Vaccine Guidance

Clinical Team

Last updated May 1, 2023

The FDA approved and the CDC recommended that adults ≥ 65 years are eligible to receive a 2nd COVID bivalent booster no sooner than 4 months after the 1st. Those who are immunocompromised are eligible to receive a 2nd bivalent booster at least 2 months after the first, and subsequent doses at intervals per the discretion of the healthcare provider.

The Moderna bivalent vaccine is available for eligible Arise patients at select locations (Frederick, Rockville, Olney, Wheaton, Chevy Chase, and Fairfax). To schedule an appointment, please request one through the patient portal rather than call the office.

As of May 1st, masks will be optional at all Arise clinics.
