Information about Variants:
Viruses constantly change through mutation and sometimes these mutations result in a new variant of the virus. Some variants emerge and disappear while others persist. New variants will continue to emerge. CDC and other public health organizations monitor all variants of the virus that causes COVID-19 in the United States and globally.
COVID-19 Vaccinations, What You Need to Know Moving Forward:
- New variants of the virus are expected to occur.
- Slowing the spread of the virus, by protecting yourself and others, can help slow the emergence of new variants.
- The Omicron variant causes more infections and spreads faster than the original SARS-CoV-2 strain of the virus that causes COVID-19.
- CDC is working with state and local public health officials to monitor the spread of all variants, including Omicron.
- Getting COVID-19 Vaccinations reduces your risk of severe illness, hospitalization and death from COVID-19.
- Staying up to date on your COVID-19 vaccines, which includes getting a booster when eligible, further improves your protection.

Tens of thousands of volunteers ages 5-17 were involved in clinical trials for the vaccines. The clinical trials showed that the COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective before they got FDA emergency use authorization.
The FDA has given the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine emergency authorization to use in children ages 5 through 15 years old and full approval to use in people ages 16 years and older. Learn more about the process of developing, authorizing, and approving COVID-19 vaccines. The vaccines continue to be monitored very closely.
COVID-19 booster shots are the same ingredients (formulation) as the current COVID-19 vaccines. However, in the case of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine booster shot, the dose is half of the amount of the vaccine people get for their primary series.
