Vaccination Update, Friday, April 16, 2021

Vaccine Supply:

Today we received confirmation from the Department of Health of shipment for 1200 Moderna 2nd doses and 300 Moderna 1st doses.  We canceled both Johnson & Johnson clinics due to issues reported about an extremely rare disorder involving people with blood clots in combination with low platelets in a small number of individuals who have received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. As we wait further instruction from the CDC regarding the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, we encourage anyone 18 and older to schedule for one of the Moderna clinics on April 22nd or 23rd.

“It’s your turn!  Schedule today!”

I have an appointment, what do I need to bring to the appointment?

Please plan to arrive 5 minutes prior to your appointment (arriving early, only creates backups).  Bring your ID and insurance card if you have one.  All patients must sign the acknowledgment form before each vaccine.  If you do not have a printer, forms will be available at the Immunization Clinic.

Vaccine forms can be found in the right margin of this page.

I made an appointment, but I need to change the date of my second appointment. What do I do?

Our current system automatically schedules your second appointment at the CDC recommended interval.  We encourage you to schedule so that both appointments accommodate your schedule.  Rescheduling can be complicated based on the vaccine allocated to us.  If you absolutely need to reschedule your second appointment please email vaccineresponse@jeffersonhealthcare.org and we will do our best to respond in a timely fashion.

Do I still need to wear a mask after my vaccine?
