ui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonI tried to register for a COVID Vaccine visit on the virtual waitlist, but do not see it as an option. What does this mean?

If COVID Vaccine – 1st dose is not listed as a visit reason when registering for our virtual waitlist, this means we do not currently have additional first doses in stock. COVID vaccine inventory is managed at the State and City level, so unfortunately we have limited control over delivery frequency and shipment quantity.    We recommend that you attempt to register for our virtual waitlists on at the beginning of each week, as replenishment shipments are most likely to arrive Monday through Wednesday, when inventory is available. 

ui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonWhat type of COVID Vaccine does ModernMD have?

ModernMD is currently offering the Moderna vaccine, which is a two dose vaccine series, with each dose being administered 4 weeks apart.    Studies have shown the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to be 94.% effective at preventing laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 illness in people who received two doses.

ui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonDoes my insurance cover COVID-19 vaccine?

In short, visiting ModernMD to receive your COVID-19 vaccine is entirely free to the patient. If you are insured, New York State requires us to collect and submit your insurance information for documentation purposes, but you are not responsible for a co-payment, deductible, co-insurance or laboratory fee and will not receive a bill for your visit.    If you are uninsured, you will not be charged for your COVID-19 vaccine visits. 

ui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonHow long after receiving the first dose of COVID vaccine should I receive the second dose?

Second doses of Moderna Vaccine should be administered within four weeks of the first dose.  However, you may receive your second dose up to six weeks after your first.

ui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonHow do I reschedule my second dose vaccine appointment?

If you are unable to make it to the second dose vaccine appointment scheduled for you at your first visit, please email us at [email protected] to reschedule. 

ui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonI forgot the date of my second dose vaccine appointment. What do I do?

All COVID vaccine patients will receive frequent text reminders about their upcoming second dose vaccine appointment. However, please feel free to email us at [email protected] to confirm your appointment details.

ui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonI received my first dose somewhere else. Can I receive the second dose at ModernMD?

Unfortunately, no. New York State mandates that all COVID vaccine providers administer a second dose of vaccine to each patient they administered the first to, so you are required to go to the same vaccination site you visited last time to complete your vaccine series.    New York state automatically delivers a second dose for each first dose administered, so be sure to follow up with your original vaccination location to schedule your follow up appointment.

ui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonWill the vaccine give me COVID-19?

No. COVID vaccines do not include any form of COVID-19 virus and are not made up of materials that can cause disease.

ui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonWill the vaccine make me sick?

While COVID vaccine cannot infect you with the COVID-19 virus, you may feel a little “under the weather” after receiving your vaccine. This  is a sign of the body’s normal immune response to getting vaccinated.  Symptoms of immune response can include:  
  • Soreness at the injection site
  • Headache
  • Chills
  • Fever
  • Tiredness
  If you still don’t feel well after two or three days, visit your Primary Care Provider.

ui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonCan I get an allergic reaction from the COVID-19 vaccine?

People can have allergic reactions to any medication or biological product such as a vaccine.  Most allergic reactions occur shortly after a vaccine is administered, which is why it is recommended that persons with a history of anaphylaxis (due to any cause) are observed for 30 minutes after vaccination, while all other persons are observed for 15 minutes after vaccination. CDC recommends anyone with an allergy to “any component” of the vaccine not get the vaccine.

ui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonCan I get the COVID-19 vaccine if I am pregnant?

Yes, if you are pregnant you can choose to be vaccinated. Currently, experts believe that the vaccines are not likely to pose a risk for people who are pregnant or trying to get pregnant. Both the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists currently recommend that pregnant women receive the COVID-19 vaccine and may choose to be vaccinated if they do not have a medical reason not to be vaccinated. Consider speaking to your healthcare provider to help decide whether to get vaccinated.

ui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonCan my children get the COVID vaccine?

No, persons under 18 years of age are not currently eligible for vaccine, as studies around safety and effectiveness are still under way. Please note that while COVID vaccine has been approved for use in persons 18+ years old, patients below the age of 30 years old are not currently eligible based on state guidelines, unless approved to receive vaccine based on occupation or health status.

ui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonHow long does protection from a COVID-19 vaccine last?

It is not fully known how long protection lasts for those who are vaccinated. However, getting vaccinated drastically reduces your chances of experiencing severe symptoms of COVID should you contract it and clears you to participate in activities that are otherwise restricted.

ui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonDo I need to wear a mask and avoid close contact if I have gotten two doses of the vaccine?

You should continue to take precautions in public settings such as wearing a mask, practicing social distancing by staying 6 feet apart from others, good hand hygiene by washing your hands regularly and avoiding crowds. If you’ve been fully vaccinated, you can gather indoors with fully vaccinated people without wearing a mask.

ui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonWhen am I considered fully vaccinated?

2 weeks after the second dose for Pfizer and Moderna vaccines or 2 weeks after the single dose vaccine Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine, you are considered fully vaccinated.  If it has been less than 2 weeks since the single shot vaccine or you still need to get your second dose, you are NOT fully protected.

ui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonCan I get vaccinated against COVID-19 while I am currently sick with COVID-19?

No. People with COVID-19 who have symptoms should wait to be vaccinated until they have recovered and have met the criteria for discontinuing isolation. Those without symptoms should also wait until they meet the criteria before getting vaccinated. This guidance also applies to people who get COVID-19 before getting their second dose of vaccine.

ui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonIf you get a vaccine do you need a negative COVID test beforehand?

No. The CDC does not recommend COVID-19 screening tests before receiving the vaccine.

ui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonIf I have already had COVID-19 and recovered, do I still need to get vaccinated?

Yes, you should be vaccinated regardless of whether you already had COVID-19, as experts do not know how long you are protected from getting sick again after recovering from COVID-19. If you were treated for COVID-19 with monoclonal antibodies or convalescent plasma, you should wait 90 days before getting a COVID-19 vaccine.

ui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonui accordion buttonWill the vaccine work against the new coronavirus strains?

There are confirmed cases of the UK coronavirus B.1.1.7 in New York State. It is a more contagious variant; however, it is not believed to be more resistant to the COVID-19 vaccines.
