The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the
Moderna COVID-19 vaccines for everyone aged 6 months and older and the
Novavax COVID-19 vaccine for individuals aged 12 and older, including pregnant women and
people with compromised immune systems.
The total number of vaccine doses a person gets and the recommended timing of shots depend on how old the person is and what brand of vaccine they are getting. See the current COVID-19 vaccine recommendations from the CDC for more information. Your health care provider will be able to tell you what shots you should get and when you should get them.

The primary series of the vaccine, followed by booster doses, protects against severe COVID-19 illness, hospitalization, and death by triggering your body to make antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19 illness. Vaccine immunity is long lasting and safe. SARS-CoV-2 infection also triggers your body to make antibodies against re-infection, but that natural immunity is temporary (about 90 days) and comes with the risk of severe illness, hospitalization, and death.
