COVID-19 Vaccine Update
On September 11, 2023, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) authorized the use of the updated (monovalent) COVID-19 vaccines. These vaccines are formulated to more closely target currently circulating variants and provide better protection against serious consequences to COVID-19, including hospitalization and death. On September 12, 2023, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommended the updated vaccine for people ages six months and older. These actions relate to the updated mRNA vaccines for 2023-2024 manufactured by Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech.
The updated (monovalent) COVID-19 vaccines are expected to be available soon. In the meantime, the existing bivalent vaccines are no longer authorized. No COVID-19 vaccines are available until the new, updated version becomes available.
Our current estimate is that we will have updated COVID-19 vaccines available the last week of September. We will share updates as we have them. Thank you for your patience!
COVID-19 Data Update
Beginning the week of May 15, 2023, LCHD will no longer be updating the COVID-19 case information previously found on this webpage.
As we move into the fourth year of the COVID-19 pandemic, we know that most positive cases are not reported, so reported positive cases are no longer a good measure of local COVID-19 activity. Additionally, the end of the public health emergency on May 11, 2023 means that negative COVID-19 test results will no longer need to be reported, so we will no longer have test positivity rate data. Moving forward, hospitalizations are a much better indicator of current COVID-19 infection and severity locally. Visit CDC’s website to view COVID-19 hospital admission levels by county. Additional COVID-19 data can be found at www.michigan.gov/coronavirus.
Medications and treatments are available that can reduce your chances of being hospitalized or dying from COVID-19. Contact a healthcare provider to determine if you are eligible for treatment.
COVID-19 vaccinations are available for everyone 6 months and up through the Livingston County Health Department and other local providers.
