Now Available Through CompuNet: Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Bivalent Booster

Premier Pulse     September 2022

The Food and Drug Administration recently granted Emergency Use Authorization for the Pfizer BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 bivalent vaccines as a single booster dose. The bivalent vaccines add Omicron BA.4 and BA.5 spike protein components to the current COVID vaccine composition and, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, should help to restore protection that has waned since previous vaccination by targeting more transmissible variants.

Starting September 8, CompuNet will offer the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 bivalent booster for ages 12 and older. The bivalent single booster dose can be administered at least two months after either the completion of the primary first or second dose COVID vaccine series or the most recent COVID booster dose. The Pfizer booster can be administered to individuals who have previously had the Moderna, Pfizer, or J&J vaccine.

CompuNet patient service centers ask that appointments be scheduled for vaccines. Appointments can be scheduled online at As a reminder, if a patient has had one COVID vaccine and is planning to receive their second dose or a booster, they will need to bring their COVID vaccine card to the appointment. Insurance will be billed for the COVID vaccine, and there is no out-of-pocket cost to the patient.

Patients may opt to receive both the COVID and flu vaccines simultaneously as the CDC has deemed it safe to administer both vaccines together.  It is also safe to mix or match either the Pfizer or Moderna COVID booster vaccines. However, a patient’s primary COVID vaccine first or second dose series should be from the same manufacturer (Pfizer, Moderna, or J&J).
