COVID-19 Vaccines at UPMC

In September, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved updated COVID-19 vaccines formulated to target current circulating variants and to provide better protection against serious consequences of COVID-19, including hospitalization and death.

Given this most recent update, UPMC will no longer administer our current supply of the COVID-19 vaccine.

COVID-19 vaccination remains an important way to protect yourself, your loved ones, and the community against currently circulating variants. COVID-19 vaccines have lowered the risk of serious complications, including hospitalization and death.

UPMC recommends the 2023-2024 seasonal vaccination for everyone 6 months and older, in line with the most recent federal guidance from the FDA and CDC. Getting vaccinated and staying up to date on vaccinations is recommended to prepare your immune system, especially as we begin respiratory virus season.

The new 2023-24 seasonal COVID-19 vaccine will soon be available from UPMC. This web page will be updated as soon as possible when the vaccine is available. If you have questions about the COVID-19 vaccine, you can visit the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) website and/or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.
