The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the updated bivalent COVID-19 vaccine as a single dose booster on Aug.

12, the CDC recommends that people ages 5 years and older receive one updated (bivalent) booster if it has been at least two months since their last COVID-19 vaccine dose, whether that was their final primary series dose, or an original (monovalent) booster.

The Georgia Department of Health does not track the percentage of people who have received the updated bivalent booster.

Missy Jackson, the Director of Nursing at the University Health Center, said the UHC has been administering COVID-19 vaccines since the first monovalent vaccines were first released.

The University Health Center follows CDC guidelines for the bivalent booster.

Jackson also said the Georgia Department of Public Health and local pharmacies in the Athens area are available to provide the bivalent COVID-19 vaccine.
