ICHS is distributing free, rapid at-home COVID-19 test kits to ICHS patients at clinic sites. Supplies are limited and are reserved for patients who have previously scheduled appointments. Test kits may also be given to non-ICHS patients who receive a COVID-19 vaccine at clinic pharmacy sites based upon supply.

How to get your vaccine and what to expect

ICHS is administering COVID-19 vaccines for individuals five and older. COVID-19 vaccines are free of charge, regardless of immigration or health insurance status.

Please bring your ID and insurance card if you have health insurance. Also bring your CDC vaccination record card if you are receiving your second, booster, or additional vaccine.

You will be given vaccine safety information when you arrive. After you receive your vaccine, ICHS staff will observe you for 15 minutes. If you have a history of allergies or allergic reactions, we will observe you for 30 minutes.

Which vaccines are offered at ICHS?

Primary series: ICHS administers Pfizer-BioNTech for the primary series of vaccinations. Children ages 5-11 receive pediatric doses of the Pfizer vaccine. ICHS does not administer Moderna or Johnson & Johnson for the primary series.

Boosters: ICHS administers Pfizer and Moderna for booster shots. ICHS does not administer Johnson & Johnson for booster doses. 

Additional doses for immunocompromised: ICHS administers Pfizer as an additional dose for immunocompromised individuals. ICHS does not administer Moderna or Johnson & Johnson as additional doses for immunocompromised individuals.

ICHS patients should call (206) 788-3700 to make an appointment. Scheduled appointments are only available for ICHS patients.

    Second doses for primary series

    Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna are both two-dose vaccines. It is very important that you receive your second dose in order to be fully vaccinated. ICHS will schedule your second dose after your first shot.

    • If you receive the Pfizer vaccine, we will schedule your second shot 21 days later at the same location.
    • If you receive the Moderna vaccine, we will schedule your second shot 28 days later at the same location.

    ICHS administers Pfizer for additional doses. ICHS currently does not offer the Johnson & Johnson or Moderna vaccine for primary series.

    Additional dose for immunocompromised

    The FDA and CDC have authorized third doses for anyone who has been vaccinated with either Pfizer or Moderna shots and has a compromised immune system due to chronic illnesses, transplant surgery or cancer treatment, among others.

    This is because some immunocompromised people did not mount a good response to the vaccine. A third shot of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer or Moderna), which is identical to the first two doses, ensures that they are protected.

    CDC recommends that a third dose is received at least 28 days after completing a previous two-dose series. A person’s primary care provider is best positioned to determine whether a third dose is appropriate, as well as when it should be given.

    ICHS administers Pfizer as an additional dose for immunocompromised. ICHS does not administer Moderna or Johnson & Johnson for additional doses.

    Everyone ages 12 and older should get a booster shot

    The CDC recommends that everyone 12 years and older get a COVID-19 vaccine booster dose. Public health experts have found that protection from initial doses decreases over time. A booster shot improves your immunity and protection from COVID-19. 

    • If you are aged 12 to 17: at this time, only the Pfizer vaccine is authorized and recommended for adolescents
    • If you got either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine: you should wait five months or more after your second dose to get your booster.
    • If you got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine: you should wait two months or more after your initial dose to get your booster.

    After reviewing vaccine safety and effectiveness data, the CDC has found that “mixing and matching” a different booster shot from your original vaccination is safe and effective. For example, someone who was vaccinated with Moderna may choose to get a Moderna, Pfizer, or Johnson & Johnson booster.

    ICHS administers Pfizer and Moderna for booster shots. ICHS does not administer Johnson & Johnson for booster doses.
