FAQs

Are you offering the new bivalent vaccine in your office? 

The new bivalent vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna are now available, and we offer the Moderna bivalent booster for those ages 6 years and older in our office.

What ages are currently approved for the new bivalent vaccine? 

5 years and older. The Pfizer bivalent vaccine is approved for those 5 years and older. The Moderna bivalent vaccine is approved for those 6 years and older.

Do you have a strong preference regarding Moderna versus Pfizer vaccines? 

Not really. For those younger than 5 years of age, the Moderna primary series is simpler (only two doses needed) and perhaps more effective. 

Is it safe to receive the influenza vaccine at the same time as a COVID-19 vaccine? 

Yes. We recommend saving yourself an extra trip and getting both done at the same visit. 

When can my child receive a COVID-19 booster? 

As soon as recommended by the CDC. However, if you’ve recently had COVID-19, some experts suggest waiting a few months before getting a booster. Please consult your PCP if you have specific questions regarding this timing.
