what you need to know

Benefits
  • Vaccination will help you build protection against COVID-19 and help prevent you from becoming sick and potentially spreading the virus to others. Since there is no cure for COVID-19, prevention of infection is the primary way to reduce the spread of illness.
  • Based on what we know about vaccines for other diseases, experts believe that getting a COVID-19 vaccine may help keep you from getting seriously ill even if you do get COVID-19.
  • Getting vaccinated yourself may also protect people around you, particularly people at increased risk.
Cost
  • There will be no cost to you. Vaccine doses purchased with U.S. taxpayer dollars will be given to the American people at no cost. 
  • Vaccination providers may be able to charge administration fees for giving the shot. Vaccination providers can get this fee reimbursed by the patient’s public or private insurance company or, for uninsured patients, by the Health Resources and Services Administration’s Provider Relief Fund.
