Cost of Vaccine
The COVID-19 vaccine is now similar to a flu shot. If you have insurance that we are contracted with, we can bill the insurance. If you do not have insurance, you may qualify for the Bridge program available through Mountainlands Community Health Center or through some pharmacies, which can minimize the cost.
*If you are planning to receive additional vaccines on the same day, you will need to bring your health insurance card for those vaccines.
Preparing for a COVID-19 Vaccine
Before you come for your vaccination, please hydrate and eat well.
The CDC does not recommend taking ibuprofen, aspirin, or acetaminophen BEFORE your vaccination to try prevent side effects. However, if you do take these types of medications regularly for other reasons, please continue taking them prior to vaccination.
If you have questions about medications you are taking, please contact your primary care physician.
Acceptable Forms of ID
When you come for your vaccine, you will be asked to show ID. Acceptable forms of ID include driver license, government issued ID, birth certificate, foreign issued government ID, passport, student ID, expired passport/driver license, or utility bill.
For those who are under the age of 18, no ID is required. However, minors need to be accompanied by an adult who must present their ID.
