Vaccination

Information

1.

The vaccine will be free of charge to all people living in the United States. No one can be denied a vaccine if they are unable to pay a vaccine administration fee.​

2.

Even if you have already recovered from COVID-19, it is possible—although rare—that you could be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 again.

3.

None of the authorized and recommended vaccines or those in development in the US contain the live virus that causes COVID-19. A vaccine cannot make you sick with COVID-19

4.

Common side effects after getting the vaccine are pain and swelling at the site of injection and fever, chills, tiredness and headache.  You can apply a cool, wet washcloth over your arm to reduce pain and drink plenty of fluids after receiving the vaccine.

5.

For more information about the vaccine, visit the CDC's page.

Use the VaccineFinder website to help you find providers.  There is no residency requirement for coronavirus vaccines in Pennsylvania.  See if you are eligible for phase 1a in Pennsylvania.  If you live, work, or go to school in New Jersey, see if you are eligible for phase 1b. 

According to an article in the Times Herald-Record from February 4th, you can book appointments directly with the  providers below in Orange County.
