Drug Mart Pharmacy currently has Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, and Pfizer vaccines in stock.

Do I need a booster shot? When should I get my booster shot?

Boosters are being recommended because data is showing that protection against mild and moderate COVID-19 via the vaccines is declining over time — particularly for those who were vaccinated some time ago. A booster shot is now recommended for anyone over the age of 18 who finished their mRNA series [Pfizer or Moderna] at least six months ago or received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least two months ago.

How much will this vaccine cost me?
Zero dollars ($0). The government has paid for all the vaccines in the country. There is an administration fee. In most, if not all cases, it's covered by insurance. And those without insurance, the State will cover those costs. So we can all get the vaccine without worrying about the economics of it.

Of the potential Coronavirus candidates, which one should I take? Is one better? Should I take all three to maximize efficacy?
The bottom line is they're all great. They block 100% getting very ill or hospitalized to the virus, which is the goal. You may choose which COVID-19 vaccine you receive as a booster shot. Some people may prefer the vaccine type that they originally received, and others may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.

If I take the vaccine, does that mean I can travel, roam around freely with no mask, and do all the things I did pre-COVID?
No. When you take the vaccine, you will dramatically reduce your risk of getting the virus, and also eliminate the chance of being hospitalized. But you still, there's a small percentage that may get a little runny nose or a little cold, and you can spread the virus. So it is critical that we all wear the masks until the virus numbers come down dramatically.

If I already had COVID-19 and I have antibodies, do I still need the vaccine?
Yes. We don't have a test, really, for what we call neutralizing antibodies. So the antibodies you have are general. And it doesn't mean you have immunity to the virus. So everyone who previously had the virus needs to get this vaccine to build antibodies and T cells to fight it.

I have allergies, or I'm on different medications. Is it okay to get this vaccine?
The answer is uniformly yes. There is no interaction with medications in this vaccine. So it is really important that we all get it, especially people with other medical conditions.

If I have a suppressed immune system, is it safe to take this vaccine?
Yes. Mainly because there is no live virus in this vaccine. So if you have cancer, Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Guillain-Barré syndrome, autoimmune diseases, it is safe to take this vaccine.

Is this vaccine safe for children?
The COVID-19 vaccine for children is safe and effective. It has undergone rigorous review, and now has been authorized by FDA and recommended by CDC for children between the ages of 5 to 11 years, after thorough testing for safety in thousands of children.

What are some normal side effects and how long could they last?
This is critical. Most people get side effects, which is good. It's your immune system reacting to this vaccine. A pain in the arm in the injection site, fever, chills, fatigue — all of which are common. All of which go away after 24 to 48 hours. So it is critical that you are aware of this. If you feel bad the next day, that's pretty normal, and it will get better. And Tylenol is a remarkable antidote for most of the side effects related to this vaccine.

How long after getting the vaccine do we know we are protected? How long will the protection last?
Pfizer and Moderna have been monitoring immunity in people who were given their vaccines in the initial clinical trials—both companies had reported strong overall efficacy at the six-month mark. CDC now recommends everyone age 18 and older should receive a booster shot 6 months after receiving the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine and 2 months after receiving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
