Frequently Asked Questions
What is a booster shot and do I qualify?
A booster shot is an additional dose of a vaccine. A booster is designed to help people maintain their level of immunity for longer. The CDC now recommends an updated Bivalent Covid-19 Booster for individuals ages 5 and up. Click Here to learn more about COVID-19 Vaccine Boosters.
Do I need the same type of booster as my original vaccine or last booster?
The CDC allows patients to “mix and match” boosters, meaning that any patient who was vaccinated and qualifies for a booster can choose to receive any approved booster regardless of the type of vaccine initially administered.
Do you offer COVID Vaccines for kids?
We offer the COVID Vaccine and Boosters to kids ages 5 and up. Contact your pediatrician about the COVID Vaccine for kids ages 6 months to 4 years old.
Can I get my COVID Vaccine (or booster) at the same time as my flu shot?
Yes. The CDC states that individuals can get a COVID Vaccine (and other vaccines including a flu shot) at the same time. Experience with other vaccines has shown that the way our bodies develop protection, known as an immune response, and possible side effects after getting vaccinated are generally the same when given alone or with other vaccines.
How do I schedule a vaccine or booster?
Patients are not required to schedule COVID-19 vaccines or boosters. Vaccines and boosters are offered on a walk-in basis through St. James Urgent Care every Thursday from 8am to 8pm.
