Bivalent COVID-19 vaccines, for all ages 6 months and older, are available by appointment at our Garden and Knoxville locations. Pediatric dose bivalent COVID-19 vaccines, for ages 6 months to 4 years, are also available at our Carver and East Bluff locations.
Receiving vaccines helps your body to build immunity against viruses. COVID-19 vaccination is safe and effective. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the expert panel that works with them have reviewed the data from clinical trials. Through continuous monitoring, vaccination for adults and children continues to be safe and effective. The vaccines do not give you COVID.
Vaccine dosage is based on your age on the day of vaccination, not by weight or size.
Common vaccine side effects*:
- Redness and pain, or swelling at the injection site
- Muscle pain, chills, or fever
- Irritability or crying
- Loss of appetite
* Note: all of these are normal with any vaccine and generally go away in a few days.
