Generally, yes. The Hamilton County Health Department offers the Pfizer, J&J, and Moderna vaccines for adults as well as a pediatric Pfizer dose for children ages 5-11. Adults can choose any of the three vaccines for first doses and booster shots. However, choices may be limited to what is currently in stock.
No. None of the COVID-19 vaccines contain the live virus so a vaccine cannot make you sick with COVID-19. You may have some side effects however. This is a normal sign that your body is building protection. Side effects may feel like flu and might even affect your ability to daily activities, but they should go away in a few days.
The State Department of Health has worked with partners from across the state to develop a vaccination plan. There are currently five Vaccine Advisory Groups including: the Vaccine Allocation Plan Development Advisory Group, the Ethical Considerations Advisory Group, the Vaccine Review Advisory Group, the Equitable Distribution and Communication Advisory Group, and the Data Advisory Group. Learn more at www.ourshot.in.gov.
After you receive your vaccine, you will receive a vaccine record card and will be asked to stay at the clinic for 15 minutes for observation. A nurse will check in with you to make sure you’re not exhibiting any signs of an allergic reaction. That is also a good time to schedule an appointment for your second dose.
Hamilton County uses fire and EMS providers to administer COVID-19 vaccines to Homebound Hoosiers. Contact your local Area Agency on Aging at (800) 986-3505 to register.
Yes. Anyone younger than 18 who wants to get vaccinated will need permission from a parent or guardian. Teenagers will need to either have a parent or guardian present or bring a signed note from a parent or guardian with them to the appointment. Teens will also need to bring proof of age like a driver’s license, state ID, or birth certificate.
The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention now says a person is fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving the last recommended dose of vaccine. This is two weeks after the second dose of Pfizer and Moderna, and two weeks after a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
