The Path to Defeating COVID‑19
As the trusted champion for lung health, the American Lung Association is focused on slowing the spread and defeating COVID-19. To further protect the overall population and those most vulnerable, we need a sufficiently high proportion of the population to get vaccinated to stop coronavirus transmission. The introduction of COVID-19 vaccines gives us hope.
We encourage everyone to consider getting a vaccine once one is available to them.
COVID-19 Vaccine Progress to Date in the U.S.

The best COVID-19 vaccine is the first one that is available to you. You're considered "fully vaccinated" two weeks after your final shot.
