COVID-19 Bivalent Vaccine Update
Vaccinations remain the best defense against severe COVID-19 illness and hospitalization.
The new Pfizer and Moderna boosters that target the BA.4 and BA.5 subvariants of Omicron were approved last week by both the Food and Drug Administration and the CDC. The new booster vaccines are also referred to as “updated boosters” or “bivalent boosters.”
An updated booster is recommended for everyone ages 12 and older at least 2 months after their last COVID-19 vaccine dose (either the final primary series dose or the last booster). This is regardless of how many boosters or which type of vaccine(s) you got in the past.
Student Health Services is administering Bivalent Pfizer (ONLY) Booster shots starting Wednesday, September 14th, 2022.
Faculty and staff must call the Student Health Center (310.660.3643) to make an appointment (**NO Drop-In Hours**), and students may call or make an appointment online 24/7 in their Patient Portal. Vaccinations/boosters will be administered only to ECC employees and ECC students at this time.
