Availability of Vaccines
Many doctors’ offices, retail pharmacies, hospitals, and clinics offer COVID-19 vaccinations. Visit vaccines.gov to find locations that are offering vaccines to everyone ages 6 months and older. Parents can check with their child’s healthcare provider, their local pharmacy, and health department about whether they offer COVID-19 vaccination. Learn more about how to find a COVID-19 vaccine.
Important Reminder: Stay safe until your vaccine reaches full effectiveness:
- Pfizer and Moderna vaccines take up to 2 weeks after the 2nd dose for full effectiveness; 1-dose Johnson & Johnson can take up to 28 days.
- All three vaccines are highly effective at preventing life-threatening illness, but they do not offer 100% protection from catching or spreading COVID-19; no vaccine gives 100% protection.
- While the virus continues to spread, mask-wearing and social distancing are still important safety protocols.
