Everyone 12 and over is eligible for the vaccine.
Vaccine Call Center
The COVID-19 vaccination helpline is available to help answer vaccination questions, to verify pre-registration status, and even to help individuals sign up for a vaccine appointment if they are unable to register themselves through the online vaccine appointment system.
How do they work?
Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are known as mRNA vaccines.
Messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines help our body develop immunity against COVID-19. Immunity means that your body will quickly recognize the virus that causes COVID-19 and will protect you from getting sick.
- mRNA vaccines do not change your DNA
- mRNA vaccines do not cause disease
- mRNA vaccines are not weakened COVID19 viruses
The Moderna and Pfizer vaccine require 2 separate doses for it to reach full efficacy.
- The Pfizer vaccine requires doses 21 days apart.
- The Moderna vaccine requires doses 28 days apart.
