COVID-19 Vaccine FAQs

  • According to CDC, as of May 24, 2021, any U.S. resident 12 years of age and older is now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

    Individuals who are between 12 and 18 years of age must be accompanied by, or receive the consent of, a parent or legal guardian.

  • CDC reports that COVID-19 vaccines in the U.S. are “safe and effective at preventing COVID-19.”

    • Pfizer-BioNTech
    • Moderna

  • You should get the vaccine that is immediately available and most easily accessible from your location. CDC reports that all three vaccines are “safe, effective and reduce your risk of severe illness.” 

  • COVID-19 vaccines are 100% free, even if you are uninsured. 

  • With the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, two doses (of the same brand vaccine that you initially received) are required, approximately 28 days apart. You will be considered fully vaccinated two weeks after your second dose.
