Actualización (23/09/22): En el caso de los adultos mayores de 18 años, la marca de la dosis ómicron (bivalente) contra el COVID-19 que se ofrezca dependerá de su disponibilidad. Es posible que no reciba la marca que ha solicitado. Tanto Moderna como Pfizer lo protegen eficazmente contra el virus. Los CDC recomiendan que se aplique la primera dosis que se encuentre disponible, independientemente de la marca (no hay preferencia por una marca en particular). Los coloradenses de 12 a 17 años de edad se aplicarán la dosis ómicron de Pfizer en su cita de vacunación, dado que es el único tipo de dosis ómicron autorizado para este grupo etario.
