COVID-19 is no longer a global emergency, but you can still get sick with the coronavirus. Restrictions, like using masks and social distancing are no longer in place. Getting the COVID-19 vaccine is still recommended. 

The COVID-19 vaccine is available to everyone in the USA who is 6 months of age and older. The vaccine can decrease your risk of infection and severe illness.

It is important to stay up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines, including boosters. For the most current information, go to the CDC website.

In the following months, the government will stop managing the COVID-19 vaccines. Doctors that still have government vaccines should provide them to you for free.

After the federal vaccine supply ends, you can still get vaccinated.

Many doctors and pharmacies will still offer the COVID-19 vaccine.

  • Children will still get the vaccine for free in most states.
  • Insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid will cover the cost of your vaccine.
  • Your vaccine will still be free at some pharmacies and community centers if you don’t have insurance.
