COVID-19 Vaccination

Covid-19 Vaccines (primary doses and boosters):

HealthPoint offers Moderna primary and booster vaccine for patients 6 months and older.  

The CDC recommends for everyone, from the age of 6 months, to stay up to date with Covid-19 vaccinations: Stay Up to Date with COVID-19 Vaccines | CDC

The number of recommended Covid vaccine doses depends on a patient’s age, number of previously received Covid vaccines, and overall health status. Please contact your healthcare provider if you have any questions.   

What are Covid-19 variants?

New versions of the original Covid-19 virus continue to emerge and are called ‘variants.’ This is normal and expected virus development.  It is important to understand that with the evolvement of new variants, patients might require additional and/or updated vaccinations to provide a boost to the immune system and protect the patient against the newer version(s) of the virus.

The CDC Covid tracker provides detailed and regional information about variant spread within the United States.  CDC COVID Data Tracker: Summary of Variant Surveillance 

Are COVID-19 Vaccines Safe for Children, Teens, and Adults?

Yes, the vaccine is safe for children, teens and adults! The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized the COVID-19 Moderna vaccine for people 6 months and older and, thereby, declared that the vaccine meets the safety standards for administration.

Are there side effects?

Some people might have symptoms like headache, a sore arm, fatigue, or fever after getting the shot. This is normal and a good sign that the body's immune system is building up protection. Contact your health care provider if: 

- Side effects feel severe or last more than a few days 

- Redness or tenderness where you got the shot increases after 24 hours (it is normal for the area to be a little sore for a few days) 

Should pregnant or breastfeeding people receive the vaccine?

Covid vaccines have proven to be safe before or during pregnancy and while breastfeeding. The vaccine provides protection from possibly devastating Covid-19 disease and has not been liked to fertility problems in men or women. For more information, visit the CDC website: COVID-19 Vaccines While Pregnant or Breastfeeding (  

I've had COVID-19. Should I get the vaccine?

If you tested positive for COVID-19 you can decide to delay your vaccination by 3 months as the risk for reinfection is low within that timeframe. However, some situations warrant an earlier immunization. Visit the CDC’s website for more information: Stay Up to Date with COVID-19 Vaccines Including Boosters | CDC.
