There is no cure for COVID-19. The most effective way to prevent COVID-19 is by getting vaccinated.
If you or a loved one contracts COVID-19, there are some therapies and medicationsthat may be effective in treating COVID-19 symptoms. These therapies should not be considered an alternative to vaccination.
COVID-19 vaccines are being monitored for safety with the most comprehensive and intense safety monitoring program in U.S. history. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) monitors the safety of all COVID-19 vaccines after the vaccines are authorized or approved for use, including the risk of myocarditis in children ages 5 through 11 years. The benefits of COVID-19 vaccination outweigh the known and potential risks.
