How much does the COVID-19 vaccine cost?

The cost of the actual vaccine is covered by the federal government.

Most insurance plans will cover the full cost of administering the vaccine, so you don’t pay anything out-of-pocket. If you have questions about coverage, please contact your insurance company.

If you don’t have insurance, you do not need to pay out-of-pocket for the vaccine.

Do I need insurance to get the COVID-19 vaccine?

No. You don’t need insurance to get the vaccine at no cost to you. However, if you are insured, please bring your insurance information. Most insurance plans cover the full cost of administering the vaccine, so you don’t pay anything out-of-pocket.

Can I be added to a waiting list?

We do not have a waiting list for COVID-19 vaccine appointments. You can check this page to learn about upcoming vaccination events. You can find it directly at PPNCS.org/COVID-Vaccine.

Which COVID-19 vaccine does Planned Parenthood offer?

We are offering the vaccines allotted to us by federal and state health authorities. The brand may vary by date and location.

How many shots will I need?

The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require two doses to be effective. The doses are given either 21 or 28 days apart, depending on which vaccine you receive.

The Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine is given as a single dose. There is no second dose needed for this vaccine.

Do I have to get both vaccines at Planned Parenthood?

No. If you get the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, you can get the second dose at any provider. If you get the Pfizer vaccine, the second dose should be administered 21 days after the initial shot. If you get the Moderna vaccine, the second dose should be administered 28 days after the initial shot.

The Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine is a single dose, so you will not need a follow-up appointment.

How does COVID-19 relate to sexual health care?
