COVID-19 Vaccination Registration

Important information for a  pleasant vaccination experience:

  • RAHC is administering Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine. This vaccine is approved for people 18 years and older.
  • The vaccine will be given in 2 DOSES, 4 WEEKS APART.  We request that patients commit to receiving both doses.
  • 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, rather normal signs that your body is building protection.
  • Be sure to bring your Vaccination Record Card if visiting for your 2nd dose of the vaccine.

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.
