Patients can get their COVID-19 booster after 6 months of receiving their second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine.

Individuals may receive either the Moderna or Pfizer booster vaccine no matter which vaccine they received in the initial series. The CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.

Anyone who received Johnson &Johnson vaccine is eligible for a Moderna or Pfizer booster shot at 2 months or more after their initial vaccination.

Things to know: 

  •  It’s FREE to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

  • You don’t need to have insurance or citizenship to get the vaccine.

  • All vaccine recipients are monitored for 15 minutes after receiving the injection in case of any allergic reaction, and anyone with a history of severe allergic reactions to foods or medications are monitored for 30 minutes.

  • COVID-19 vaccines don’t make you sterile or affect your fertility in any way. Research shows there is no evidence that a person will have problems getting pregnant after getting the COVID-19 vaccine.

PPOSBC VACCINE CLINIC FAQS

Even if I get COVID-19, I'll be okay, right?

More and more young people are being hospitalized for COVID-19 as the Delta variant surges through the U.S. Experts say that initially a person’s age and underlying conditions were the biggest factors for if a person would need to be hospitalized, but now it’s vaccine status. Currently, people ages 18 - 49 make up the largest demographic of hospitalized people due to COVID-19, according to the CDC.

Should I worry about long-term side effects after receiving the vaccine?

Serious side effects that would cause a long-term health problem are extremely unlikely following COVID-19 vaccination.

Long-term side effects following any vaccination are extremely rare. Vaccine monitoring has historically shown that if side effects are going to happen, they generally happen within six weeks of receiving a vaccine dose. Millions of people have received COVID-19 vaccines, and no long-term side effects have been detected.

How were the COVID-19 vaccines made so quickly?

The science behind the breakthrough had a head start. Researchers had already made progress developing vaccines for other types of coronaviruses: they applied lessons learned after the 2003 SARS epidemic and the 2012 MERS outbreak. They also learned a lot from creating a vaccine for Ebola — which isn’t a coronavirus but has taught us more about viruses.

The rapid spread of COVID-19 made developing these vaccines an international priority, unlocking billions of dollars in funding to ensure safety while moving with urgency to save lives.

Many researchers and medical experts came together to develop the vaccine while still meeting the FDA’s rigorous requirements for safety and effectiveness, and manufacturing quality.

I already had COVID-19, do I still need to get vaccinated?

Yes, you should be vaccinated regardless of whether you already had COVID-19. That’s because experts do not yet know how long you are protected from getting sick again after recovering from COVID-19. Even if you have already recovered from COVID-19, it is possible that you could be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 again. Studies have shown that vaccination provides a strong boost in protection in people who have recovered from COVID-19.

If you were treated for COVID-19 with monoclonal antibodies or convalescent plasma, you should wait 90 days before getting a COVID-19 vaccine. Talk to your doctor if you are unsure what treatments you received or if you have more questions about getting a COVID-19 vaccine.

Can I treat or prevent COVID-19 with home remedies?

Treatments used for COVID-19 should be prescribed by your healthcare provider. People have been seriously harmed and even died after taking products not approved for COVID-19, even products approved or prescribed for other uses.

Can I get a COVID vaccine if I am pregnant or wanting to become pregnant?  

Yes, if you are pregnant, you can receive the COVID-19 vaccine. You might want to have a conversation with your healthcare provider to help you decide whether to get vaccinated. While such a conversation might be helpful, it is not required before vaccination. Learn more about vaccination considerations for people who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

If trying to get pregnant now or in the future, would-be parents can receive a COVID-19 vaccine. There is currently no evidence that any vaccines, including COVID-19 vaccines, cause female or male infertility, or problems getting pregnant. Learn more here.

If you are trying to become pregnant, you do not need to avoid pregnancy after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine.

How do the Moderna and Pfizer mRNA COVID-19 vaccines work?

mRNA vaccines are a new type of vaccine to protect against infectious diseases. Unlike many vaccines, the mRNA vaccines do not put a weakened or inactivated germ into our bodies.

Instead, they teach our cells how to make a protein that triggers an immune response inside our bodies. That immune response, which produces antibodies, is what protects us from getting infected if the real virus enters our bodies. Learn more about mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.

How do I know which COVID-19 vaccine information sources are accurate?

Accurate vaccine information is critical and can help stop common myths and rumors.

It can be difficult to know which sources of information you can trust. Before considering vaccine information on the internet, check that the information comes from a credible source and is updated on a regular basis. Learn more about finding credible vaccine information.

Does vaccination require citizenship?

You do not have to be a US citizen to be vaccinated. The Department of Health Services (DHS) encourages all individuals, regardless of immigration status, to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. DHS and its Federal government partners fully support equal access to the COVID-19 vaccines and believe it is a public health imperative to ensure that all individuals residing in the United States have access to the vaccine. Learn more.
