COVID-19 and Flu viruses change to fool your immune system.

That’s why vaccines are updated to protect you.

Stay up to date with recommended vaccines this fall.


What we
stand for

We’ve made real progress in the fight against COVID-19, but the virus and new variants remain a threat and still pose risks. Vaccines and antiviral treatments played a tremendous role in helping to end the pandemic – reducing illness and disruptions to daily life and preventing millions of deaths. Today, vaccines continue to offer our best protection against illness, especially severe illness, while treatments reduce severity of symptoms among those who have been infected.

Building confidence in the safety and effectiveness of recommended vaccines and the science behind the vaccine approval process remains key to encourage vaccination across a variety of infectious respiratory diseases and help address persistent health inequities. 

Gold-Standard Regulatory Review Process

For decades, vaccine development in the U.S. has followed a gold-standard review process that includes rigorous research, multi-stage clinical trials, robust regulatory review and approvals, and ongoing safety monitoring once a vaccine becomes approved and recommended. The COVID-19 vaccines continue to receive the most intense safety monitoring in U.S. history.

A Focus on Community

Getting vaccinated is the best way to avoid serious illness from COVID-19 and other infectious respiratory diseases. When you get vaccinated, you’re not only protecting yourself, but you’re also helping to protect your family and your community. Treatment options are also available to help reduce the severity of symptoms and the risk of hospitalization and death among people who are more vulnerable to serious illness.

Equitable Access to Vaccines and Treatments

There are a range of barriers that impact access to healthcare, including vaccines and treatments. To help ensure equitable access to vaccines and treatments, we must also ensure equitable access to information by encouraging conversation with trusted voices and organizations, answering questions, and addressing misinformation at every stage of the process.

Champions for Vaccine Education, Equity and Progress (CVEEP) is convened by the Alliance for Aging Research, HealthyWomen, and the National Center and Caucus on Black Aging and is made up of more than 250 leading organizations representing a variety of communities that face challenges from infectious respiratory illness, particularly diverse communities that have been most harmed by the effects of respiratory illness.

As COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses continue to threaten the health and well-being of our communities, CVEEP is committed to providing resources, convening essential discussions, and raising awareness about the need for vaccination against respiratory diseases across the lifespan and the importance of treatments to help protect against the most severe effects of COVID-19.
