CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky endorsed ACIP’s vote to expand eligibility and strengthen the recommendations for booster doses. CDC now recommends that all adolescents aged 12-17 years should receive a booster shot 5 months after their primary series. Dr. Walensky encourages all parents to keep their children up to date with CDC’s COVID-19 vaccine recommendations. She stated that, "This booster dose will provide optimized protection against COVID-19 and the Omicron variant".
We are thrilled about this news and are happy to open our doors to all eligible adolescents. We continue to serve the community and are dedicated to providing the best experience possible.
For those concerned about vaccinating their children, data shows that COVID-19 boosters help broaden and strengthen protection against Omicron and other SARS-CoV-2 variants. ACIP reviewed the available safety data following the administration of over 25 million vaccine doses in adolescents and found that COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective.
