Moderna, Pfizer Omicron (Bivalent) Booster Shots

The FDA and CDC have authorized the Moderna (18 and older) and Pfizer (12 and older) Omicron-specific booster shots. Howard County Health Department will begin offering a limited supply of this updated vaccine at clinics beginning the week of September 12. Appointments are available using the calendar below. Please note the vaccine type and age range before making an appointment. Vaccine is also available at local pharmacies, urgent care centers, and retail stores. You can visit the Maryland Vaccine Locater to find a vaccination location convenient to you.

Novavax COVID-19 Protein-Based Vaccine

Novavax was recently authorized by the CDC as another vaccine to protect against the COVID-19 virus.  Novavax is recommended for those 12 and up who have not previously been vaccinated.  Novavax is a protein-based vaccine (similar to current hepatitis B or HPV vaccines).  The vaccine is given in two doses, three to eight weeks apart.  There is currently no authorization for a booster dose of Novavax.  For more detailed information visit the CDC Novavax Vaccine page.

Check the vaccination clinic schedule below for upcoming Novavax clinics.
