Vaccines

COVID-19 vaccinations are important tools to help us get back to normal. Vaccines are effective at keeping us from getting COVID-19 and may help keep us from getting seriously ill even if someone does get COVID-19. As we all learn more about vaccines and the impact to the pandemic, we’re providing updated information and resources for you to use.

Keep in mind that the supply for COVID-19 vaccines is still limited. Healthcare personnel and residents of long-term care facilities are receiving the first doses of vaccines and other groups will follow, being prioritized for vaccination based on higher risks for infection. Eventually everyone will have the opportunity to get vaccinated.
