About the vaccine

Several COVID-19 vaccines have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) pursuant to their emergency use authorization. The vaccines are available to all individuals free of charge.

The COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective, and we encourage you to get vaccinated.

Note: The FDA has attached warnings on the Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine. Learn more on the vaccine recipient and vaccination provider fact sheets.

Be aware of vaccine scams

As COVID-19 vaccine distribution begins, be aware that scams are starting to emerge. It’s important to know what signs to watch for, including:

  • You are asked to pay out-of-pocket to get the vaccine or early access to the vaccine
  • You are asked to put your name on a vaccine waiting list or to get early access
  • Marketers offering to sell or ship doses of the vaccine for payment
