New York State COVID-19 Vaccine FAQs 

Yates County Vaccination Clinic FAQs                

  • Do I have to have an appointment to get vaccinated?
    • Yes, registration is highly recommended to receive the vaccine. We do also allow walk-ins at our clinics. 
  • How will I find out when registration for more clinics becomes available? 
    • Each time we receive a shipment of vaccine from the State, we will open registration for additional clinics.  We will announce registration through our website and facebook page. 
  • What do I need to bring to my appointment? 
    • Make sure you wear a short sleeve shirt that will allow vaccinators access to your upper arm
    • Bring your photo ID
    • If you are eligible due to age, you should bring a form of ID (drivers license or passport) that includes your date of birth 
  • What are some other ways I can get vaccinated? 
    • Pharmacists are able to vaccinate anyone 12 years and older. 
  • Do I have to pay to get the vaccine? 
    • No, there is no cost or co-pay for the vaccine.
  • Can I transfer my registration to someone else?
    • No – appointments are not transferrable. If you cannot make your appointment time, you should cancel and re-register sometime in the future.
  • How soon after getting vaccinated am I protected from COVID-19?
    • The COVID-19 vaccine, like all vaccines, does not instantly provide protection. It takes time for your immune system to respond to the vaccine and develop disease-fighting antibodies.   
  • Can you tell more about the vaccines that are currently available in the US? 
    • Moderna
      • Second dose is required 28 days after your first dose
      • Found to be 95% effective starting 14 days after the second dose. 
    • Pfizer
      • Second dose is required 21 days after your first dose
      • Found to be 95% effective starting 7 days after the second dose.
    • Janssen and Janssen ( J&J)
      • Only one dose is required. 
      • Found to be 67% effective at preventing moderate to severe illness starting 14 days after vaccination and 85% effective 28 days after vaccination. 
  • What should I expect after I get vaccinated?
    • You will need to wait for 15 minutes after you get your vaccine.  
    • Like all vaccines and other medications, there is a chance you might experience some symptoms after you get it.  There is a possibility that you might feel some fatigue or some pain or muscle soreness at the injection site - you could even have a fever. These are signs that the vaccine is working, and your immune system is responding to the vaccine and learning how to fight off the virus.  Mild pain relievers should help you feel better. If you don't feel better within two or three days, you should follow up with your doctor
  • How will I get my second dose of vaccine? 

    • People will be expected to get their second dose of vaccine through the same vaccinator that provided their first dose. You will receive information on how to schedule your second dose at your appointment for your first dose.
