What Are The Benefits Of Getting A COVID-19 Vaccine?
Some people may be concerned about receiving a COVID-19 vaccination. However, there are many reasons to get vaccinated - Learn More.
Vaccine Distribution And Eligibility
The preliminary supply of vaccine is expected to be limited and will be reserved for the highest risk health care workers and those most at risk for becoming severely sick or dying from COVID-19. Vaccine distribution in each state is determined by state and local health departments and is broken down into phases due to limited initial availability. There will be zero out-of-pocket cost to get vaccinated for all Americans.
Where Will COVID-19 Vaccinations Be Given?
Tri-State Pharmacies (Abts Pharmacy, Bemis Drug, Rawhide Drug, Register Cliff Pharmacy, and Vandel Drug) will be administering the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as it is available. Please check back with us for updates.
COVID-19 Vaccine Cost
There will be zero out-of-pocket cost to get vaccinated for all Americans. Medicare, Medicaid, other public low-cost insurance plans, and private insurance are required to cover the cost of the COVID-19 vaccines. Uninsured Americans will have access to free COVID-19 vaccine.

Questions & Answers About COVID-19 Vaccine And Its Administration
Q: How does the vaccine work? Does this vaccine contain live virus? Is it inactivated?
A: mRNA vaccines (Pfizer and Moderna) do not contain a live virus and do not carry a risk of causing disease. In contrast, most vaccines use weakened or inactivated versions or components of the disease-causing pathogen to stimulate the body's immune response to create antibodies.
Q: Is the vaccine that helpful? I heard getting COVID-19 gives you better and longer immunity than the protection a vaccine can give. Can it actually make my illness worse if I do end up getting COVID-19?
A: Both this disease and the vaccine are new. We don't know how long protection lasts for those who get infected or those who are vaccinated. What we do know is that COVID-19 has caused very serious illness and death for a lot of people. If you get COVID-19, you also risk giving it to loved ones who may get very sick. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine is a safer choice.
Q: Can it actually make my illness worse if I do end up getting COVID-19?
A: Nearly all COVID-19 vaccines being studied in the United States require two shots. The first shot starts building protection, but you must receive a second shot a few weeks later to get the most protection the vaccine can offer.
