The four vaccines available in the United States are all available at Q Day Walk-In Clinic.
The Pfizer vaccine is available to anyone ages 16 and older in the U.S. Individuals 16 years or younger are eligible under a EUA. The dosage includes two shots, 21 days apart, and is fully effective following the second dosage.
Moderna is available for infants, children, and adults ages 6 months and older in the U.S. and includes two shots, 28 days apart. The vaccine is fully effective two weeks after you get the second shot.
Novavax is approved for adults 18 and older is includes 2 doses, 21 days apart.
Johnson & Johnson’s is available to adults 18 and older who specifically request the J&J vaccine or are unable to take a different vaccine for medical reasons. This is a single-shot vaccine fully effective two weeks after vaccination.
Booster shots are given after the protection provided by the original shot(s) has begun to diminish over time. As a result of the booster, people are able to maintain strong protection against severe Coronavirus infections.
When eligible, everyone aged 5 and older should get a booster shot. An additional booster should be given to adults 50 and older and to children 12 and older who are moderately or severely immunocompromised.
When it has been at least 28 days since your second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, immunosuppressed individuals can get an additional dose.
When it has been at least two months since you received the COVID-19 vaccine from Janssen/Johnson & Johnson, you can get an additional dose.
In order to protect against COVID-19, everyone ages 6 months and older should stay up-to-date on their vaccinations, including boosters if eligible.
The risk of severe COVID-19 illness and death increases for people with certain medical conditions or who take medications that weaken their immune systems. In addition, their immune response to COVID-19 vaccination may be weaker than that of people who are not immunocompromised. In addition to COVID-19 vaccines, boosters are recommended for people with moderate or severe immunocompromised conditions.
Researchers have found that getting vaccinated after being infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 provides added protection. Even if you have had COVID-19, healthcare professionals and researchers alike, recommend that you should still get vaccinated.
If you have been infected with COVID-19, your next dose can be delayed for three months from when symptoms began or, if you did not have symptoms, when you received a positive blood test.
The COVID-19 vaccine was authorized for emergency use in the USA for the first time in December 2020. In studies following vaccine use, approximately 90% of cases of symptomatic infection, severe illness, and death were prevented. By July 2021, new variants of the virus had emerged, and CDC recommended continuing masking even for people who had received a primary series. With the release of updated vaccine booster recommendations in the following months, more than 20 ACIP meetings reviewed data on vaccine effectiveness and provided real-time data, demonstrating that COVID-19 vaccines and boosters remain highly protective against severe illness and death.
Among unvaccinated adults, hospitalizations and deaths caused by COVID-19 are significantly higher than among those who have received a primary series and are up to date with recommended vaccinations, particularly among adults over 65. Vaccines offer less protection against symptomatic infection and transmission than against severe diseases, especially against variants that are currently circulating. As new vaccines become available, it is crucial to stay up-to-date. Visit Q Day Walk-In Clinic today to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
