Yes. While the authorized vaccines are all safe and effective, if you want to receive a specific vaccine type, you should select a location that offers the vaccine you prefer when you schedule your appointment.
If you receive a vaccine that needs multiple doses, it is important that you receive the same vaccine for both doses. For example, if you receive the Pfizer vaccine for your first dose, you must get a Pfizer vaccine for your second dose. This same guidelines hold true for the Moderna and Novavax vaccines. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is only one dose.
It does not matter which type of updated (bivalent) booster you receive — research shows that all are effective.
