Frequently asked questions
Is the COVID-19 vaccine safe and effective?
Vaccination is the safest way to protect yourself from COVID-19. We know this disease can make you very sick or even kill you. Three independent groups of scientists checked to make sure COVID-19 vaccines work and are safe before the U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorized them for emergency use. Oregon teamed up with neighboring states for one more review to make sure the vaccines here meet the highest standards. All of the authorized vaccines are effective, especially at preventing serious illness and death.
Which vaccine does La Clinica give?
Can I get COVID-19 from the vaccine?
No. None of the authorized vaccines have live coronavirus, the virus that causes COVID-19, in them. The vaccines cannot make you sick with COVID-19. Like many vaccines, COVID-19 vaccinations might give you a sore arm and even some redness or swelling where the shot was given. Some people also have tiredness, headache, joint or muscle pain, fever, or chills. These are signs the vaccine is working and your body is gearing up to protect you. You might have more symptoms after your second dose, but it is important to get both shots.
How much does COVID-19 vaccination cost?
It is available at no cost to you. If you have insurance, La Clinica will bill your insurance for giving the shots. If you don’t have insurance, a federal fund will cover the cost.
After I’m vaccinated can I stop wearing a mask, hug friends and family who don’t live with me, go to restaurants, and travel?
Protection is strong two weeks after you complete your vaccination, so you can resume many activities then without taking extra precautions. Please continue to follow safety guidelines and wear masks where required, such as in health centers and on planes, trains, and buses.
