The COVID-19 vaccine is given by injection (shot).

Like all Atrium Health locations, our vaccination sites follow COVID-Safe care measures. We'll ensure physical distancing and have proper personal protective equipment (PPE) on patients and staff.

It depends on which vaccine you get. Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine requires one dose to get you fully vaccinated. The vaccines made by Pfizer and Moderna require 2 doses. All COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective.

If you get a two-dose vaccine, it’s important to get both doses. The first dose gets your immune system ready. It helps your body recognize COVID-19 and fight it if you’re exposed. The second dose gives you the vaccine’s full protection. It makes your immune system stronger and better at fighting COVID-19.

Learn more about why the second dose is so important for the two-dose vaccines.

Here’s some information about what to expect after you get the COVID-19 vaccine. This includes facts about the vaccine you received, what to do after your appointment and common side effects.

There’s no direct cost to you to get the vaccine:

  • If you have insurance, the administration fee will be paid by your insurance with no cost to you.
  • If you do not have insurance, the fee can be paid for by the Provider Relief Fund with no cost to you.

No, it doesn't matter which vaccine you get if you are 18 or older. People ages 16 and 17 can get the Pfizer vaccine. People ages 18 and older can get any approved COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson). For more details visit the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) website. All approved COVID-19 vaccines have shown to be safe and effective. No matter what, you’re getting excellent protection against COVID-19. 

If you’re thinking about getting the COVID-19 vaccine, talk to your doctor. Find out what risk factors you have that could make you very sick with COVID-19. You should also talk about safety and the risk of the vaccine. You and your doctor can decide if getting the vaccine is the best choice.

We understand your concerns and want to reassure you all COVID-19 vaccines have been thoroughly tested. No steps were skipped during the research and approval processes. They’ve been authorized for public use by U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). And COVID-19 vaccination is recommended by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
