The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorized emergency use of the Pfizer and Moderna Vaccines to prevent COVID-19 in individuals ages 6 months and older.

Please read the Fact Sheets for Recipients and Caregivers that are posted on the US FDA website to learn more about risks, benefits, and side effects of the Pfizer vaccine and the Moderna vaccine. There are different fact sheets for different age groups.
