What You Need to Know about the U.S. COVID-19 Vaccination Program:
The goal is for everyone to be able to easily get vaccinated against COVID-19 as soon as large enough quantities are available. Because the current supply of COVID-19 vaccine in the United States is limited, CDC recommends that initial supplies of COVID-19 vaccine be offered to healthcare personnel and long-term care facility residents. Once vaccine is widely available, the plan is to have several thousand vaccination providers offering COVID-19 vaccines in doctors’ offices, retail pharmacies, hospitals, and federally qualified health centers. Vaccine doses purchased with U.S. taxpayer dollars will be given to the American people at no cost. You will need 2 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. A second shot after your first shot is needed to get the most protection the vaccine has to offer.
