COVID-19 vaccines are an important step in protecting your health and your loved ones, and we encourage you to talk to your doctor about the right time to get your vaccine. We are committed to providing helpful vaccine information and resources to support you, including $0 cost-share on COVID-19 vaccinations through the national public health emergency period.
FDA-authorized and FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccines are safe and help prevent serious illness from COVID-19.
The safety of vaccines is a top priority, and millions of people have already been safely vaccinated. All FDA-authorized and FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective at preventing serious illness, including hospitalization and death, from COVID-19, according to the CDC. They are key to slowing the pandemic. The U.S. vaccine safety system makes sure all vaccines go through an extensive process to confirm levels of safety. The recently FDA-authorized COVID-19 vaccines went through this process. Even after emergency use authorization, the FDA continues to review clinical data about the vaccines.
Approval is granted once the FDA determines the vaccine to be safe and effective at preventing serious illness from COVID-19. The FDA goes through a detailed review of clinical data and information, as submitted in the Biologics License Application (BLA).
The CDC website has additional COVID-19 vaccine safety information.
We've gathered links to public resources to help you stay informed. Vaccine availability may vary by location, day and time, so we encourage you to check back. The CDC remains the best resource on COVID-19 vaccines.

You will have $0 cost-share (copayments, deductibles or co-insurance) on your FDA-authorized or FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccination as noted below, no matter where you get the vaccine1 and including when 2 doses are required, as well as when a third dose is needed and booster shots, as outlined below.
For those who are moderately to severely immunocompromised as defined by the CDC, a third COVID-19 vaccination dose is covered at $0 cost-share.
If a COVID-19 vaccine is received during a regular doctor’s visit where you talk about other health needs, you may have a cost-share for the office visit, according to your benefits plan. This means you may be responsible for a copay, coinsurance or deductible. The COVID-19 vaccination will have $0 cost-share through the national public health emergency period.
Be on alert for fraud. While you may be interested in sharing the news of your vaccination, be sure not to post a picture of your CDC vaccination card on the internet or via social media. There may be people who try to use your information as their own.
1 Always follow vaccination instructions from the manufacturer.
Follow vaccination instructions from the manufacturer. The current FDA-authorized and FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccines may not be appropriate for everyone. There are special considerations for people with certain conditions, of different ages, and who have had treatments such as monoclonal antibody therapy and convalescent plasma.
