COVID-19 Vaccine Information

For information about COVID-19 testing, please click here.

 

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 6 months and older are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. Individuals ages 12 and older are eligible for booster doses. Children ages 5 to 11 are eligible for Pfizer booster doses only.
