    Vaccine Information

    Currently, there is no FDA-approved or authorized vaccine for the prevention of COVID-19 available in the the United States. However, four medications currently are under development and conducting large-scale (Phase 3) clinical trials. All but one require two shots to be effective, the other one dose. A partnership of government agencies and private groups will ensure their safety and effectiveness in order to make them available as quickly as possible.

    Prioritization.

    Supplies of COVID-19 vaccines initially will limited and first priority will be given to those most vulnerable (people 65 years of age or older, residents of long-term care facilities, and people with high-risk conditions) and health care workers, but as stockpiles grow inoculations will be available to all Pima County residents.

    Safety First

    The United States's longstanding vaccine safety system ensures that vaccines are as safe as possible. As new information and science become available, the system is updated and improved.

    As part of these vaccine safety efforts, scientists ensure the safety of vaccines by conducting different types of studies:
    • Vaccine manufacturers conduct clinical trials as part of the development, testing, and approval process before any medication goes on the market. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) uses the information from clinical trials to determine whether a vaccine is safe, effective, and ready to be licensed for use.
    • Safety studies also go on after a vaccine is approved and in use as part of a continuous monitoring process. This research often looks at populations who might be underrepresented in clinical trials. Importantly, these studies can look for rare adverse events.
