Duke Health offers limited doses of the updated COVID-19 boosters as increased protection against the virus. They help restore protection that has waned since previous vaccination and are designed to broaden protection against the newer variants, including the current Omicron variant.
The updated boosters were authorized by the FDA and recommended by the CDC. Limited doses of the updated boosters are available to eligible people two months after completion of the primary series of the COVID-19 vaccination (this includes the two-dose vaccine, three-dose vaccine for people who are immunocompromised or one-dose vaccine), or a booster.
- Per CDC and FDA guidelines, Duke offers limited doses of the Pfizer booster to people aged 12 and older two months after the second dose of any two-dose COVID-19 vaccination, one-dose COVID-19 vaccination, or any booster dose.
The boosters were developed using the same approach as the flu vaccine, which is updated every year. If you have trouble scheduling your booster appointment, please check back as we are consistently receiving more doses and adding more appointments.
