Getting the COVID-19 vaccine

CVS Pharmacy follows the most up-to-date federal guidance as it relates to COVID-19 vaccine administration. We offer either the updated Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 mRNA vaccines for all doses administered to eligible individuals, depending on location, as well as the updated Novavax protein-based COVID-19 vaccine to eligible individuals.

The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) recommends updated COVID-19 vaccination for everyone age 6 months or older to better protect you and your loved ones. Specific recommendations may vary by age, previous vaccination history or whether you are moderately or severely immunocompromised. Please talk to your pharmacist or provider or use the digital scheduler at CVS.com® and the CVS Pharmacy app to help determine what’s best for you.

Houston Medical, recognized as a top 20 U.S. hospital in a 2022 to 2023 list by U.S. News & World Report, reported why the new COVID-19 vaccine formulations are a little different from previous boosters. According to Houston Medical, these updated formulations don’t just “boost” protection against particular versions of the COVID-19 virus. Because these new formulations update patient immune systems to recognize the strains of the virus they’re most likely to encounter, they’re called vaccines instead of boosters.

An eligible individual should receive an age-appropriate vaccination. At this time, there is no preference given for one formulation (Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech) over another. If choosing the protein-based updated Novavax COVID-19 vaccine, individuals not previously vaccinated with any COVID-19 vaccine should receive two doses, administered at least three weeks apart. Patients who are immunocompromised may need additional doses. Please talk to your pharmacist or provider, or use the digital scheduler at CVS.com® and in the CVS Pharmacy® app, to help determine what’s best for you.

As part of the scheduling process on CVS.com, patients are asked to attest that all information provided during appointment setup is truthful and accurate. Some states also require the collection of IDs to verify eligibility. We reserve the right to cancel appointments if it’s determined that information provided for establishing eligibility is not truthful.

The bivalent COVID-19 vaccine and previous authorized COVID-19 formulations are no longer authorized for use. The CDC now recommends that most individuals receive a single dose of the updated FDA (Food and Drug Administration) authorized vaccine, regardless of previous vaccination status.

Scheduling a COVID-19 vaccine appointment

Yes. Appointments may be scheduled at CVS.com or the CVS Pharmacy app. CVS Pharmacy also accepts walk-ins, seven days a week, including during evening and weekend hours.

Yes. Providers may simultaneously administer COVID-19 and flu vaccines.

Currently, CVS Pharmacy locations offering the COVID-19 vaccine to eligible populations have either the Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. All CVS Pharmacy locations also offer the updated Novavax protein-based COVID-19 vaccine. Patients can see which CVS Pharmacy location has which vaccine and appointment availability on CVS.com before scheduling. Patients who are interested in receiving a non-mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Novavax) should speak with the pharmacist. Novavax is available at all CVS Pharmacy locations subject to local availability.

Where to get the COVID-19 vaccine

CVS.com and the CVS Pharmacy app will be updated to reflect active vaccinating CVS Pharmacy locations.

Yes. Businesses, senior-living facilities, schools, municipalities and other groups may schedule an on-site COVID-19 vaccination clinic staffed by certified CVS Pharmacy immunizers to help make vaccines convenient and accessible to employees, staff, residents and students. On-site COVID-19 vaccination clinics are available in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C. Learn about or schedule a COVID-19 vaccination clinic.

COVID-19 vaccine safety

COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. To date, hundreds of millions of people have safely received a COVID-19 vaccine under the most intense safety monitoring in U.S. history.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, you may have some side effects following administration of a COVID-19 vaccine. Common side effects may include pain and/or tenderness of the arm where you got the shot, headache, fever, chills and/or fatigue.

CVS Health® immunizers include trained pharmacists, pharmacy interns and pharmacy technicians, as well as other qualified health care professionals, depending on state-specific regulations. All CVS Health immunizers are certified according to company requirements, are trained in the administration of immunizations and hold an active CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) certification.

Per guidancefrom the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, patients age 5 or older do not have to match the COVID-19 vaccine dose they receive to the brand they received during their primary series or any previous dose(s). For children ages 6 months through 4 years, vaccination with the same COVID-19 vaccine brand is recommended.

Yes. CVS Pharmacy® and MinuteClinic®locationsoffer COVID-19 vaccines that theCenters for Disease Control and Prevention recommends. People ages 65 years and older should receive therecommended number of dose(s) of updated (2023–2024 Formula) mRNA or Novavax vaccine.

In addition, as we get older, our immune systems tend to weaken over time, putting us at higher risk for certain infections. All adults ages 65 and older should make sure they’re up to date on these vaccines, too:

  • Flu vaccine
  • Pneumococcal vaccine
  • Shingles vaccine (zoster)
  • Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria andpertussis, also called whooping cough) or Td (tetanus and diphtheria)

You may need other vaccines based on your age or other factors, too. Talk with your doctor to learn which vaccines are recommended for you. This may include:

  • RSV (respiratory syncytial virus)— adults aged 60 years or older should talk to their health care provider about getting a single dose of RSV vaccine
