Time to Get Boosted

Posted on by Lawrence Tabak, D.D.S., Ph.D.

I got my COVID-19 bivalent vaccine booster last weekend. The Moderna and the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 bivalent vaccine boosters should be now widely available in communities around the country. If it’s been two months since you completed your primary vaccination series or received a booster, you are eligible to receive the bivalent booster. I encourage all those eligible to get the updated vaccine booster, especially with winter on the way.

    We got boosted and got our flu shot in early September. We caught covid in May after being fully boosted, but were pleased it was mild covid. We would not have wanted to have covid if we were not fully boosted. We realize vaccines are not 100 pct effective at preventing illness but the vaccinations did their job keeping us from ending up in the hospital

  • Christopher Clausen says:

    A number of posts in reliable places indicate that this booster was approved on the basis of tests on a small number of mice and no humans–that its safety and efficacy are unknown. Is this in fact true? If you don’t answer in some detail it will confirm the suspicions of those who believe the FDA is being reckless at best. (I speak as someone who eagerly accepted the original covid vaccinations and booster.)

    What is the comment?

  • Ajay Chitnis says:

    I noticed that the nih clinical center is still providing Covid-19 booster shots. Are they older Pfizer or Moderna shots or new nivale to shots?
