Get vaccinated. Protect yourself. Protect your community.
With the FDA’s full approval of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for individuals 16 or older, there’s never been a better time to get vaccinated.
Full FDA approval means the public can be confident that the Pfizer vaccine meets the high standards for safety, effectiveness, and manufacturing quality the FDA requires of an approved product. COVID-19 vaccines are the best way to prevent severe illness, hospitalizations, and death.
Unvaccinated people are strongly encouraged to get the vaccine and continue masking until they are fully vaccinated. With the Delta variant, this is more urgent than ever.
All West Virginians 12 years of age and older are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Those 65 years of age and older will continue to be prioritized. The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources COVID-19 Vaccine website offers more information about free vaccination clinics being hosted across the state, as well as ways to find vaccines at local pharmacies.
