Frequently Asked Questions

Depending upon vaccine availability, you will receive the Moderna, Pfizer vaccine or Johnson & Johnson vaccine.  For ages 12-17, the only authorized vaccine is the Pfizer vaccine. The online scheduler will show which vaccine we expect to be using. For example: Moderna (Pfizer for ages 12-17).

The Pfizer second dose should be received 21 days after the first dose.

The Moderna second dose should be received 28 days after the first dose.  We will schedule the second dose during your first appointment, so check your availability for the same day four weeks later before signing up for the first dose.

The Johnson & Johnson vaccine does not require a second dose.

Please bring photo id or Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, or List B identity document in addition to insurance information if you have insurance. The vaccine is administered in the upper arm, so short sleeves are advised.  COVID-19 vaccinations are available regardless of immigration status. If you are under the age of 18, you need to be accompanied by your parent or guardian.

Vaccine providers will be able to charge an administration fee for giving the shot to someone. Providers can get this fee reimbursed by the patient’s public or private insurance company or, for uninsured patients, by the federal Health Resources & Services Administration’s Provider Relief Fund.

Register for V-Safe
What is v-safe?

V-safe is a smartphone-based tool that uses text messaging and web surveys to provide personalized health check-ins after you receive a COVID-19 vaccination. Through v-safe, you can quickly tell CDC if you have any side effects after getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Depending on your answers, someone from CDC may call to check on you. And v-safe will remind you to get your second COVID-19 vaccine dose if you need one.

Your participation in CDC’s v-safe makes a difference—it helps keep COVID-19 vaccines safe.
