What You Should Know About the COVID-19 Vaccines

As vaccines become more widely available, it’s important to keep taking steps to slow the spread of COVID-19.

  • Limit gatherings with others.
  • Practice social distancing.
  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Wear a mask in public.

Once the COVID-19 vaccine becomes available to you, here’s what you should know:

  • You will need two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine for it to be effective. When you receive your first dose, make sure to schedule your second dose.
  • Medicare covers the COVID-19 vaccine, so there will be no cost to you.
  • State governments are handling the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines. Look for updates from your state and local officials as more doses of the vaccine become available for additional priority groups.

Visit CDC.gov for additional trustworthy information on the COVID-19 vaccines.
