What types of COVID-19 vaccine(s) are available? Will I get to choose?

There are multiple COVID-19 vaccine candidates. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) must authorize any vaccine before it will be available to Coloradans. The pharmaceutical companies Pfizer and Moderna applied for authorization through an Emergency Use Authorization. The FDA authorized the Pfizer vaccine on December 11 and the Moderna vaccine on December 18. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are the first to be distributed in the state. Other companies are still going through the clinical research process. Pfizer and Moderna report that both vaccines are around 95% effective. 

CDC provides detailed profiles for each available vaccine on their Different COVID-19 Vaccines page.
