ICHS Vax-92

ICHS is distributing free, rapid at-home COVID-19 test kits to ICHS patients with scheduled appointments at clinic sites. 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

We each have a responsibility to ensure that those around us are protected and we help reduce COVID-19 transmission by being vaccinated. This is the only way we can halt the pandemic and ensure the health of our family members, friends and neighbors. 

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.

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 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.

Non-ICHS patients can walk in at ICHS pharmacies for a vaccination

    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 for booster shots. ICHS does not administer Moderna or 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 21 days later at the same location.

      *See below for schedule for people who are moderately or severely immunocompromised.

      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.

      COVID-19 vaccination schedule for people who are moderately or severely immunocompromised

      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. Public health experts have found that protection from initial doses decreases over time. A booster shot improves your immunity and protection from COVID-19.

      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.
