Is it safe to get the COVID-19 vaccine?

Both FDA-authorized vaccines have been developed using decades of research and studied in large-scale clinical trials. They are held to the same safety and effectiveness standards as all other vaccines. Individuals are monitored after receiving the vaccine to further ensure safety. The CDC has recommended special considerations for some individuals with underlying conditions. You will fill out the questioner provided to you at the time of your visit.

What will it cost to get the COVID-19 vaccine?

Individuals will not be charged for the vaccine or its administration. The federal government will pay for the cost of the vaccine. Vaccine providers will be reimbursed for administering the vaccine by the patient’s insurance or by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) program for uninsured patients.

What should I expect on the day of my first dose vaccine visit?

When you get vaccinated, you will receive a fact sheet about the COVID-19 vaccine, as well as information about possible side effects or allergic reactions. Immediately after, you will be monitored on-site for 15-minutes. If you do not experience any reactions that warrant further medical assistance, you will be allowed to leave. Both FDA-authorized vaccines require two doses for 94% effectiveness. If you make your dose 1 appointment at our clinic, we will also schedule your second dose appointment. It is important that dose 1 & 2 are from the same vaccine. If you get both doses at our clinic, we will ensure this is the case; however, you do not have to get your second dose at at the same clinic.

We will continue to update this page when online scheduling is available.

Please note: you MUST have an appointment to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

What should I expect on the day of my second dose vaccine visit?

Your dose 2 visit will follow the same procedure as your dose 1 visit, but you will additionally receive proof of vaccination once your visit is complete.
