About the COVID-19 Vaccines

In December 2020, the Unites States mass vaccination program became an crucial part of the effort to prevent people from becoming seriously ill or dying from COVID-19. There are currently three COVID-19 vaccines authorized for use in the United States and everyone who is 12 and older is encouraged to get vaccinated.
