Updated COVID-19 vaccine

The COVID-19 vaccine available in fall 2023 is an updated vaccine, not a booster. It targets the current form of COVID-19, which changes over time. 

OHSU recommends that everyone age 6 months and older get the updated vaccine to protect against serious illness.

  • Ages 5 and older: One shot is enough to fully vaccinate most people 5 and older, even if they've never had a COVID-19 vaccine before.
  • Younger than 5: Children under age 5 should see their doctor for recommendations.

It’s safe to get the COVID-19 and flu vaccines at the same time.

Cost: Because COVID-19 is no longer a public health emergency, vaccines may no longer be free of charge. OHSU will bill you for what your insurance doesn’t pay. Vaccines are still free under Medicare, Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program. 

Make an appointment

Those 15 or older can use our online scheduling tool below to make an appointment for themselves or for their child age 12-14.  (Children up to age 5 should see their doctor. For children ages 5-11, see their doctor or go to Vaccines.gov.)

You can make an appointment for any vaccine, but appointments are required for:

  • COVID-19 vaccine (ages 12+; we offer only Moderna)
  • Flu vaccine (ages 3+)
  • Jynneos vaccine for mpox (ages 18+; available only at Physicians Pavilion Pharmacy)
