    • Bring a photo ID.
    • Bring your health insurance card.


    • Side effects after getting a COVID-19 vaccine can vary from person to person.
    • Some people experience a little discomfort and can continue to go about their day. Others have side effects that affect their ability to do daily activities.
    • Side effects generally go away in a few days.
    • Even if you don’t experience any side effects, your body is building protection against the virus that causes COVID-19.

    Getting a COVID-19 vaccine after having COVID-19

    If you recently had COVID-19, you still need to stay up to date with your vaccines, but you may consider delaying your vaccine by 3 months.

    Reinfection is less likely in the weeks to months after infection. However, certain factors could be reasons to get a vaccine sooner rather than later, such as:

    • personal risk of severe disease,
    • risk of disease in a loved one or close contact,
    • local COVID-19 hospital admission level,
    • and the most common COVID-19 variant currently causing illness.

    COVID-19 Vaccine Frequently Asked Questions

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

    RAHC doesn’t bill for the vaccine but does bill for the administration of the vaccine which is covered by insurance. 

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

    RAHC participates in CDC’s Bridge Access Program to offer COVID-19 vaccines at no cost for patients 18 years and older without health insurance and adults whose health insurance does not provide zero-cost coverage for COVID-19 vaccines.

    Can I get more than 1 updated COVID-19 vaccine??

    People aged 6 months and older who are moderately or severely immunocompromised may get additional updated COVID-19 vaccine doses 2 or more months after the last recommended COVID-19 vaccine.

    Talk to your healthcare provider about additional updated doses.
