The FDA has granted Emergency Use Authorization for three COVID-19 vaccines developed by Johnson & Johnson (Janssen), Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna. These vaccines are currently available to select populations depending on the state and local eligibility requirements. Over the next several months, more people will become eligible for the vaccine through a phased priority approach. COVID-19 vaccines will be available to the general population as soon as large quantities are made available. Vaccines may be available to the general public sometime in spring 2021.
According to the CDC and FDA, the side effects resolve within a few days: pain at injection site, fatigue, headache, muscle pain, chills, joint pain, fever, injection site swelling, injection site redness, nausea, vomiting, malaise, swollen lymph nodes.
Vaccines have played an important role in protecting the health and safety of communities and nations throughout history. As a critical resource for care in our communities, Shothealth will remain focused on providing safe and convenient access to COVID-19 vaccines. Learn how the federal government is ensuring the safety of COVID-19 vaccines.
At this time, health officials do not fully understand how COVID-19 vaccines will affect people with allergies. More data is needed. Please refer to the Prescribing Information of each vaccine for more information. Do not administer the COVID-19 Vaccine to individuals with a known history of a severe allergic reaction (e.g., anaphylaxis) to any component of the COVID-19 vaccine.
There are currently three types of COVID-19 vaccines that are either under development, undergoing clinical trials or available for Emergency Use Authorization in the United States: mRNA, protein subunit and vector. Each uses different technologies that recognize and protect people from COVID-19. The CDC provides further information here.
Both the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines require two shots to be as effective as possible. The Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine requires just one shot.
Individuals who receive the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine should receive the second dose 21 days after receiving the first dose. Those receiving the Moderna vaccine should receive the second dose 28 days after the first dose. The Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine does not require a second shot.
While vaccines reduce the chances of getting sick when a vaccinated individual is exposed to the virus, it is not yet known if the vaccines can prevent a vaccinated person from spreading the virus to other people. More data is needed to determine how COVID-19 vaccines impact spread in communities. Preventive measures such as wearing a mask, social distancing and washing hands are all essential in decreasing the spread of the virus.
It is not yet known how long COVID-19 vaccines will provide protection. More data is needed.
Scientists are working to learn more about how easily the COVID-19 variants might spread, whether they could cause more severe illness, and whether currently authorized vaccines will protect people against them. At this time, there is no evidence that these variants cause more severe illness or increased risk of death.
It is not yet known how much protection one gets from the first dose of either the Pfizer-BioNTech or the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. A second dose is recommended for maximum efficacy. The Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) COVID-19 vaccine provides maximum protection 28 days following a single shot.
Individuals should not get the COVID-19 vaccine if they have had a severe allergic reaction after receiving a previous dose of the vaccine or if they have had a severe allergic reaction to any of the ingredients in the vaccine. It's important to inform your healthcare provider of all medical conditions you have and any medications you are taking. If you have any concerns getting a COVID-19 vaccine, please contact your healthcare provider.
The first COVID-19 vaccines to become available are not yet approved for use in young children. The clinical trials conducted to date by Pfizer tested its vaccine’s safety and efficacy in patients 16 years of age and older. Moderna and Janssen (Johnson & Johnson)’s vaccines were tested in patients 18 years of age and older. Researchers are conducting additional studies on how the vaccines affect younger children. We are monitoring those trials and will follow the guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regarding the age of individuals eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccines.
On March 8, 2021, the CDC issued its first set of recommendations on activities that people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can safely resume. View the recommendations.
On the day of your appointment, please bring your ID, proof of vaccine eligibility if applicable (e.g. your work ID), and insurance card (red, white, and blue card if over 65) if you have one. Please plan to stay on site for at least 15 minutes after your shot while we monitor you for allergic reaction.
Shothealth knows safety is of utmost importance to customers during the COVID-19 pandemic. In accordance with the CDC, we’re taking health and safety measures including physical distancing and personal protective equipment in our stores and off-site clinics. Shothealth will continue to meet or exceed CDC guidelines for immunizations to promote the health and wellbeing of our team members and customers.
It is not yet known if individuals who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 are capable of spreading the virus to others. People who have been fully vaccinated can now resume some activities, including visiting with other people who are fully vaccinated in indoor settings without wearing a mask or maintaining distancing. Those who are fully vaccinated can also visit indoors with people from one other household who are not vaccinated and who are at a low risk for severe illness from COVID-19. An individual is considered to be fully vaccinated two weeks following a second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine or two weeks following a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) COVID-19 vaccine.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services states that people without health insurance or whose insurance does not provide coverage of COVID-19 vaccines can get a COVID-19 vaccine at no cost with a health plan or government program coverage.
Patients will be able to see vaccine and appointment availability on our website before scheduling. Depending on which vaccine you receive, you will be prompted to schedule a second dose if needed.
The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) provides guidance to assist states as they prioritize vaccine distribution. The ACIP makes the recommendation that states can choose to follow or determine their own priorities for patient eligibility.
