Statement by President Biden on FDA and CDC Authorizing Updated COVID-⁠19 Vaccines | Eastern North Carolina Now | This week, we begin a new phase in our COVID-19 response. We are launching a new vaccine – our first in almost two years – with a new approach.

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
Press Release:

September 6


    This week, we begin a new phase in our COVID-19 response. We are launching a new vaccine - our first in almost two years - with a new approach. For most Americans, that means one COVID-19 shot, once a year, each fall.

    Starting this week, at tens of thousands of convenient pharmacies, doctor's offices, and community health centers, and other places, Americans age 12 and older can go get this new fall COVID-19 vaccine. The new vaccines provide the strongest protection from the new Omicron strain of the COVID virus, which did not exist when the original vaccine was developed. As the virus continues to change, we will now be able to update our vaccines annually to target the dominant variant. Just like your annual flu shot, you should get it sometime between Labor Day and Halloween. It's safe, it's easy to get, and it's free. Go to Vaccines.gov to find a location near your home or work.

    It's simple, and it's easy to understand: If you are vaccinated and 12 and older, get the new COVID-19 shot this fall. This once-a-year shot can reduce your risk of getting COVID-19, reduce your chance of spreading it to others, and dramatically reduce your risk of severe COVID-19.

    Winter is not that far away. The past two years, we have seen COVID-19 cases and deaths soar. It does not have to be that way this year. If you are 12 and older, go get your new COVID-19 shot this fall.

    JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR.
