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. Please read more below about the COVID-19 vaccines and underlying conditions.
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 with more details for you to read, as well as information about the possible side effects or allergic reactions individuals may experience after the vaccine. 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 take your dose 1 appointment at our clinic, we will also schedule your second dose appointment for you. It is important that doses 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 the same clinic.
Please note: We do not offer walk-ins for COVID-19 Vaccinations. You must book or contact us to schedule an appointment.
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 receive proof of vaccination once your visit is complete.
