Key Points for Practice

• The COVID-19 primary vaccination series is recommended for everyone six months and older.

• Bivalent COVID-19 vaccine boosters are recommended for everyone six months to four years of age who completed the Moderna primary series and everyone five years and older to improve protection from the Omicron variant.

• The pneumococcal vaccines PCV15 and PCV20 are recommended for adults 65 years and older; those who received older vaccines should be given an updated version.

• For pre- and postexposure prophylaxis against mpox, Jynneos is recommended as a standard 0.5-mL subcutaneous injection or a 0.1-mL intradermal injection.
