COVID-19 Vaccine General Information
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the Pfizer vaccine and the Moderna vaccine. Other COVID-19 vaccines that are in Phase II or III trials can be found through this COVID-19 vaccine tracker. The FDA will only give a COVID-19 vaccine an EUA if the current phase III trial data shows the vaccine is safe and has more benefits than risks.

Right now, there is not enough vaccine supply for everyone in Wisconsin. Vaccinators across the state are following vaccine prioritization guidelines from the federal Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the Wisconsin State Disaster Medical Advisory Committee (SDMAC). It will likely take many months before the vaccine is available to the general public.

Please remember, while vaccination is a very exciting step to help limit the spread of COVID-19, it is just one tool in our toolbox. Individuals should continue to maintain physical distance, wear their masks, and wash their hands.
