COVID-19 Vaccinations Prioritized Populations: Those most at risk get it first.

A tested, safe and effective vaccine will be available to all who want it, but supplies will be limited at first. Independent state and federal public health advisory committees have determined that the best way to fight COVID-19 is to start first with vaccinations for those most at risk, reaching more people as the vaccine supply increases from January to June. Keep practicing the 3W’s— wear a mask, wait six feet apart, wash your hands—until everyone has a chance to vaccinate.

Phase 4: Everyone who wants a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccination.

For each COVID-19 vaccine authorized under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires that vaccine recipients or their caregivers are provided with certain vaccine-specific EUA information to help make an informed decision about vaccination. This is accomplished by providing a an EUA Fact Sheet for Recipients and Caregivers. The Fact Sheet is similar in purpose and content to vaccine information statements (VISs) for licensed vaccines but differs in that the EUA Fact Sheet is specific to each authorized COVID-19 vaccine, is developed by the manufacturer of the vaccine, and is authorized by the FDA.


COVID-19 Pfizer BioNTech Vaccine EUA Fact Sheet for Recipients

COVID-19 Moderna Vaccine EUA Fact Sheet for Recipients
