Get Your COVID-19 Vaccine

ICHS Vax-92

Stay safe! Get your bivalent COVID-19 booster with ICHS. Available for everyone five years of age and older, two months after 2nd dose or last booster.

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 and boosted, protecting ourselves, our loved ones, and our community. 

Unvaccinated people aged 6 months and older are 2.7 times more likely to test positive and 5 times more likely to die from COVID-19 than those who are vaccinated with at least a primary series, according to the CDC. Unvaccinated people aged 5 years and older are 2.3 times more likely to test positive and 7 times more likely to die from COVID-19 compared to people vaccinated with a primary series and 1+ booster dose.

Dr. Lakshmi Deepa Yerram, ICHS chief medical officer, emphasizes the importance of vaccinating our youngest children against COVID-19. She also advocates that everyone who is eligible should get the updated bivalent booster.

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.

'Primary' series doses

The Pfizer-BioNTech is designed as a two-dose vaccine for individuals ages 5 and older. 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. These are called 'primary series' doses. 

For children age 6 months to 4 years, a third dose 3-8 weeks is recommended as the 'primary series'. The COVID-19 bivalent (Omicron) booster is offered as the third dose in order to build immunity to the virus. 

    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.

    Have you or your child had COVID-19?

    The CDC says that you may consider delaying the next COVID-19 vaccine dose by 3 months after symptoms started or, if they had no symptoms, when they first received a positive test.

    Everyone ages five years and older should get a bivalent booster shot

    As the virus evolves, so should our protection. The updated bivalent booster vaccines are designed to specifically target COVID’s fast spreading Omicron subvariants. Omicron is accounting for the great majority of infections in the U.S. This means better protection for you, your family, and our entire community. 

    Getting a booster is the most effective way to bolster your protection against the virus.

    Check out the chart below to see if you or your child are eligible for one or more booster doses of a COVID-19 vaccine.*

    *People who recently had SARS-CoV-2 infection may consider delaying their COVID-19 primary or booster dose by 3 months from symptom onset or positive test (if infection was asymptomatic). Individual factors such as risk of COVID-19 severe disease, COVID-19 community level, or characteristics of the predominant SARSCoV-2 strain should be taken into account when determining whether to delay getting a booster dose after infection.


    '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 safely choose to get a Pfizer booster.
