What is the bivalent booster? Bivalent is now the only recommended booster vaccine for COVID-19. The updated boosters add Omicron BA.4 and BA.5 spike protein components to the current vaccine composition, helping to restore protection that has waned since previous vaccination by targeting variants that are more transmissible and immune-evading. 

ECPHD is now offering the Moderna Bivalent Booster. Walk-ins are welcome but call 217-294-2838 or 217-294-2728 to ensure a nurse is available.
