Covid- 19 Updates

Delta Variant

The Delta Variant causes more infections and spreads faster than early forms of the COVID-19 virus. It might cause more severe illness than previous strains in unvaccinated people.

  • Vaccines continue to be highly effective at preventing hospitalization and death, including against this variant.
  • Fully vaccinated people with breakthrough infections from this variant appear to be infectious for a shorter period.
  • Get vaccinated and wear masks indoors in public spaces to reduce the spread of this variant.

Authorized and Recommended Vaccines

Currently, three vaccines are authorized and recommended in the United States to prevent COVID-19:

  • Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is recommended for people 12 years and older.
  • Moderna vaccine
    is recommended for people aged 18 years and older.
  • J&J/Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine is recommended for people 18 years and older.

Find vaccines near you!

You can get most recommended vaccines at your doctor’s office, and many recommended vaccines are also available at local pharmacies, health centers, health departments, and travel clinics. Lastly, you can text your zip code to 438829 or
call 1-800-232-0233 (cdc.gov, 2021).
