CommUnityCare offers the COVID Vaccine to open to anyone 12 years of age and older. A parent or guardian must be present for those under the age of 18. Both the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are offered, however Pfizer is the only vaccine available for those between the ages of 12-17 at this time.
For Community Care Patients
COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective and free for anyone over the age of 16. Current patients can schedule an appointment through My Chart.
BOOSTERS FOR PFIZER-BIONTECH VACCINE PATIENTS ARE AVAILABLE STARTING 9/27/21
The CDC now recommends a single Pfizer booster dose for those who have completed their primary Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine series at least 6 months ago AND are either:
- 65 years of age and older
- residents of long-term care facilities
- aged 50-64 with an underlying medical condition
- aged 18-49 with an underlying medical condition who want a booster vaccine based on individual assessment of benefit and risk
- aged 18-64 who are in an occupational or institutional setting where the burden of COVID-19 infection and risk of transmission is high (including but not limited to healthcare workers, first responders, and teachers).
Administration of booster vaccines for our patients and the community at CommUnityCare will commence on Monday, 9/27/21. Patients can receive their booster at their home clinic; the broader community can receive their booster vaccine at Rosewood Zaragosa, North Central or Southeast Health and Wellness Center.
We anticipate additional guidance in the coming weeks for individuals who have been vaccinated with Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines.

Helping Our Most Vulnerable Communities
Central Health and CommUnityCare are committed to making the vaccine available to as many people as possible – specifically to people most impacted most by COVID-19.
We are working to distribute the vaccine equitably and are following strict CDC/DSHS protocols to ensure those who are most vulnerable receive the vaccine as quickly as possible.
Central Health and CommUnityCare will continue to coordinate with other safety net providers to focus on areas (ZIP codes) with people most disproportionately affected by COVID-19 and other serious disease, and death.
This includes people of color, people with low income, people living in areas with the highest rates of COVID-19, and people without transportation.

COVID-19 vaccines are safe.
The U.S. vaccine safety system ensures all approved COVID-19 vaccines go through testing and clinical trials before they are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for distribution.
The vaccine cannot give you COVID-19.
The vaccine does not include the live virus that causes COVID-19. Sometimes the vaccine can cause mild, short-term symptoms like pain where you get the shot, fever, chills, headaches or make you feel tired. These symptoms are normal and are a sign that your body is building immunity.
Everyone needs the vaccine – even if you’ve had COVID-19.
The best way to stop the pandemic is to take every precaution including getting a vaccine, wearing a mask, washing your hands often, and keeping at least six feet apart from others. When it’s your turn, get the vaccine.
How does the vaccine work?
A vaccine prepares your immune system so your body will be ready to fight the virus in case you are exposed. Depending on the vaccine you receive, a second dose is required in 2 – 3 weeks. You will receive a reminder to schedule a second vaccine the same way you received your confirmation about the first dose.
Even when you get the vaccine, keep wearing a mask.
Once you get the vaccine, keep wearing a mask, washing your hands, and watching your distance. The vaccine can keep you from getting sick, but you could still get infected with coronavirus. And if you’re infected, you can spread COVID-19 to others.
Second Dose Information
When a CommUnityCare patient gets their first vaccine dose, they’ll also get an appointment for a second dose.
If you didn’t get an appointment for a second dose, email: email@example.com.
If you are not a CommUnityCare patient, please contact the organization that provided your first vaccine dose.
