Where Can I Get Vaccinated? | COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution| COVID-19 Vaccine Plan

All Pennsylvanians ages 6 months and older are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Those aged 6 months to 18 years require a parental consent. Learn more about the pediatric vaccine.

CDC recommends that people ages 5 years and older receive one updated (bivalent) booster if it has been at least 2 months since their last COVID-19 vaccine dose, whether that was:

  • Their final primary series dose, or
  • An original (monovalent) booster

People who have gotten more than one original (monovalent) booster are also recommended to get an updated (bivalent) booster. Use this tool to determine when or if you (or your child) can get one or more COVID-19 boosters.

People who are moderately or severely immunocompromised have different recommendations for COVID-19 vaccines, including boosters.
