Is there a vaccine against COVID-19?

 

  • YesA number of pharmaceutical companies have developed or are in the process of developing and testing vaccines for COVID-19 - see the complete list/tracker HERE.

  • The FDA has issued Emergency Use Authorization for 2 vaccines as of December 2020. Read more about these vaccines on the FDA website.

  • Because initial supplies of vaccine are limited, the CDC has developed guidelines for tiered distribution of the vaccines based on risk. 

  • We encourage everyone to get vaccinated when they become eligible because vaccination is a key step in saving lives and ending the pandemic. We recognize, however, that this is a personal decision, and that many people have questions about the vaccine. We will continue to update information about the vaccine on this page to help answer some of these questions.

  • Whether you are vaccinated or not, please continue wearing a mask, practicing social distancing and washing your hands frequently.
