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.
Currently there are three vaccines (developed by Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson) that have received Emergency Authorization Use in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration. Other pharmaceutical companies are working on additional vaccines.
The approved vaccines have been shown in clinical trials to be more than 95% effective.
Who Is Eligible to Receive the Vaccine?
All individuals ages 12 and older are now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.
