Currently, there are two authorized and recommended vaccines to prevent COVID-19 which are being distributed throughout Pennsylvania, including Westmoreland County. (More information on the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines can be found below)
Both vaccines require two doses for full effectiveness - a second shot is given three weeks after your first shot to get the most protection the vaccine has to offer against COVID-19.
Additional vaccines are in development.
The Moderna vaccine is only approved for individuals 18 and older.
