COVID-19 vaccines

People who have not received a COVID-19 vaccine yet who are age 6 years+ now only need a single COVID-19 bivalent dose.

For those age 6-65 years (who are not immunocompromised) who have already received a bivalent mRNA dose, vaccination is complete.

Individuals aged 6 years and older who have already received an updated mRNA vaccine don’t need to take any action unless they are 65 years or older or immunocompromised.

Treatments for COVID-19

What treatments are available?

There are several antiviral and antibody treatments available that can reduce your chances of being hospitalized or dying from COVID-19, especially if you have underlying health conditions that may make you more vulnerable. Treatment must be started within days after you first develop symptoms to be effective. COVID-19 treatments are available through your provider and cost shares may apply.

Visit COVID-19 Treatments and Medications on the CDC site for more information about the treatments currently available.

How do I get treatment?

Your first step in getting treatment for COVID-19 is to get tested. You can use an at-home test or local testing site, a pharmacy, or your provider’s office. Since some treatments might have side effects or interact with other medications you are taking, it’s important to talk with your provider or pharmacist to make sure the medication being used is right for you.

If you don’t have a regular provider, you can find a pharmacy-based Test to Treat location. The Test to Treat locator can help you find a location near you.

According to the CDC, it is safe to get both your COVID-19 vaccine and the flu vaccine at the same time.
