Vaccines Information

 

Everyone Who Wants a Safe and Effective Vaccine

Only the Pfizer vaccine is approved for individuals age 12 and up. Eligible individuals under the age of 18 should consult our weekly vaccine schedule to confirm Pfizer is available before scheduling their appointment.

The first dose you receive (Moderna or Pfizer) will depend on our supply on hand. You will receive the same vaccine (Moderna or Pfizer) for your second as you did for your first dose. Check the vaccination calendar for locations that offer the Johnson and Johnson vaccine.

The vaccines are free to everyone, even if you don’t have health insurance.

Bring an ID card if you have one. However, an ID card is not required. Personal information about your health and identity is carefully managed to protect your privacy. It is not shared with CDC or ICE.

You can receive your second dose at one of our locations even if you did not receive your first dose with us. Click  here to schedule an appointment.

Parental Consent may be required
North Carolina law gives people under the age of 18 the ability to make certain health decisions, including the choice to get a COVID-19 vaccine, if they show the decisional capacity to do so. Decisional capacity is a person’s ability to understand their health and health care needs and options, and to make decisions about them. As part of normal development most children can make these kinds of decisions like an adult at some point before the age of 18. There is no one age at which this always occurs; it varies from child to child. Clinic staff will assess a person’s ability to show decisional capacity during the screening process on site.

COVID vaccines and pregnancy, breastfeeding, and fertility  
Vaccines are a routine part of prenatal care and people who are pregnant, breastfeeding or want to become pregnant can be safely vaccinated against COVID-19. Pregnant people are at increased risk for severe COVID-19 and the vaccines are very effective in preventing COVID-19 illness. People who are pregnant, breastfeeding or want to become pregnant may choose to receive any currently recommended COVID-19 vaccine.

The temporary reactions from COVID-19 vaccines are the same for both pregnant and non-pregnant people. Additional information can be found here. Pregnant people can talk with their doctors before making the choice. You do not need to take a pregnancy test before you get your vaccine. COVID-19 vaccines are not thought to be a risk to lactating people or their infants. It is possible that immunity from the vaccines can be passed to a baby through breastfeeding. There is no need to wait or avoid pregnancy after being vaccinated. The vaccines do not impact your ability to get pregnant.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends vaccination for all eligible people, including those who may want to get pregnant. Women in the clinical trials successfully became pregnant following vaccination and there have been no safety data to suggest that the vaccines impact the ability of a woman to get pregnant. Similarly, the Society for Male Reproduction and Urology recommends that men who desire fertility should be encouraged to get vaccinated when they are eligible.

Johnson and Johnson Updates

After a brief pause and careful investigation, the CDC and FDA recommend resuming the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to prevent serious illness, hospitalization and death from COVID-19. Following this guidance, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services has recommended that North Carolina vaccine providers resume the use of Johnson & Johnson vaccines now that their safety has been reaffirmed.
