Things to consider before scheduling an appointment:

If you are feeling ill, please defer your appointment until you have recovered. Guidelines recommend against receiving another vaccine within two weeks (before or after) a COVID-19 vaccine, to avoid potentially compromising efficacy of either. Take note of any recent vaccines and plan your appointment accordingly.

Vaccine Form:

All individuals receiving the COVID-19 vaccine must complete the New York State COVID-19 Vaccine Form for the first dose, pursuant to Executive Order 202.86, and attest that they are eligible to be vaccinated Practices, providers, and entities must confirm adherence to this requirement at the time of vaccine administration.

Vaccine Safety:

Post-vaccination monitoring is an essential part of the COVID-19 vaccination program. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is promoting and encouraging all those being vaccinated to participate in V-Safe, a smart-phone based application that will allow those vaccinated to enter their symptoms in the days after vaccination using text messaging. V-Safe also provides reminders for the second dose and telephone follow up for anyone who reports medically significant adverse events. V-Safe materials can be found at http://www.cdc.gov/vsafe, including a V-Safe information sheet. Please print out the information sheet and hand to each person vaccinated. You must report any adverse events that occur after vaccination to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) at info@VAERS.org or by calling 1-800-822-7967.

How are the vaccines administered?

Moderna & Pfizer require a two-dose sequence to confer maximum immunity. It is administered into the deltoid muscle (the upper outer portion of your arm, same location as a flu shot).

The interval between doses for the Pfizer vaccine is 21 days, and 28 days for the Moderna vaccine.

The second dose must be administered as closely as possible to the recommended interval, and there is very little room for deviating from that schedule. Please plan accordingly.

The vaccines are not interchangeable. Both doses must be of the same type. We highly recommend visiting the same provider for both doses to avoid the chance of a mixup and to aid accounting.

After receiving your first dose, you will receive a vaccination card specifying which vaccine was administered, where, and when. Bring this card with you to your second appointment.

Johnson & Johnson is a one-dose vaccine. It is administered into the deltoid muscle (the upper outer portion of your arm, same location as a flu shot).

How much does vaccination cost?

At this time, all vaccines being administered have been obtained and paid for by the Federal government. There is no cost to you. Flu and Pneumonia vaccines are typically covered by all insurances. The shingles vaccines may have a copay, depending on your insurance.
