Who should get the vaccine?

The FDA has approved the Pfizer vaccine for individuals 16 years of age or older and it may be administered to those ages 12 to 15 under the existing Emergency Use Authorization. The Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are authorized for those 18 years of age or older. Tell your vaccine provider about all of your medical conditions. You should not get the vaccine if you have had a severe allergic reaction after a previous dose of the same vaccine or a severe allergic reaction to any ingredient of this vaccine.
