Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)


We continue to monitor federal, state, and other agencies for new or revised information and guidance. 
The AGEG Board of Directors encourage all funeral service professionals to follow best practices and guidance.  
It is important to share guidance and information with your fellow funeral home staff as it becomes available 
so you may 
continue to safely serve your families and community. 

AGEG members are updated by email and this page is updated as guidance and information becomes available.  

The links below will take you directly to the individual websites to ensure the latest information is accessible.

Stay Up to Date with COVID-19 Vaccines Including Boosters

What You Need to Know

CDC recommends everyone stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccination, including all primary series doses and the updated booster.
  • Everyone ages 5 years and older should receive the primary series of COVID-19 vaccination.
  • Everyone aged 5 years and older should receive 1 bivalent mRNA booster at least 2 months after completion of the primary series or any other previously administered monovalent booster dose(s).
    • The Pfizer bivalent booster is authorized for ages 5 years and older
    • The Moderna bivalent booster is authorized for ages 6 years and older
  • A monovalent Novavax booster dose (instead of a bivalent mRNA booster dose) may be used in limited situations in people ages 18 years and older who completed any FDA-approved or FDA-authorized monovalent primary series, have not received any previous booster dose(s), and are unable to receive an mRNA vaccine (i.e., mRNA vaccine contraindicated or not available) or unwilling to receive an mRNA vaccine and would otherwise not receive a booster dose.
  • Getting a COVID-19 vaccine after you recover from COVID-19 infection provides added protection against COVID-19.
  • People who are moderately or severely immunocompromised have different recommendations for COVID-19 vaccines. They should get a bivalent booster dose when they are eligible.
  • COVID-19 vaccine and booster recommendations may be updated as CDC continues to monitor the latest data.
