Updated COVID-19 Boosters Available for People 5 Years and Older at Milwaukee Health Department Immunization Clinics

MILWAUKEE – Following authorization from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS), the updated COVID-19 boosters are now available at Milwaukee Health Department immunization clinics for everyone 5 years of age and older.

Those who have received their primary COVID-19 vaccine series and have not received a COVID-19 vaccine dose in the last two months are eligible for the updated COVID-19 booster. Currently, only 22.5% of 5 to 11 year olds in Milwaukee have completed their primary vaccination series. The Milwaukee Health Department strongly recommends parents and caregivers prioritize the primary COVID-19 vaccination series for their young children so they become eligible for the updated booster as soon as possible.

“Especially as children return the classroom for the school year, it’s more important than ever to make sure they are up-to-date on their COVID-19 vaccines,” said Milwaukee Health Commissioner Kirsten Johnson. “These updated boosters can protect your children against the severe outcomes from COVID-19, including long COVID, and will ensure they can safely continue in-person learning in the classroom. It’s imperative for all of us in Milwaukee to boost our immunity against COVID-19 today.”
