Long Beach: Updated COVID-19 Boosters Now Available
The Californer/10208388

Release Date: 2022-09-07

Starting today, our Long Beach Health Department is beginning to offer bivalent Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 boosters. These updated boosters provide increased protection against the omicron variant and are available via walk-up at all City-run vaccine clinics. This means that if you've been waiting for the chance to get your second booster, now is the best time to go. If you would prefer to make an appointment, you can do so starting September 21: here.

Both the Pfizer and Moderna bivalent boosters are authorized for people at least two months after they completed their primary series or received their most recent booster — regardless of the total number of booster doses they have already received. The Moderna booster is available to adults 18 and older while Pfizer is approved for children 12 and older.
