Updated (bivalent) boosters now available at Ramsey County clinics

Saint Paul – Ramsey County Public Health is now offering updated (bivalent) booster shots to people ages 12 and older. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the updated COVID-19 boosters for everyone ages 12 and older who completed their primary series or received a booster dose at least 2 months ago. Stay up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines and get an updated booster now.

Why do I need an updated booster?

  • Boosters are an important part of protecting yourself from getting seriously ill or dying from COVID-19.
  • Updated boosters can help increase protection since your last shot and provide more protection against newer variants.
  • Booster shots are common for many vaccines, like the flu shot or Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis).
