COVID - 19 Vaccines - Latest updates: October 12, 2023

New guidance for 2023-2024 vaccines

The CDC recommends that all adults get an updated 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccine.

If you got a COVID-19 vaccine before September 12, 2023, you should get a single dose of an updated 2023-2024 vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, or Novavax).

If you never got a COVID-19 vaccine before, you should choose one of these options: 

  • Get 1 dose of the updated Pfizer-BioNTech or updated Moderna vaccine, or
  • Get 2 doses of the updated Novavax vaccine

If you have certain conditions that weaken your immune system, you may be eligible to get additional doses of an updated 2023-2024 vaccine. Ask your provider how many doses they recommend for you. 

Before you go to a VA health facility to get a COVID-19 vaccine, call to make sure the facility has the vaccine you want.

Those interested in receiving the updated COVID-19 vaccine can call VA Fargo Health Care System at 1-855-846-8154 and select option 2 to inquire about 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccine appointment locations and options.
  • Hours of operation for this phone line are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Central Time.
  • You may also call your local VA outpatient clinic to discuss vaccine options.
