UPDATE 9/12/2023:

On September 11, 2023, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration approved and authorized the updated mRNA COVID-19 vaccine to include a monovalent (single) component that corresponds to the Omicron variant XBB.1.5. With this update, the bivalent COVID-19 dose is no longer authorized for use. The City of Milwaukee Health Department will not be able to administer any doses of the COVID-19 vaccine until we receive the new vaccine, which is anticipated in late September. More details will be shared when available.
