Your natural immunity may lessen over time, and may not protect you from variants of COVID-19, which have spread broadly across our area. Vaccine is your best defense against getting COVID-19 again, and spreading it to those around you.
Insurance Card Needed for Vaccination
Please bring your health insurance or Medicare card to your vaccine appointment. The vaccine is available to all recipients at no out-of-pocket expense.
Side effects like headache, fatigue, muscle aches, and mild fever are all common and show that the vaccine is working to build immunity. If you experience more serious symptoms after your vaccination, contact your clinic or primary care provider, either by phone or by sending a message through AveraChart. Your primary care provider has the best understanding of your health history.
In a true emergency, dial 911.
