Who Qualifies? People with moderately to severely compromised immune systems are especially vulnerable to COVID-19, and may not build the same level of immunity to the 2-dose vaccine series compared to people who are not immunocompromised. CDC recommends that people with moderately to severely compromised immune systems receive an additional dose of mRNA COVID-19 vaccine at least 28 days after the second dose of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine or Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine. This additional dose is intended to improve immunocompromised people’s response to their initial vaccine series Vaccine Card At your first vaccination appointment, you should have received a vaccination card that tells you which COVID-19 vaccine you received, the date you received it, and where you received it. Bring this to your additional dose vaccination appointment. You may experience side effects after getting a COVID-19 vaccine. These are normal signs that your body is building protection. Get helpful tips on how to reduce any pain or discomfort. Do you qualify? 65 years or older. Age 18+ who live in long-term care settings. Age 18+ who have underlying medical conditions.

CDC Recommends: When visiting your healthcare provider, you should follow CDC recommendations to protect yourself and others from COVID-19. At this time, CDC recommends that everyone in a healthcare setting wear a mask and practice physical distancing. If you are recommended to be in isolation or quarantine, you should not visit your healthcare provider for routine medical procedures or screenings. Before your appointment, it is okay to ask if your healthcare provider is vaccinated or if the healthcare facility requires COVID-19 vaccines for staff.

If you receive a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, you will need 2 shots to get the most protection. Who's available to get the vaccine in Arkansas? All Arkansans age 5 or older are now eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine. Ages 18+ are approved to receive the Moderna vaccine. COVID-19 vaccines are not interchangeable. If you received a Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, you should get the same product for your second shot. The CDC recommends that you should get your second shot even if you have side effects after the first shot unless a vaccination provider or your doctor tells you not to get it. You Should Know: If you have a weakened immune system due to other diseases or medications, you can receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Ask your doctor if you will have a severe or immediate allergic reaction to any of the ingredients in the vaccine based on your medical record. People with moderately to severely compromised immune systems should receive an additional dose of mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (i.e., Pfizer or Moderna) after the first 2 doses. Certain groups of people who received both doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine are eligible to get a Pfizer booster shot. Timeframe For Second Dose For Both Vaccines Pfizer - CDC Recommends getting your second shot 3 weeks (or 21 days) after your first Moderna - CDC Recommends getting your second shot 4 weeks (or 28 days) after your first

Health Literacy is the degree to which individuals can find, understand, and use information and services to make informed health-related decisions and actions for themselves and others. It is important that individuals have a high degree of health literacy to not only know how to access information but also understand the information and services given to them that relate to their health. Being health literate gives individuals the independence needed to make their own decisions about health-related information or services. We are working in Pine Bluff to increase health literacy awareness not only for healthcare services and information but also in the areas that are urgent including COVID-19, vaccinations, and combating major health issues faced within the community.
