What is a booster vaccine?

A booster vaccine can be quite a confusing term. It is important to understand that a booster dose and an additional dose are different from each other, depending on who is receiving it.
For people with immunocompromised conditions who are not able to build enough immunity, the third COVID vaccine dose is an extra dose that can help build stronger protection against the virus.
Nao Medical accepted insurances

FAQ

Is it recommended to take antibody tests after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine?

It is not recommended to take antibody tests after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine to test for immunity. It is also not recommended for use to assess a person’s need for vaccination or quarantine.

Who can get a COVID-19 vaccine booster?

Not everyone can get a COVID-19 vaccine booster immediately. For now, individuals aged 12 years old and older who have medical conditions, undergoing treatment, or taking medications that may be compromising their immunity are eligible for a booster shot. You can get a COVID-19 booster shot if:

  • You are undergoing active treatment for cancer
  • You underwent an organ transplant and is still in immunosuppressive therapy
  • You had a stem cell transplant within two years prior
  • You have a primary immunodeficiency
  • You have advanced or untreated HIV
  • You are undergoing treatment that involves high doses of corticosteroids
  • You are taking medications that may weaken the immune system

What is the Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine – BNT162b2?

The first-ever COVID vaccine to get an EUA from the FDA, this injectable has a 95% efficacy, providing strong protection against the virus after two shots.

Based on clinical trials, there had been no significant adverse effects on the volunteers who were able to receive the vaccine in the United States, Brazil, and Argentina. The vaccine also works on most individuals, regardless of race, weight, and age. Despite this, the FDA only approves administration to people 16 years and older.

What is the Moderna vaccine – mRNA-1273?

Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine is expected to acquire authorization from the FDA soon. It uses a similar mRNA technology as that of Pfizer’s vaccine, generating a 94.1% efficacy rate based on the latest clinical trial analysis. 

Some of the vaccinated volunteers across the US reported mild, non-life-threatening side effects. One advantage of this vaccine over Pfizer’s is that it can be stored in normal refrigeration temperatures, making it easier to store and transport.

What is the AstraZeneca-Oxford vaccine – AZD1222?

Despite the high efficacy rates of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, AstraZeneca’s COVID-10 vaccine might make a bigger impact worldwide. Developed in partnership with Oxford University, it only reached 70% efficacy during its Phase 3 testing stage. 

That is still acceptable since the FDA advisory committee only requires at least 50% for approval. This vaccine is also a lot less expensive than the two leading vaccines, making it suitable for distribution to lower-income countries.

Is the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine safe?

The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is safe. Almost all the ingredients of COVID vaccines are found in food items—fats, salts, and sugars. The piece of messenger RNA (mRNA) it contains is also harmless.

Who should not take the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine?

People should not take the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine if they have a severe allergy to any of the vaccine’s ingredients, such as polyethylene glycol. If an individual suffers from a severe allergic reaction after the first dose, it is not recommended to get a second dose.

What are the common side effects of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine?

The most common side effects of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine that were reported were pain and discomfort at the injection site, fatigue, headache, muscle pain, fever, chills, and joint pain. Most of the side effects resolve a day or two later.

What are the common side effects of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine?

The common side effects of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine are discomfort at the injection site, fatigue, headache, muscle and joint pain, chills, fever, nausea, and vomiting.

Why are Moderna COVID-19 vaccine side effects worse after the second shot?

Moderna COVID-19 vaccine side effects are worse after the second shot because the immune system already recognizes the virus spike protein from the first and second dose, thus creating a stronger response.

Are egg products used in COVID-19 vaccines?

Egg products are not used in COVID-19 vaccines. All the vaccines authorized by the FDA, including the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, do not have egg by-products or egg culture in them.

Made an appointment for a Rapid Test. Came here exactly on time and I was greeted by a 7 person line outside. There was a great host who was entertaining us and updating everyone on who is next. The line also extended inside. But all together it was efficient. I mean I waited 30 minutes on a line. Once inside I was seen moderately quickly and had my result in 20 minutes. Considering the current state of the world, I was happy with my experience, just wish they could have been alittle more informative with how long the wait was.
