What type(s) of vaccine is/are available?
On August 31st, 2022, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) deauthorized the use of monovalent Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines for booster administration.  Due to this change, we will no longer be administering the monovalent COVID-19 vaccine. 
The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine, Bivalentis now recommended and authorized for the emergency use as a single booster dose in individuals 6 years of age and older under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).  The new formulation contains components of the more recent COVID-19 strains and should be administered at least two months following previous primary or booster vaccination.  


How do I make a COVID-19 vaccine appointment?
Administration of the COVID-19 vaccine is a coordinated effort with county and state public agencies. To ensure adequate supply, an appointment is required. Appointments must be made on the My Turn website and is subject to availability.

How much will it cost?
The the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act requires group health plans to provide cost-free coverage of COVID-19 vaccines and their administration during the national public health emergency period without prior authorization.  Providers are prohibited by agreement with the U.S. Government from billing patients for the vaccine or its administration, including balance billing.
