Domestic workers are essential workers, before and during the Coronavirus pandemic. Now that there is a vaccine available, get all the information you need here. To help answer your questions about the COVID vaccine, check out resources below from trusted sources like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). You’ll find info about vaccine safety, how it works, and how to find local/state specific information on who is eligible to receive the vaccine and how you can sign up.
COVID-19 Vaccine Safety
Who is Eligible to Get the Vaccine?
When the U.S. supply of COVID-19 vaccine was limited, the CDC provided recommendations to federal, state, and local governments about who should be vaccinated first. As of May 12, 2021, everyone in the United States aged 12 years and older is eligible to receive the COVID vaccine. To find vaccination locations where you live and how to sign up, go to www.vaccines.gov.
Regardless of where you live, immigration status will NOT affect vaccine distribution, and people who are undocumented are able to receive the vaccine. Receiving the COVID-19 vaccine will not impact anyone’s immigration application, and information about people who get the vaccine will not be shared with immigration authorities.
The vaccine is provided at no cost for everyone. You will not be charged, even if you do not have health insurance. If you have insurance, your insurance may be billed by the vaccination provider.
