Vaccination is key to ending the pandemic. If you are eligible, you should consider being vaccinated.
Please reach out to your care provider to confirm you should take the COVID-19 vaccine if you have any of the following medical conditions:
- A fever
- A bleeding disorder or are on a blood thinner
- Are on a medicine that affects your immune system or are immunocompromised
- Are pregnant, plan to become pregnant or are breastfeeding
Learn about the ingredients and more information about the Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines. You also must be old enough to receive the vaccine.
The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is approved for people 16 and older. The Moderna vaccine is approved for people 18 and older.
If you have concerns about vaccination based on your specific medical history, please discuss them with your medical provider.
People who were pregnant or breastfeeding were not included in the first vaccine trials. This is not unusual, as clinical trials don’t typically include people who are pregnant or lactating until the vaccine has been shown to be safe in the general population. However, people who are pregnant and become sick with COVID-19 have been shown to have worse outcomes from the illness. If you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant or breastfeeding, talk to your physician about COVID-19 vaccination or visit the CDC to learn more.
No, if you are under quarantine for any reason, you should schedule vaccination for after your quarantine period ends. If you need to reschedule your appointment, please call the clinic where your appointment is scheduled.
