Get your COVID-19 vaccine or booster

Getting vaccinated and boosted is the best way to protect yourself, your family, your loved ones, and your community.

You can learn how to get vaccinated and boosted below. Want other information about COVID-19? Visit our COVID-19 homepage or search our latest guidance.

People 6 months and older can get vaccines

Everyone 6 months and older is eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccine and booster recommendations vary for adults and children. To learn more, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s page about staying up to date on your COVID vaccines.

The best place to get your child vaccinated is at their regular pediatrician’s office. Call before you go to make sure they have vaccines.

Children and adults can get vaccinated at health centers. People three years and up can get vaccines at many pharmacies.

People 6 months and up can get boosters

Anyone 6 months and older can get a booster dose after they’ve completed their COVID-19 vaccine series. Find out when you should get boosted.

To get a booster, you’ll need to show your vaccine card or a photo of your vaccine card. If you’ve lost your card, you can get a replacement vaccine record.


COVID-19 vaccines are free to everyone living in the United States.

Vaccine providers can bill your health insurance (if you have any), but they can’t charge you money for the vaccination.

Vaccine types and timing

Four COVID-19 vaccines are used in the United States. Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, or Novavax are preferred. In some situations, you may get Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.

Vaccine timing varies. It’s based on the type of vaccine and the age of the person getting vaccinated. Booster recommendations also vary by vaccine type and age.

For details, visit the CDC’s guide to staying up-to-date on your vaccines.
