Stay current with COVID vaccines and booster shots
Stay protected against COVID-19 by being up to date with your primary series vaccines and boosters.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated their COVID recommendations this fall:
- Updated (bivalent) boosters became available September 2, 2022.
- CDC recommends everyone stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines for their age group:
- Getting a COVID-19 vaccine after you recover from COVID-19 infection provides added protection against COVID-19.
- If you recently had COVID-19, you may consider delaying your next vaccine dose (primary dose or booster) by 3 months from when your symptoms started or, if you had no symptoms, when you first received a positive test.
- People who are moderately or severely immunocompromised have different recommendations for COVID-19 vaccines.
- COVID-19 vaccine and booster recommendations may be updated as CDC continues to monitor the latest COVID-19 data.
For additional recommendations and to see if you’re up to date visit the CDC website.
COVID vaccination surcharge
If you enroll in an Veradigm medical plan and you have not been vaccinated for COVID, you will pay a COVID vaccination surcharge of $10 per month ($5 per paycheck). Please refer to the “US COVID-19 Vaccination Policy” available on the Policies intranet page.
If you are vaccinated but haven’t entered your vaccination status in Oracle, please do so as soon as possible to avoid the surcharge.
