COVID-19 Vaccines

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

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 those ages 5 years and older should get all primary series doses, and updated COVID-19 boosters if eligible. For people ages 12 years and older, the only authorized mRNA booster is the updated (bivalent) booster. People ages 12 years and older can no longer get the original (monovalent) mRNA 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.
