Anyone 6 months and older may get vaccinated, and individuals must receive an age-appropriate COVID-19 vaccine.
The CDC recommends the Moderna, Novavax and Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines for the primary vaccination series. Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech are available for anyone 6 months and older, and Novavax is available for anyone 12 and older. For booster vaccination, CDC recommends eligible people 6 months and older receive an age-appropriate, updated Pfizer or Moderna vaccine that offers better protection against variants.
