Important information for a pleasant vaccination experience:

    • There is a 15-30 minute observation period once the dose is administered.
    • Please wear clothes that allow easy access to your shoulder area.
    • Please do not take selfies when getting the shot.
    • People who have previously tested positive for COVID-19 are more likely to experience mild COVID-19-like symptoms as a result of the vaccine, which is not an adverse reaction, but rather normal signs that your body is building protection.
    • Be sure to bring your Vaccination Record Card if visiting for your 2nd dose, booster shot, or an additional primary dose of the vaccine.
    • Bring a photo ID.
    • Bring your health insurance card.

    Remember:

    • It takes time for your body to build protection after any vaccination. COVID-19 vaccines that require 2 shots may not protect you until a week or two after your second shot.
    • It’s important for everyone to continue using all the tools available to help stop this pandemic as we learn more about how COVID-19 vaccines work in real-world conditions. Cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others, stay at least 6 feet away from others, avoid crowds, and wash your hands often.

    COVID-19 Vaccine Frequently Asked Questions

    How much is the vaccine going to cost? Am I going to get a bill?

    There is no cost to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. RAHC doesn’t bill for the vaccine but does bill for the administration of the vaccine which is covered by insurance. Patients without insurance will not be billed for the administration of the vaccine.

    Insured patients will need to provide complete coverage information—Front and Back Copy of the Insurance card(s), Member ID, Group Number, and Subscriber information.
