Did you get your COVID-19 vaccine?
CMC now offers the COVID-19 vaccine to our patients ages 5 and older. You can schedule an appointment by calling your CMC Primary Care office, or ask your provider about getting the shot at your next visit.

There are many vaccine locations across the State offering first dose and second dose appointments, and many locations offer walk-in service without the need for an appointment. We understand that some people may be concerned about getting vaccinated. While these vaccines are being developed as quickly as possible, routine processes and procedures remain in place to ensure the safety of any vaccine that is authorized or approved for use.

what you need to know

Benefits
  • Vaccination will help you build protection against COVID-19 and help prevent you from becoming sick and potentially spreading the virus to others. Since there is no cure for COVID-19, prevention of infection is the primary way to reduce the spread of illness.
  • Based on what we know about vaccines for other diseases, experts believe that getting a COVID-19 vaccine may help keep you from getting seriously ill even if you do get COVID-19.
  • Getting vaccinated yourself may also protect people around you, particularly people at increased risk.
Cost
  • There will be no cost to you. Vaccine doses purchased with U.S. taxpayer dollars will be given to the American people at no cost. 
  • Vaccination providers may be able to charge administration fees for giving the shot. Vaccination providers can get this fee reimbursed by the patient’s public or private insurance company or, for uninsured patients, by the Health Resources and Services Administration’s Provider Relief Fund.
