Frequently Asked Questions
- When is the vaccine for COVID-19 available?
- We are registered with both the state and CDC to provide COVID-19 vaccines and will be receiving vaccine based on allocations from the state of Alabama. The supply of vaccine is limited at this time, so we are following recommendations from the local, state, and federal government to vaccinate priority groups first. The vaccine will be available by appointment only at our store.
- Who is eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine?
- At this time, those eligible for a vaccine are front-line healthcare workers, residents of long-term care facilities, first-responders, persons age 75 and older, those living in a group home or homeless shelters, and frontline critical workers. Critical workers include: first responders, corrections officers and support staff, food and agriculture workers, USPS workers, manufacturing workers, grocery store workers, public transit workers, educators (including child care workers) and support staff, judiciary, and clergy/ministers. We will update our website as well as our Facebook and Instagram pages as we get more information.
- What vaccine do you have?
- The FDA has issued emergency use authorization (EUA) for two vaccines - the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine and Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine. We will be receiving the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. It requires two doses of the vaccine to be effective. The Moderna vaccine and the Pfizer vaccine are not interchangeable and the two doses you receive need to be from the same vaccine manufacturer.
- How much does the COVID-19 vaccine cost?
- The COVID-19 vaccine is free for everyone, regardless of whether you have health insurance or not.
- What are COVID-19 vaccine side effects?
- The most common side effects include pain and swelling on the arm where you got your vaccine. You may also get other side effects including fever, chills, tiredness, and headache. These side effects should go away in a few days. If you did not have any side effects from the first dose, you may still experience side effects with the second dose. Because the vaccine was approved for emergency use, other side effects have yet to be determined.
