The CDC recommends 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.
The updated COVID vaccines for the fall/winter 2023-24 season are based on a variant called XBB.1.5. They are the only COVID vaccines that are available this season. The recommendation is 1 single dose of an updated COVID-19 vaccine formulation. (People who are immunocompromised or ages 6 months to 4 years may need more than one 2023-2024 vaccine.)
People 5 years and older should wait at least two months after getting the last dose of any COVID-19 vaccine before getting the updated COVID vaccine.
The 2023-34 COVID-19 vaccine is available for Johns Hopkins Medicine patients at the following Johns Hopkins Outpatient Pharmacy locations: JHOC, Bayview, Weinberg, Monument Street, Bartlett, and Green Spring Station.
