 Everyone 5 years and older is eligible to receive the updated vaccine if they completed their primary COVID-19 shots or received a booster at least two months ago. The updated vaccine has not yet been approved for children under 5 years.

The new vaccine, also called bivalent booster, provides protection against the original coronavirus and current variants. The Commonwealth Fund estimates that if 80% of eligible Americans stay up-to-date by getting the updated vaccine, 90,000 deaths and 936,000 hospitalizations can be prevented this winter.

COVID-19 vaccine is available at medical provider offices and other locations around Sedgwick County: Vaccine Clinic Locations | Sedgwick County, Kansas.
