COVID-19 vaccines approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) available in the United States are effective at protecting people from getting seriously ill, being hospitalized, and dying. As with other vaccine-preventable diseases, you are best protected from COVID-19 when you stay up to date with the recommended vaccinations.
COVID-19 vaccines recommended for use in the United States:
2023-2024 Updated COVID-19 Vaccines:
As of October 3, 2023, the 2023-2024 updated Novavax vaccine was recommended by CDC for use in the United States.
As of September 12, 2023, the 2023–2024 updated Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines were recommended by CDC for use in the United States.
The 2023–2024 updated COVID-19 vaccines more closely targets the XBB lineage of the Omicron variant and could restore protection against severe COVID-19 that may have decreased over time. We anticipate the updated vaccines will be better at fighting currently circulating variants.
Everyone aged 5 years and older should get 1 dose of an updated COVID-19 vaccine to protect against serious illness from COVID-19.
Children aged 6 months to 4 years old need multiple doses of COVID-19 vaccines to be up to date, inclining at least 1 dose of updated COVID vaccine.
People who are moderately or severely immunocompromised may get additional doses of updated COVID-19 vaccine.
COVID-19 vaccine recommendations will be updated as needed.
