What type of vaccination do you provide?

We provide the Pfizer vaccine.

Do I have to register?
Yes! Please register for an appointment here.
What are the risks of the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine?

Vaccinated individuals may experience minimal or mild side effects. Common side effects that have been reported include:

  • Injection site reactions: pain, tenderness and swelling of the lymph nodes, swelling (hardness), and redness.
  • General side effects: fatigue, headache, muscle pain, joint pain, chills, nausea and vomiting, and fever.

Side effects typically last less than a few days.

What should I do about side effects?

In most cases, discomfort from pain or fever is normal. To overcome common side effects:

  • Apply a clean, cool, wet washcloth over the area
  • Use or exercise your arm
  • To reduce discomfort from fever, hydrate, and dress lightly. Talk to your doctor or health care provider about taking over-the-counter medications, such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen.
  • If you experience a severe allergic reaction (see below), call 911, or go to the nearest hospital immediately.
Do I still have to wear a mask after being vaccinated?

Until a majority of the population has been vaccinated (some estimate 70% of Americans would help us reach herd immunity), wearing a mask, washing your hands, practicing physical distancing, and avoiding large indoor gatherings will remain essential.

What would prevent me from being vaccinated?

If you answer yes to any of the following questions, you will be asked to return home and reschedule your visit:

  • Have you experienced any of the following symptoms in the past 48 hours?
    • Fever or chills
    • Cough
    • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    • Fatigue
    • Muscle or body aches
    • Headache
    • New loss of taste or smell
    • Sore throat
    • Runny nose
    • Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
  • Have you been in close contact with anyone with COVID-19 in the past 14 days?
  • Have you been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 10 days?
  • Have you received another vaccine in the last 14 days?
Can I get the COVID-19 vaccine if I recently received another vaccine?

No, the COVID-19 vaccine series should be administered alone, with a minimum interval of 14 days before and after administration of other vaccines.

When do I register for my second dose?

Registration for the second dose of your vaccine will be done on-site after receiving your first dose.

Is parking available at the vaccination site?

There is free on-street parking on Woodruff Way and surrounding streets. The long driveway to the community center will be coned off and the few parking spaces will be reserved for handicapped patients.

Is the vaccination site wheelchair accessible?

Yes! Our vaccination site is wheelchair accessible.
