COVID-19 Vaccine FAQs

We are currently giving out the Moderna, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 Vaccines.

While the development of COVID-19 vaccines has proceeded rapidly to help save lives, none of the steps in place to test vaccines for safety have been skipped. Two of those vaccines, one from Pfizer and one from Moderna, tested their vaccines over 70,000 people altogether from many walks of life and ethnicities to make sure they were safe and effective.

People enrolled in these clinical trials, were either given the real vaccine or a salt-water solution (placebo). After following the groups for a period of time, scientists were able to show that the groups that received real vaccine were protected against COVID-19. The two vaccines were around 95% effective at preventing COVID-19 without causing serious side effects.

There are two doses. Both of the vaccines currently available require 2 shots several weeks apart.

Johnson & Johnson is only one dose. 

Once you receive your first dose, we will schedule your second dose and it will be upon the county distribution availability.

We are currently vaccinating patients who are 12+ years and older, following local, State, Manufacturer, and CDC guidelines.

Pfizer is now being offered at all CHSI locations.

Currently all CHSI locations are offering the COVID-19 vaccine. Schedule your appointment online here.

As we continue to vaccinate our patients, the county regulates the availability of the amount we receive. 

When we get through each batch of vaccinations we can then order more. We do anticipate continually getting more doses, if available by the county.

Yes, you are still eligible. The current CDC recommendations are to postpone vaccinations for 90 days after the infection to prioritize those who do not have natural immunity from a previous COVID-19 disease.

Yes! Both COVID-19 and the virus that causes flu will be spreading this winter. The Flu shot only protects you from the flu but it’s important to get your vaccine to avoid getting both COVID-19 and flu at the same time. Also, protecting yourself against flu will help keep our hospitals more open to help those with COVID-19 as it spreads through the winter. The flu vaccine and COVID-19 vaccine may have to be given a few weeks apart so talk to your doctor about the timing of when to get your flu vaccine.

It is possible to have an allergic reaction to any vaccine or medication including the COVID-19 vaccine. Serious allergic reactions from the COVID-19 vaccine are very rare but talk to your doctor before getting your vaccine if you have a history of severe allergic reactions.

Our clinical staff is trained to administer the COVID-19 vaccine, and will monitor all patients for side effects for at least 15 minutes after receiving their vaccine.

The mild side effects identified with the COVID-19 vaccine may include, but not limited to: pain at the injection site, tiredness, headaches, muscle pain, and fever. Please contact us if you need medical attention or call 911.

3rd COVID-19 Vaccine Dose

Did you Know?

It is highly recommended that individuals who are immunocompromised receive a third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

This additional dose is intended to improve immunocompromised people’s response to their initial vaccine series.

CHSI Health Centers currently offer the 3rd dose of Pfizer vaccine for eligible individuals. 

  • Individuals who have been receiving active cancer treatment for tumors or cancers of the blood.
  • Individuals who received an organ transplant and are taking medicine to suppress the immune system.
  • Individuals who received a stem cell transplant within the last 2 years or are taking medicine to suppress the immune system.
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (such as DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome).
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection.
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids or other drugs that may suppress your immune response.

CDC recommends the additional dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine be administered at least four weeks after a second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. 

For people who received either Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine series, a third dose of the same mRNA vaccine should be used. A person should not receive more than three mRNA vaccine doses. If the mRNA vaccine product given for the first two doses is not available or is unknown, either mRNA COVID-19 vaccine product may be administered. 

The FDA’s recent EUA amendment only applies to mRNA COVID-19 vaccines, as does CDC’s recommendation. 

Emerging data have demonstrated that immunocompromised people who have low or no protection following two doses of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines may have an improved response after an additional dose of the same vaccine. There is not enough data at this time to determine whether immunocompromised people who received the Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine also have an improved antibody response following an additional dose of the same vaccine. 

An additional dose may prevent serious and possibly life-threatening COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) have been shown to prevent COVID-19 following the two-dose series. Limited information suggest that immunocompromised people who have low or no protection after two doses of mRNA vaccines may have an improved response after an additional dose of the same vaccine. 

There is limited information about the risks of receiving an additional dose of vaccine, and the safety, efficacy, and benefit of additional doses of COVID-19 in immunocompromised people continues to be evaluated. So far, reactions reported after the third mRNA dose were similar to that of the two-dose series: fatigue and pain at injection site were the most commonly reported side effects, and overall, most symptoms were mild to moderate. 
However, as with the two-dose series, serious side effects are rare, but may occur.
