Recently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration expanded the authorization of updated COVID boosters to children as young as the age of 5. These bivalent boosters target the original strain of the SARS-CoV-2 virus as well as the BA.4 and BA.5 subvariants of Omicron. People are eligible for an updated booster two months after their primary vaccination or previous booster shot. 

Overall, roughly half of Genesee County’s residents have completed their primary vaccination, meaning two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or one dose of Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine, as of Oct. 26.
