Now I am planning to get back for fall and since its more than 5 months I need a new f1 visa, although my prior visa expires in 2022.Is my visa still valid to Apply for an interview waiver or should put invalid for the same

You need a new I-20 and updated SEVIS / SEVP ID. The F-1 visa is valid but can’t be used by itself for travel without updated admission documents from your school DSO. A new consulate interview is not required.
