If you feel any of the symptoms associated with Coronavirus, you should:
Watch out for emergency warning signs for COVID-19. These signs include difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, confusion or sleepiness, or bluish lips or face. If you develop these, get medical attention immediately.
Coronavirus spreads mainly from person to person, typically through respiratory droplets expelled from coughing, sneezing or talking. It is possible, but rarer, to get coronavirus from touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching your own mouth, nose or eyes.
There is currently no cure for COVID-19. There are, however, two coronavirus vaccines approved by the FDA that will help protect you from getting the virus. Additionally, the anti-viral medication remdesivir (Veklury) is approved for COVID-19 treatment in hospitalized patients.
The FDA approved vaccines for COVID-19 are based on mRNA technology, and therefore contain synthetic mRNA designed to encode the instructions for a specific protein produced by the coronavirus. In addition these vaccines contain some fatty acids, some salts, and some sugar which together create particles which stabilize the mRNA until it is administered.

The CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices has prioritized the limited supply of currently approved vaccines, as follows:
The precise timeline for these stages is currently unknown, as this depends on the manufacturing rate and availability of vaccines.
