There are currently three vaccines that have been approved for emergency use by the US government—Pfizer/BioTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson. Depending on what region of the country you live in will determine which brand will be available to you.
If you are considering receiving the vaccine, it is advised that you look around for a distribution center and make an appointment. Many of the centers that are administering the vaccine do require patients to have an appointment ahead of time.
