The updated COVID-19 boosters are now available at Milwaukee Health Department immunization clinics for everyone five years of age and older.

People who have their primary COVID-19 vaccine series and have not received a COVID-19 vaccine in the last two months are eligible for the COVID-19 booster.

"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."

Currently, only 22.5% of 5 to 11-year-olds in Milwaukee have completed their primary vaccination series, according to the Milwaukee Health Department.
