ICHS is administering COVID-19 vaccines for individuals six months and older

We each have a responsibility to ensure that those around us are protected. We reduce COVID-19 transmission by being vaccinated, protecting ourselves, our loved ones, and our community. 

Unvaccinated adults are four times more likely to test positive and 15 times more likely to die from COVID-19 than those who are vaccinated, according to the CDC. Getting vaccinated also significantly reduces COVID-related hospital admissions, saving capacity for people with urgent non-COVID care needs.

What to expect

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 or booster 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.

ICHS patients can receive COVID-19 vaccines during your appointment with an ICHS provider, or by scheduling a vaccination appointment in one of our clinics over the phone. Please note that scheduled appointments are only available for ICHS patients. Please call 206.788.3700 to make an appointment. 

    Second doses for primary series

    Pfizer-BioNTech is a two-dose vaccine. 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 21 days later at the same location.

      Additional dose for immunocompromised

      If you are moderately or severely immunocompromised (have a weakened immune system), you are at increased risk of severe COVID-19 illness and death. Additionally, your immune response to COVID-19 vaccination may not be as strong as in people who are not immunocompromised.

      Use CDC’s COVID-19 booster tool to learn if and when you can get boosters to stay up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines.

      Everyone ages 5 and older should get a booster shot

      The CDC recommends that everyone 5 years and older get a COVID-19 vaccine booster dose. Health experts have found that protection from initial doses decreases over time. The COVID-19 Bivalent Booster vaccines are designed to specifically target the Omicron subvariants of the virus that are accounting for the great majority of infections in the U.S. 

      Getting a booster shot means better protection for you, your family, and our entire community.

      The case for COVID-19 booster shots

      Studies show after getting vaccinated against COVID-19, protection against the virus and the ability to prevent infection with variants may decrease over time and be less effective against the Omicron variant. However, a booster vaccine dose can increase protection against symptomatic Omicron infection from about 35% to 76% and can have even higher effectiveness at preventing hospitalizations and death.

      After completing the primary series, some moderately or severely immunocompromised people should get an additional primary shot. Everyone ages 5 and older can get a booster after they have had their primary vaccine series. 

      A second booster shot is now recommended for the following groups:

      • Anyone age 50 and older may get a 2nd booster at least 4 months after their 1st booster
      • Anyone age 18 and older with certain medical conditions may get a second booster at least 4 months after their 1st booster- Moderna COVID-19 shot.
      • Anyone age 12 and older with certain medical conditions may get a second booster at least 4 months after their 1st booster- Pfizer COVID-19 shot.

      'Mixing and matching'

      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 for booster shots. ICHS does not administer Moderna or Johnson & Johnson for booster doses.

      ICHS is now administering Novavax COVID-19 vaccines at ICHS pharmacies. 

      As a safe and effective vaccine, Novavax is authorized as a 2-dose primary series only for ages 12+. Not as a booster shot at this time.
