Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. How can I get a booster dose?
A. Pfizer booster vaccines are now available (as of Friday 9/24/21) for those who received Pfizer vaccine previously. FDA, CDC, and CDPH have also recommended additional doses of Pfizer and Moderna COVID vaccines for a very narrow percentage of the population who are immune compromised as of Friday 8/13/21. You may click here to review the CDC's recommendation. Neither Moderna nor Janssen (J&J) booster vaccines are recommended for the general population yet. More information regarding Moderna and Janssen booster vaccines will be published here when it becomes available.
Q. Why are you asking for my insurance information?
A. Insurance companies are required by the federal government to reimburse pharmacies for providing COVID vaccines. Your insurance information will be used to obtain reimbursement from your insurance company. You may NOT pay out of pocket for a COVID vaccine. Private payment is prohibited by the contract each provider signed to be able to provide COVID vaccines.
Q. What if I am uninsured?
A. COVID vaccines are provided to all persons, including those who are uninsured, at no charge. Please provide whatever documentation you have to verify your identity so that we may appropriately record your vaccination and submit it to the program for uninsured persons. A driver's license, state ID, passport, consular ID, or similar will be acceptable.
Q. How will I schedule my appointment for the second dose of COVID vaccine?
A. As per CDC guidelines, there will be a minimum of 28 days from administration of your first Moderna COVID vaccine and a minimum of 21 days from administration of your first Pfizer COVID vaccine. As of the most recent guidance issued the second dose should be scheduled within 42 days of the first dose. If you are after 42 days, you should not re-start the vaccine series but should get your second dose as soon as possible. If you have further questions about this, please refer to the CDC Guidelines available by clicking here.
A huge THANK YOU goes out to everyone who has helped us in the process of getting these shots delivered to all of the patients we have vaccinated thus far. THANK YOU to those individuals who have answered the call to get somewhere in a hurry to use up the remaining vaccines at some of the facilities where we had extra doses that would have gone to waste. THANK YOU to the nurses, dentists, dental assistants, pharmacists, pharmacy students, pharmacy technicians, medical assistants, veterinarians, and all the others who have volunteered and helped manage the clinics we’ve had in the store and offsite. We are overwhelmed with gratitude.
