COVID boosters available for 16 and up

Pfizer COVID-19 booster doses are now available for those 16 and older.

On Dec. 9, the FDA amended the Emergency Use Authorization for the Pfizer vaccine, authorizing the use of a single booster dose for all individuals 16 and 17 years old after completing the primary series. The booster dose is recommended six months after a primary two-dose COVID-19 series.
