COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Last Updated: May 23, 2022

The COVID-19 vaccine has been proven safe and effective at preventing hospitalizations and death due to SARS-CoV-2, and everyone ages 5 and older is now eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine. 

At this time, three COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, and J&J) have been authorized for the primary series, with both Pfizer and Moderna receiving FDA approval. All three vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, and J&J) have also been authorized for the first booster doses, and Pfizer and Moderna have been authorized for use for second booster doses. Please note: Pfizer is the only vaccine currently authorized for individuals ages 5 - 17, so individuals in that age group must find a provider who offers Pfizer.

Who is Eligible?

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend that everyone stay up to date with their COVID-19 vaccines. That means individuals 5 years of age and above are recommended to receive a primary series, 12 years of age and older are recommended to receive a booster dose, and those 50 years of age and above are recommended to receive a second booster. Everyone who is eligible should get a booster shot!   

All three COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, and J&J) are now authorized for booster doses. You can choose the brand of your booster shot and get your booster anywhere that offers the vaccine brand you want.
