As September 22, 2022, the federal government has reopened bivalent Moderna COVID-19 vaccine ordering.  Please note that supplies of Moderna vaccine may still be limited in the coming weeks and vaccine providers are allowed to order 1-2 weeks' supply at a time through the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. The Northampton Department of Health and Human Services COVID clinic staff is doing everything they can to keep Moderna in stock; we will always have the Pfizer bivalent option as there is no issue ordering Pfizer. 

The CDC recommends vaccination with the new COVID19 bivalent boosters. The Pfizer bivalent booster is available for anyone ages 12+ and the Moderna is available for anyone ages 18+. Your most recent dose of COVID vaccine must be at least two months ago. See below for more information on booster timing after recent COVID infection. The CDC does recommend getting both influenza vaccine "the flu shot" and COVID booster vaccine doses this season. The timing may include both vaccines on the same day.

Information about the new "bivalent" COVID vaccine booster shots

What are the updated boosters? The new COVID-19 booster vaccines from Moderna and Pfizer are updated versions of the original vaccines. The updated boosters were recently authorized by the FDA and recommended by the CDC. 

Who should get the new booster?  Anyone age 12 or older who completed a primary COVID-19 vaccination series or received a booster dose at least two months ago should get the updated booster as soon as possible.

 Why do I need a booster?   Staying up to date on vaccines, including boosters, is the most effective way to prevent serious illness, hospitalization, and death from COVID-19. While vaccine protection decreases over time, boosters restimulate the immune system and increase vaccine efficacy again. Boosters are an important defense, even if you’ve already had COVID.

When and where can I get a booster?  Updated boosters will be available in Massachusetts starting the week of September 5, 2022. You can get a booster at many locations across the Commonwealth, including where you received previous vaccines. Locations include doctor’s offices, hospitals, pharmacies, and community health clinics.

 Where can I get more information? You can visit www.mass.gov/covidbooster for the latest information (note: this webpage will be updated later on Friday September 2, 2022)
