Staying up to date with recommended vaccinations is the best way to protect yourself from COVID-19. The vaccines available in the United States effectively protect people from becoming seriously ill, being hospitalized, and dying.
Authorized COVID-19 Vaccines in the United States:
- Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen (J&J/Janssen)
Updated and Original COVID-19 Vaccines
- Updated vaccines are sometimes called “bivalent” vaccines. The updated vaccines protect against both the original virus that causes COVID-19 and the Omicron variant BA.4 and BA.5. Both Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna have developed the updated COVID-19 vaccines.
- Original vaccines are sometimes called “monovalent” vaccines. The original vaccines were designed to protect against the original virus.
- As of April 18, 2023, the original Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines are no longer authorized for use.
- As of May 6, 2023, J&J/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine has expired and is no longer available for use.
Getting Vaccinated If You Had COVID-19 Recently
If you recently had COVID-19, you may consider delaying your next dose by 3 months from when your symptoms started or from your first positive test.
The following factors could be reasons to get a vaccine sooner than later:
- Personal risk of disease
- Risk of disease in a loved one
- COVID-19 hospital admission levels
