COVID-19 Information

As we continue to work through the many changes COVID-19 has brought to our lives, Henry Ford’s care teams are prepared to provide up-to-date, effective care to our patients and loved ones affected by COVID-19.

Available Now: Bivalent third doses for children ages 6 months through 5 years

Updated bivalent third doses/boosters have been authorized by the FDA and recommended by the CDC for children ages 6 months through 5 years. The Pfizer bivalent third dose is authorized for children 6 months through 4 years old. The Moderna bivalent booster is authorized for ages 6 months through 5 years old.

Henry Ford Health offers only the Pfizer vaccine. We offer the updated Pfizer bivalent third dose for patients ages 6 months through 4 years old at our Pediatric and Primary Care sites. Make an appointment using MyChart or by calling your child’s doctor. Other options are available at

Important details about the third doses/boosters:

  • Pfizer: If your child is 6 months through 4 years old and receives the Pfizer vaccine, they will be given the original monovalent Pfizer vaccine for their first two primary doses. They will receive the updated bivalent Pfizer vaccine for their third primary dose.
    • If your child already started vaccinations with Pfizer, they will receive the updated bivalent vaccine for their third primary dose.
    • If your child already completed their three-dose primary series with Pfizer vaccine, they are not yet eligible for a booster dose.  
  • Moderna: Children ages 6 months through 5 years old who receive Moderna for their primary doses can receive a bivalent Moderna booster 2 months or more after their last primary dose. (Henry Ford Health does not offer the Moderna vaccine.)
