Gov. Jared Polis (seated) receives an updated COVID-19 booster at Ball Arena in Denver on September 7, 2022. The state plans to open 10 community vaccination sites that will offer the updated booster over the next week.

By now, some Coloradans have had as many as five shots to protect them against COVID-19 — the latest being the new bivalent booster, which targets newer variants. It's available at pharmacies and clinics across the state. Dr. Diane Janowicz, an infectious disease specialist at St. Mary's Medical Center in Grand Junction, answers questions about the latest booster.
