Does the COVID-19 shot work if we need a booster shot?
Yes. The COVID-19 shot works even if we need a booster shot. Public health experts noticed that the vaccine’s effectivity against mild and moderate disease may reduce over time. The booster is designed to increase the protection we have against the COVID virus.
Are COVID-19 booster shots effective at preventing severe illness with COVID-19?
COVID-19 booster shots are effective in preventing severe illnesses in both children and adults.
What COVID vaccines and boosters are available for kids?
The FDA gave the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine emergency use authorization (EUA) in children ages 5-15 years old. The FDA gave full approval to use the Pfizer vaccine in people ages 16 years and older.
The Moderna vaccine, on the other hand, is only authorized for use in individuals 18 years old and older. Children 5 to 11 years old are still not eligible for booster shots. Children 12 to 17 years old can get the Pfizer-BioNTech booster at least five months after their second vaccine dose.
Individuals 18 and above can get either a Pfizer or Moderna booster shot. These vaccines and boosters are available at all Nao Medical clinics across New York.
Is the COVID-19 booster stronger than the first two vaccines?
The COVID-19 booster is not stronger than the first two vaccines. In addition to the first two doses, it helps provide greater protection against the virus, especially against the Delta and Omicron variants.
Can kids still get COVID-19 after having the vaccine?
Kids can still get COVID-19 after having the vaccine, but the vaccine offers benefits such as milder symptoms and quicker recovery.
Who should not take the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine?
Your child should not take the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine if he/she has a severe allergic reaction to any ingredient in the vaccine. Learn more about COVID-19 vaccines and allergies here.

My visits have been fantastic both times I’ve gone. The woman at the front desk was courteous and professional, and prompt. The nurse was excellent. Same treatment as the front desk and the smoothest phlebotomist going. The doctor was great, calm, thorough, polite, and knowledgeable. I wish he were my GP. Overall? 11 out of 10.

The staff and the doctors were all very kind and caring. I was very worried about my child’s health. I appreciate your clinic being open on Saturdays. This saved us a trip to the ER, which can be scary for a child. Thank you again!

I’ve been to Nao Medical, I think, three times, and their staff is delightful. If you are in dire pain, they take you in as soon as possible, if not sooner. The offices and exam rooms are spotless. All of the medical staff is very knowledgeable, patient, and understanding. I highly recommend it.

My daughter came in with stomach pain, and your doctor was able to diagnose that she probably had appendicitis. I took her to the emergency room, and she did have to have her appendix removed. Thank you so much for your help.
