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
How can I get my vaccine record?
- Fastest option: If you got any doses in Massachusetts you can find a digital record HERE at www.myvaxrecords.mass.gov
- Call your primary care office; almost all primary care offices are connected to the Massachusetts Immunization Information System (MIIS) and can direct you to either your record online or give you a printed copy.
- Call the organization/clinic/business where you received your doses.
- If you received your vaccine at a clinic run by the Northampton Department of Health and Human Services call 413-587-1216 and leave a message for a Public Health Nurse with your name, date of birth, and address. Two of our nurses have access to MIIS and will do their best to get back to you as soon as possible with a phone call.
