The pandemic is not over.

More and more people are getting vaccinated every day, but the CDC says we have not yet reached the vaccination rate that would help us achieve herd immunity globally or nationally.

Right now, anyone age 12 and older are eligible for the vaccine and clinical trials are underway for younger kids.

  • The Pfizer vaccine is authorized for people 12 and older
  • The Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are authorized for ages 18 and up

WHERE CAN YOU GET A VACCINE?
