COVID-19 vaccines available in the United States are effective at protecting people—especially those who are boosted— from getting seriously ill, being hospitalized, and even dying. As with other diseases, you are protected best from COVID-19 when you stay up to date with the recommended vaccines.
Four COVID-19 vaccines are approved or authorized in the United States:
- Pfizer- BioNTech
- Johnson & Johnson
The updated (bivalent) boosters are called bivalent because they protect against both the original virus that causes COVID-19 and the Omicron variant BA.4 and BA.5. The virus that causes COVID-19 has changed over time. Learn more about the different variants of COVID-19.
COVID-19 Vaccines for Children and Teens
CDC recommends COVID-19 vaccines for everyone 6 months and older and boosters for everyone 5 years and older, if eligible. Use CDC’s COVID-19 booster tool to learn if and when your child or teen can get boosters to stay up to date with their COVID-19 vaccines.
Visit the CDC for more information on COVID-19 Vaccines.
