OVERVIEW
  • The following vaccines have been authorized by the FDA through Emergency Use Authorizations (EUAs): Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Janssen (Johnson & Johnson). None of these vaccines use live COVID-19 viruses, so they cannot give the recipient COVID-19.  Detailed information about each of these vaccines can be found on the CDC’s web site.

  • The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is given in two shots administered three (3) weeks apart.  The Moderna vaccine is also given in two shots administered one (1) month apart.  The Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine only requires one shot.

    For those vaccinations requiring 2 shots, it is recommended to receive it on or as near to the requested time interval as possible; however, you have up to six (6) weeks after your first shot to receive your second shot.

  • Due to federal funding, the vaccine itself will be given at no cost with to you.  The fee for administering the vaccine will either be covered by your insurance or through federal programs for the uninsured.

ELIGIBILITY
  • The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is authorized for ages 12 and older. The Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) and Moderna vaccines are both authorized for ages 18 and older. These manufacturers are also performing clinical trials to determine if their vaccines can be given to children as young as 6 months old.

    While vaccine supply was limited earlier this year, as of April 19, 2021, all Americans aged 12 years and older are currently eligible to be vaccinated.

TREATMENT
  • The most common side effect is pain and swelling at the shot site, along with a slight fever, fatigue, and chills. You may have more effects after the second dose of a two-dose vaccination than for the first. Note that these reactions are normal and indicate that your immune system is building up the antibodies that it needs to protect you against COVID-19!  For more information about the common vaccination side effects and how to manage them, see this flyer.
