Vaccines work by teaching the body to create an immune response for a virus that is not present in the body. In clinical trials, the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines were shown to have greater than 94% efficacy in preventing symptoms and decreasing severe COVID-19 infection among study volunteers. The Pfizer vaccine requires a second dose after 21-42 days and the Moderna vaccine requires a second dose after 28-42 days. The Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine has been shown to have an 85% efficacy in preventing severe COVID-19 illness and does not require a second dose. Children ages 6 months and up are authorized to receive the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine and all adults 18+ can get any of the three available vaccines. Learn More.
