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.

Vaccine FAQs

Get answers to common and evolving questions around a COVID-19 vaccine.

What can I do once I'm fully vaccinated?

Once you're fully vaccinated (2 weeks after second dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or 2 weeks after a single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine) you can start doing some activities you had to stop because of the pandemic. The CDC has more guidance on how to be safe once you're fully vaccinated.

Is it safe for me to get a COVID-19 vaccine if I would like to have a baby one day?

Yes. Whether you are trying to get pregnant now, or want to get pregnant in the future, you may get a COVID-19 vaccine that protects you against severe illness from COVID-19. Misinformation is circulating and that can be confusing. There isn’t any evidence that any of the COVID-19 vaccines currently available cause problems with pregnancy or the development of the placenta. There has never been any evidence of fertility problems as a side effect for any vaccine, including COVID-19 vaccines.  Speak with your healthcare provider if you have concerns so they can help you address them with science-based information.

Will COVID-19 vaccines protect me against the emerging variants?

Yes. So far, studies suggest that the currently available vaccines work on variants circulating across the U.S. and globe. Many of the more common variants allow the virus to spread more easily, making it especially important to get vaccinated as soon as possible. If you are not yet fully vaccinated, protect yourself by following recommendations for wearing a face mask and maintaining social distance. And maintain good health practices such as washing your hands and avoiding unnecessary exposure to people who are sick.

You can view reports from the CDC showing which variants are currently most common in the United States.
