Vaccines for COVID-19 help your body make the antibodies needed for your immune system to fight off the virus if you are exposed to it.
Three COVID-19 vaccines are authorized or approved for use in the United States to prevent COVID-19. Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna (COVID-19 mRNA vaccines) are preferred. You may get Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine in some situations.
Who is eligible to receive the vaccine and boosters?
All individuals ages 5 and older are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. Individuals ages 12 and older are eligible for booster doses.
