About the COVID-19 Vaccines
Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself, your family, and your community from the virus that causes COVID-19. The available COVID-19 vaccines are safe and highly effective against severe illness, hospitalization, and death due to COVID-19, including from the Delta variant. For the strongest protection against COVID-19, you need all recommended doses.
- Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine requires one initial dose.
- The Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines require two initial doses.
CDC recommends any of the available vaccines. Children 12 years and older are eligible to get the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID- 19 vaccine. Learn more at cdc.gov/coronavirus. Further-Remember October begins FLU shot season.
