COVID-19 Vaccines

Updated Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 monovalent mRNA vaccines were approved by the FDA in September 2023 to provide broader protection against newer strains of COVID-19. The newly updated (2023-2024) Novavax protein-based vaccine is authorized for emergency use (EUA).

The COVID-19 vaccine and booster shot are available free to all.
