People age 65 and older now have the option of getting their second bivalent COVID-19 vaccine at no charge from RiverStone Health.

“The Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have approved a second dose of the newest COVID-19 vaccine for people age 65 and older whose first dose of this bivalent vaccine was received at least four months ago. Bivalent means that the vaccine contains protection against the original COVID-19 virus strain along with protection against newer Omicron variants,” according to RiverStone Health.

When the COVID-19 public health emergency ends in the U.S. in May 2023, you'll still have access to a multitude of tests but with one big difference: who pays for them. For the first time, you may have to pick up some or all of the costs, depending on your insurance coverage and whether the tests are done at home or in a doctor's office. (AP Photo/Patrick Sison)
