Key takeaways

Mayo Clinic experts agree: You should get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as it’s available to you. COVID-19 cases are still widespread and shifting, and the vaccines that we’re recommending have been approved for safe use.

Mayo Clinic is following vaccine eligibility criteria as directed by state health departments, which will continue to allocate all vaccine supplies.

Vaccine distribution is generally available to anyone over age 12 in the United States, and becoming available in many states on an emergency use basis to children ages 5 through 11, based on the recommendation from the FDA.
