There are three COVID-19 vaccinations that the FDA has granted emergency authorization. These include the Pfizer vaccine, the Moderna vaccine and the Johnson and Johnson vaccine. All three of these vaccines are been shown to have high efficacy in clinical trials in preventing infections, hospitalizations, and deaths. When offered a vaccine, you can take any of these three vaccines.
Please note that after you are vaccinated, you still need to follow all of the social distancing recommendations by the CDC. This includes wearing a mask when with individuals who live outside of your home. You should also practice good hand hygiene.
