CORPUS CHRISTI TX – The Corpus Christi - Nueces County Public Health District announces the arrival of 5,000 doses of Moderna’s bivalent booster vaccine.

“With the Fall weather around the corner, the booster is highly recommended as this protects against the original COVID-19 strain and the Omicron variants, BA.4 and BA.5,” said Dr. Srikanth Ramachandruni, local health authority.  

The Health District received 4,800 doses of Pfizer’s Bivalent booster last week and began providing the doses at no cost at all City - County Public Health District Clinics.

  • For Moderna, must be at least 18 years of age or older
  • For Pfizer, must be at least 12 years of age or older
  • Must be up to date with a primary COVID-19 vaccine series
  • The booster can only be administered a minimum of 2 months after completion of an authorized COVID-19 vaccine series
