COVID-19 Vaccination FAQ
What if I'm pregnant?
People who are pregnant can still get the COVID-19 vaccine and is also safe for those who want to have a baby one day. For more visit the COVID-19 Vaccines and Pregnancy information page.
When will I be able to get vaccinated?
All groups are now eligible to recieve the vaccine, ages 16 and older.
Will I need two doses?
The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines that are on the market will require two doses to be effective, the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine will only require one dose (however, this vaccine is currently on hold due to recommendations to pause from the FDA and CDC). Want to learn more about the differences in vaccines? Visit our Comparing COVID-19 Vaccines page.
Can I get COVID-19 from the vaccine?
No. None of the COVID-19 vaccines currently available use the live virus that causes COVID-19. However, an individual could experience symptoms, such as fever, after getting the vaccine as the body builds immunity. It typically takes a few weeks for the body to build immunity after vaccination. That means it is possible that a person could be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 just before or after vaccination and get sick as the vaccine has not had enough time to provide protection.
What are the side effects?
Typical side effects may include some soreness and/or redness at the injection site, low grade fever, headache, muscle pain, chills or nausea. .
Now that there is a vaccine available, do we still need to follow current guidelines?
Yes. The best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is by wearing a mask, social distancing and washing your hands frequently. We must stay dilligent until there is enough vaccine available to the public. Continue to follow CDC Guidelines.

What if I need to get tested?
Community members in need of a COVID-19 test should call their primary care provider to arrange a clinic visit to be tested. Community members who do not have a primary care provider may contact Horizon Healthcare or Quick Care to arrange a clinic visit. Please be advised that there will be a clinic visit charge. It is important to call ahead in order to protect clinic staff and other patients from possible COVID-19 exposure.
You can also request an at-home COVID-19 test FREE of charge. Once you recieve the test, you will get results 24-48 hours after the sample arrives at the lab.
Based on the severity of your symptoms, your provider may ask you to stay home and isolate yourself. Please follow these recommendations from the CDC.
