Vaccinations are available to anyone 12 or older
ProHealth Care is offering COVID-19 vaccinations by appointment to anyone 12 or older. Booster shots of the Pfizer vaccine are also available. You do not need to be a ProHealth patient to schedule a vaccination.
We are not currently offering Moderna or Johnson & Johnson boosters. Watch for updated information.
Those ages 12 to 17 require the Pfizer vaccine, and supplies of that vaccine may limit the number of available appointments. Scheduling for those ages 12 to 17 must be done by phone, and they must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the time of the vaccination appointment.
All second doses must be scheduled by phone.
Those seeking third doses or a Pfizer booster shot must schedule online using MyChart or call. A vaccination card must be brought to a second or third-dose appointment. You are eligible for a booster if you meet the following criteria:

- You fall into at least one of the following categories:
- You are 65 or older.
- You are 18 or older and have an underlying medical condition that places you at high risk for severe illness, including high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, cancer, chronic lung or kidney disease, heart disease, dementia and certain disabilities.
- You are 18 or older and are at increased risk of exposure to COVID-19 because of your job. This may include health care workers, teachers, day care staff, grocery workers, and people who work in institutional settings.

No. COVID-19 vaccinations are not being offered in physician offices at this time. In an effort to create a highly efficient process, ProHealth Care has established a central vaccination site where we intend to vaccinate hundreds of patients a day.

Vaccines.gov makes it easy for you to find other vaccination options, if needed.
Are the COVID-19 vaccines safe?
Yes. A vaccine earns government approval only after it has been proven to be both safe and effective. The approval process involves panels of independent experts retained by the pharmaceutical companies as well as reviews by the FDA’s own scientific staff and an independent panel of experts convened by the FDA. No serious safety concerns have been reported with any of the available vaccines.
Can I get COVID-19 from these vaccines?
No. It is not possible to get COVID-19 from the vaccines.
Are the new vaccines effective?
Yes, all three of the vaccines that have been approved for use in the United States have been shown to be highly effective.
How many shots will be needed?
Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require two doses. The Pfizer vaccine requires a second dose 21 days after the initial shot, and the Moderna vaccine requires a second dose 28 days later. The vaccines are not interchangeable, meaning that you will need to receive the same type of vaccine for both doses.
The Johnson & Johnson vaccine requires a single dose.
A third-dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine is now recommended for immunocompromised people and can be scheduled by phone or in MyChart.
A Pfizer booster shot is available to eligible patients at least six months after the second dose and can be scheduled by phone or in MyChart.
How long will it take for the vaccine to begin protecting me?
It normally takes two to three weeks for immunity to develop and several weeks for a full antibody response.
Will the vaccinations cause side effects?
Some people may experience side effects, including sore arms, muscle aches and fever. This is a normal sign that your body is building protection. These symptoms are not expected to last long.
How long will immunity last after vaccination?
Researchers are not yet able to answer this question. The long-term effectiveness of the new vaccines is still being studied.
After I am vaccinated, should I continue to wear a mask and take other precautions?
Yes. Absolutely. We all will need to continue wearing masks, social distancing and washing our hands often. These precautions will be required until enough people have been vaccinated to contain the spread of the virus.
If I had COVID-19 and recovered, do I need to get vaccinated?
Vaccination is recommended unless you were only recently infected. If you had COVID-19 within the last 10 days, you should wait until you have fully recovered before you get vaccinated.
Can I be vaccinated if I am allergic to eggs?
Yes. The COVID-19 vaccines are not made from egg components.
Can children be vaccinated?
The Pfizer vaccine has been approved for those 12 and older. The Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are approved for those 18 and older.
Can women who are pregnant be vaccinated?
Pregnant women should consult with their doctors about whether to get vaccinated.
Where can I get more information about COVID-19 vaccines?
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has included a great deal of information on its website.
