COVID-19 Update – October 2022

The health, safety, and well-being of our members and employees continues to be the top priority of FHCP. Following CDC Guidelines, the following are reminders of the protocols and services that FHCP has in place to protect and keep everyone safe.

What steps is FHCP taking to keep you safe?

Vaccine

Vaccination for COVID-19 remains key in preventing severe illness and hospitalization, as a large majority of patients admitted to the hospital are not vaccinated. If you have not yet received the vaccine, please consider doing so now.

FHCP is offering the Moderna vaccine to anyone in the community who wishes to be vaccinated. An appointment is appreciated but is not necessary. Vaccinations and booster shots will be given on a walk-in basis. Click here to find a location.

COVID-19 Booster Recommendations

FHCP is offering the new bivalent booster shots from Moderna also known as an “updated booster” which targets both the original strain of SARS-CoV-2 and omicron subvariants BA.4 and BA.5

The Moderna Vaccine bivalent booster is only authorized for adults 18y/o and older.

  • Everyone ages 6 months through 4 years should get all COVID-19 primary series doses.
  • Everyone ages 5 years and older should get all primary series doses, and the booster dose recommended for them by CDC, if eligible.
  • Everyone ages 5 years to 11 years is currently recommended to get the original monovalent booster.
  • Everyone ages 12 years – 17 years is recommended to receive one bivalent booster. Currently only the Pfizer bivalent booster is recommended for this age group.
  • Everyone ages 18 years and older is recommended to receive the Moderna bivalent booster
    • This includes those who have received all primary series doses and people who have previously received one or more original monovalent boosters.

Booster Cross-Over Information

People who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least 2 months ago or the Pfizer vaccine at least 6 months ago may cross-over and receive a Moderna booster.
