FALLS CHURCH, Va. –
This page is being updated based on the Sept. 12, 2023, decision and recommendation by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that everyone 6 months and older get an updated COVID-19 vaccine to protect against the potentially serious outcomes of COVID-19 illness this fall and winter.
Vaccination remains the best protection against COVID-19-related hospitalization and death. Vaccination also reduces your chance of suffering the effects of Long COVID, which can develop during or following acute infection and last for an extended duration. If you have not received a COVID-19 vaccine in the past two months, get an updated COVID-19 vaccine to protect yourself this fall and winter.
Updated COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna will be available starting this month. Check with your Military Treatment Facility or health care provider for availability and appointments to receive your updated 2023-24 COVID-19 vaccine.
