About the new COVID vaccine

The new COVID-19 vaccine is making its way to doctors' offices and pharmacies. Clinics listed below should also have the new vaccine soon; please check their websites for updates. Studies show the vaccines, formulated to target currently circulating variants, induce antibodies against a wide variety of COVID-19 viral variants and are expected to improve protection against serious consequences of COVID-19 infection, including hospitalization and death.

Everyone ages six months or older should receive the updated vaccine as soon as possible, as long as it's been at least eight weeks since your most recent dose of any COVID-19 vaccine.

The shots will be available at no cost to most Americans until December 2024 through private insurers. Adults 18 years and older without health insurance and adults whose health insurance does not cover all COVID-19 vaccine costs can get updated COVID-19 vaccines at no cost through the Bridge Access Program. You can get no-cost COVID-19 vaccines at health care providers, federally supported health centers, and retail pharmacy chains participating in the Bridge Access Program. Visit to find participating providers.
