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 at preventing severe illness, hospitalization, and death due to COVID.
To get the most protection from the vaccines, you need all the recommended doses:
- 2 doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine plus 1 booster when you’re eligible.
- 1 dose of Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine plus 1 booster when you’re eligible.
People ages 5–17 can get the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.
You can get a 2nd booster 4 months after your 1st, if you’re:
- 50 or older and got the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine.
- 18 or older and got the Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.
People with compromised immune systems are less able to fight infections and may need additional vaccine doses.
