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.

If you received your 2nd dose of the vaccine or recently had COVID, you should wait two months to get the updated booster. For the most current information, go to the CDC website.

The COVID-19 vaccines and boosters are free for everyone. Immigrants in the USA can get the vaccine. Your immigration status does not matter.
