New Guidelines

As of March 2024, the CDC guidelines for vaccinations and boosters are as follows:

  • COVID-19 vaccination is recommended for everyone ages 6 months and older in the United States for the prevention of COVID-19.
  • There is no preferential recommendation for the use of any one COVID-19 vaccine over another when more than one recommended and age-appropriate vaccine is available.
  • Vaccination schedules can be found in Table 1 for people who are not moderately or severely immunocompromised and in Table 2 for people who are moderately or severely immunocompromised. See Appendix A for recommendations for people who received COVID-19 vaccine outside the United States.

To schedule your vaccination or a booster shot, find a COVID-19 vaccine site near you.
