Mental & physical health

Get your COVID-19 vaccine or booster

You can find COVID-19 vaccines and booster shots in hundreds of locations throughout Philadelphia.

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

People 6 months and up can get vaccines

Everyone six months and older is now eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

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 5 years and up can get boosters

Anyone five years or 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.

Cost

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

Three COVID-19 vaccines are used in the United States. Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna 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.
