Last week, the FDA amended the authorization of the bivalent COVID-19 vaccine. This decision has changed the COVID-19 vaccination guidance for many groups. Adults 65 years of age and older who received a bivalent booster at least 4 months ago are now eligible for a second bivalent booster, and immunocompromised people are eligible for a second bivalent booster at least two months after their last booster. Migrant Clinicians Network has published this helpful summary of the new guidance, available in English and Spanish, that you can use to help others determine how to stay up-to-date on vaccinations.
