COVID-19 Vaccines

Vaccines are safe and effective and the best way to protect  you and those around you from serious illnesses.

All Pennsylvanians age 12 and older are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. On May 12, the department encouraged all COVID-19 vaccine providers to start vaccinating anyone age 12 and over with the Pfizer vaccine as recommended by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). 

Eligible for a booster? A booster shot of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is available for certain adults who were fully vaccinated by Pfizer at least six months ago, including:

  • people 65 years and older and residents in long-term care settings should receive a booster of the Pfizer vaccine,
  • people aged 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions should receive a booster of the Pfizer vaccine,
  • people aged 18–49 years with underlying medical conditions may receive a booster of the Pfizer vaccine, based on their individual benefits and risks, and
  • people aged 18-64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting may receive a booster shot of the Pfizer vaccine, based on their individual benefits and risks.
