COVID-19 Vaccine Frequently Asked Questions

Which vaccines have been FDA approved for COVID-19?

The FDA has rigorous scientific and regulatory processes in place to facilitate development and ensure the safety, effectiveness and quality of COVID-19 vaccines. As of August 23, 2021, the FDA has issued full approval of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for use with individuals ages 16 and over, and as of January 31, 2022 has issued full approval for the Moderna vaccine for use in individuals ages 18 and over.
The previously issued Emergency Use Authorizations (EUA) for COVID-19 vaccines manufactured by Pfizer (for ages 5-15 years) and Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen remain in effect. An EUA gives the FDA authority to allow unapproved medical products to be used in emergencies when no approved alternatives are available. Other COVID-19 vaccines are in development and will be reviewed by the FDA under EUA. Find the current status of the vaccine approvals and EUAs. Find the current status of the vaccine approvals and EUAs.

What is the role of CVS Health in administering COVID-19 vaccines?

CVS Health administered more than 32 million COVID-19 tests and more than 59 million COVID-19 vaccines in 2021. The Company maintains a strong commitment to vaccine and testing equity and continues to optimize site locations and targeted outreach initiatives in order to reach vulnerable populations.

Who qualifies for a booster shot?

Following guidelines set by ACIP and the CDC, all individuals who are 5 years of age and older are eligible to receive a single age-appropriate COVID-19 booster shot. Additional recommendations based on age and primary vaccination series are as follows.

Non-immunocompromised patients aged 5 years old and above who received a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 primary vaccine series are eligible for a first booster at least five months after the second primary series dose.
Non-immunocompromised patients aged 18 years old and above who received a Moderna COVID-19 primary vaccine series are eligible for a first booster at least five months after the second primary series dose.
Patients aged 18 years old and above who received a Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) COVID-19 vaccine dose are eligible for a first booster at least two months after their last primary vaccine dose.
Immunocompromised patients who received a Pfizer-BioNTech (12 years old and above) or Moderna (18 years old and above) three-dose primary series (including an additional dose) are eligible for a booster at least three months after their primary vaccine series.
Immunocompromised patients aged 5 to 11 years of age who received a Pfizer-BioNTech three-dose primary series (including an additional dose) are eligible for a booster at least five months after their primary vaccine series.

Eligible individuals do not need to receive a booster shot that matches the formulation of their primary series. Please refer to the CDC Interim Clinical Considerations for COVID-19 Vaccines or your healthcare provider for manufacturer and dose-specific guidance.

Who qualifies for a second booster shot?

Per guidelines set by the CDC, the following individuals are eligible to receive a second mRNA booster dose to increase their protection against severe disease from COVID-19, at least four months after their first booster dose.

Adults ages 50 years and older
Certain immunocompromised individuals aged 12 years old and above
Adults who received a primary vaccine and booster dose of the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine

Can eligible populations receive their booster at CVS?

Moderna booster shots for eligible individuals 18+ and Pfizer-BioNTech booster shots for eligible individuals 5+ are available at select CVS Pharmacy and MinuteClinic locations.
A parent or legal guardian must complete the online registration on CVS.com or Minuteclinic.com for minors up to age 17. Teens 16 and older do not need to be accompanied by an adult to their vaccination appointment, unless required by local or state law.

Is the booster covered by insurance?

Yes, the booster is available at no cost to any eligible patient with most insurance plans or for those uninsured.

How can eligible populations receive their booster at CVS Pharmacy or MinuteClinic?

Patients interested in receiving the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 booster are strongly encouraged to make an appointment at CVS.com. Advanced scheduling is recommended for patients looking to receive a COVID-19 vaccine from a specific manufacturer to ensure that it is available at the clinic of their choice. At this time, each participating CVS Pharmacy is offering either the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine, not both. 

Can eligible individuals receive the COVID-19 vaccine and the seasonal flu vaccine at the same time?

Yes. According to the CDC, eligible individuals, including children, may receive the seasonal flu vaccine at the same time they are receiving the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. There is no need to stagger vaccinations. Additionally, if an individual has already received a flu shot, they can receive their COVID-19 vaccine at any time.

What do I need to know about the COVID-19 variants, including the Delta variant?

According to the CDC, COVID-19 continues to spread in the United States and variants are circulating. You can take steps to protect yourself from the virus and its variants by getting a COVID-19 vaccine and taking other safety precautions including avoiding crowds and washing your hands often. For more information, please see the CDC’s page on variants.

What processes are in place to manage and ensure appropriate administration of the two-dose COVID-19 vaccine?

When patients make an appointment for their initial shot online or through the CVS App, they are prompted to schedule an appointment for their second dose at the same time (if receiving Moderna or Pfizer). The second dose is scheduled within the appropriate timeframe, allowing enough time for a potential reschedule of the appointment, if needed. CVS Health has implemented a detailed tracking system to make sure we know who received which vaccine and to help ensure they get the second dose of the same vaccine, if needed. We are also able to accommodate an extended interval between doses of the primary series for the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines, following recommendations by the CDC for certain populations. Find CDC recommendations for dosing intervals. Patients who wish to extend the interval between their first and second dose based on the new guidance may do so by contacting their local CVS Pharmacy team. Upon receiving their first dose, patients are provided with a vaccine card with all relevant vaccination information. Detailed reporting will be shared with state, local or territorial public health authorities.

The recommended interval between first and second doses of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer and Moderna) has changed? Why?

New data indicate that some people ages 12 through 64 years—and especially males ages 12 through 39 years—would benefit from getting their second mRNA COVID-19 vaccine dose eight (8) weeks after receiving their first dose. Extending the time interval between primary mRNA COVID-19 vaccine doses from the FDA-approved or authorized three (3) weeks (Pfizer-BioNTech) or four (4) weeks (Moderna) to eight (8) weeks may help increase how long protection lasts against COVID-19.
It’s important to note this update does not apply to everyone. The 3-week or 4-week interval is still recommended for people who are moderately or severely immunocompromised, adults ages 65 years and older, and others who may need early protection due to concern about an increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19 or high levels of community transmission. People ages 12 years and older who are moderate or severely immunocompromised should receive three doses in their mRNA primary vaccine series and should receive a booster dose with an mRNA vaccine at least three (3) months after completing their third primary series dose.
Find the new data on dosage intervals for primary COVID-19 vaccine series.

What do I need to do/know about the Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine?

On December 16, 2021, the CDC issued guidance expressing a clinical preference for individuals to receive an mRNA vaccine (e.g., vaccines manufactured by Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech).
The Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines are offered in select CVS locations. Find locations and schedule your vaccination appointment.

Can my 5-15 child receive the COVID-19 vaccine at CVS Pharmacy?

Pediatric doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine are available at select CVS Pharmacy and MinuteClinic locations. We recommend parents and guardians check CVS.com to find locations near them with available appointments.

Is CVS Health offering the COVID-19 vaccine booster for children ages 5 to 11?

Yes. Select CVS Pharmacy and MinuteClinic locations that carry the pediatric dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine offer a booster to children aged 5-11 years old at least five months after completing their primary series, as defined under the guidelines provided by the CDC.

How can I be sure that my local CVS Pharmacy offers the Pfizer vaccine for my child ages 12-15?

At this time, our CVS Pharmacy locations that are currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine have either the Moderna, Pfizer or Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine – not more than one type at this time. Patients are able to see which CVS Pharmacy location has which vaccine and appointment availability on CVS.com before scheduling, which is recommended especially when looking for an appointment for children ages 12–15 that require the Pfizer vaccine. Our online scheduling tool will only display appointments at locations that have the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine once the patient’s age is provided.

Is parental consent required for patients ages 12-17 to receive the COVID-19 vaccine?

Yes, a parent or legal guardian must complete the online registration on cvs.com for minors seeking the COVID-19 vaccine. An adult must accompany children ages 12–15 to the appointment at CVS Pharmacy, but does not need to accompany teens ages 16 and older, unless required by local or state law.

Who is administering the vaccines? Pharmacists? Pharmacy technicians? Other health care providers?

CVS Health immunizers include pharmacists, pharmacy interns and trained pharmacy technicians, as well as other qualified health care professionals depending on each state’s specific regulations. All CVS Health immunizers are certified according to company requirements, trained in the administration of immunizations, and hold an active CPR certification.

Why is it important to get the second shot for the Pfizer and Moderna vaccine?

Both the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines have two doses, with the second dose coming a few weeks after the first. Pfizer-BioNTech’s second dose comes three weeks after the first, and Moderna’s comes four weeks later. The second dose gives people a strong, long-lasting immunity. While these two vaccines include a second dose, the Janssen vaccine (Johnson & Johnson) requires one dose.

Can patients choose which COVID-19 vaccine they receive at CVS Pharmacy?

At this time, our select CVS Pharmacy locations that are currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine to eligible populations have either the Moderna, Pfizer or Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine – not more than one type at this time. Patients will be able to see which CVS Pharmacy location has which vaccine and appointment availability on cvs.com before scheduling. Depending on which vaccine you receive, you will be prompted to schedule a second dose if needed.

Are patients being charged for the vaccine?

The COVID-19 vaccine is available at no cost with most insurance plans or for those uninsured.

Is getting the COVID-19 vaccine safe?

The FDA has authorized three COVID-19 vaccines which have been shown to be safe and effective as determined by data from the manufacturers and findings from large clinical trials. This data demonstrates that the known and potential benefits of this vaccine outweigh the known and potential harms of becoming infected with COVID 19. CVS Health is only administering vaccines that have been authorized for use by the FDA and our COVID-19 vaccination services are being conducted in compliance with CDC guidance for safe delivery of vaccines.

What kind of side effects should people expect from the COVID-19 vaccine?

According to the CDC, you may have some side effects following the COVID-19 vaccine but are generally mild and resolve on their own. Common side effects include pain and swelling on the arm where you got the shot, and fever, chills, tiredness and headache throughout the rest of your body.

How is CVS Health prepared to deal with possible allergic reactions to the vaccine?

CVS Health immunizers are trained in the safe administration of the COVID-19 vaccines authorized for use by the FDA, including identifying and treating allergic reactions. The vaccination procedures include a patient screening checklist to assess the risk of reaction. All patients are monitored for 15 minutes after administration of the injection, or longer for people with a history of severe allergic reactions. Our immunizers are equipped with appropriate medications, such as epinephrine and antihistamines. Further information on COVID-19 Vaccines and allergic reactions can be found here.

Is the COVID-19 vaccine recommended for people who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant?

Yes. As of September 2021, the CDC is strongly recommending that people who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant receive the COVID-19 vaccination. The CDC recommendations align with those from professional medical organizations serving people who are pregnant, including the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the Society for Maternal Fetal Medicine along with many other professional medical organizations. When unvaccinated pregnant people contract COVID-19, they may experience severe disease and higher rates of hospitalization, ICU admission and death than non-pregnant people. More information about COVID-19 vaccines while pregnant, breastfeeding or planning to become pregnant is available here.

Is it safe to get a COVID-19 vaccine when pregnant or planning to become pregnant?

The safety data shows no adverse complications in pregnancy related to the COVID-19 vaccination, including no association with having a miscarriage or impacts on fertility. More information about COVID-19 vaccines while pregnant, breastfeeding or planning to become pregnant is available here.

Am I able to book my first and second dose in two different locations?

Yes, when scheduling an appointment on CVS.com, patients are given a choice of where they’d like to schedule their two appointments (if required).

What type of reminders does CVS Pharmacy send to patients in advance of their scheduled appointments?

Patients receive email and text confirmations for each scheduled dose, as well as reminders that are sent 7 days and 2 days out, and a check-in reminder 15 mins prior to each appointment.

What does the CDC recommend for people who have been fully vaccinated?

On May 13, the CDC updated its guidance for fully vaccinated people including new guidance that fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear a mask or physically distance in any setting, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance. Read the full guidance.

How do I cancel or reschedule my vaccine appointment?

To change or cancel your appointment, please refer to the link in your confirmation text message or email. If you’re changing a COVID-19 second dose appointment, remember, it’s mandatory that the second dose is received within the appropriate time frame in order to be fully vaccinated.

How do I access COVID-19 vaccination records for someone else?

At this time, you may only access your own vaccination records. Any patient age 18 or older must create their own account on Care.CVS.com to access their vaccination records. 

How do I view my minor child’s vaccination records?

Check your email for the COVID-19 vaccination record if both the following conditions apply:

The minor was vaccinated at CVS Pharmacy®
An email address was provided at scheduling/check-in

A record of the vaccination should have been immediately sent to that address. It would have been sent from Pharmacy@Notification.CVSHealth.com with a subject line of “For Your Records.”

Is MinuteClinic offering the COVID-19 vaccine?

The Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines (including booster doses and doses for children ages five to 11) are available at select MinuteClinic locations, CVS Health’s retail medical clinic. Select MinuteClinic locations will continue to offer the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine.
See a list of eligible MinuteClinic locations.

Will all CVS Pharmacy and MinuteClinic locations offer the COVID-19 vaccine to children ages five to 11 years?

No. Vaccines for eligible patients 5 to 11 years of age are initially available at a select number of CVS Pharmacy and MinuteClinic locations, based on the initial allocation from the Federal Government. Not every location will have the vaccine immediately available upon authorization, so parents and guardians are strongly encouraged to visit CVS.com or to use the CVS App to schedule an appointment. The scheduling tool will only display appointments at CVS Pharmacy locations that have the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for children ages five to 11 years once the patient’s age is provided.
As vaccine allocation increases, additional CVS Pharmacy and MinuteClinic locations will be added, and online scheduling tools will be updated regularly to reflect the new stores with available appointments.

Disclaimers:

1 For COVID-19 vaccine cost: The COVID-19 vaccine is currently available at select CVS Pharmacy® locations and is no cost with most insurance plans or for those uninsured.

2 FOR MINUTECLINIC AVAILABILITY: Vaccine available at select MinuteClinic® locations.

3 FOR VACCINE ADMINISTRATION GUIDELINES: All CVS Health certified immunizers are trained in the administration of vaccines and hold an active CPR certification.

4 FOR SECOND PRIMARY DOSE: An 8-week interval may be optimal for some people age 12 and older, especially for males ages 12 to 39. A shorter interval (3 weeks for Pfizer-BioNTech; 4 weeks for Moderna) between the first and second doses remains the recommended interval for people who are moderately to severely immunocompromised; adults age 65 and older; and others who need rapid protection due to increased concern about community transmission or risk of severe disease.

5 FOR ADDITIONAL DOSE: Only Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine should be used.

6 FOR FIRST BOOSTER DOSE: Any COVID-19 vaccine can be used for the booster dose in people age 18 and older, though Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna are preferred. For people ages 5-17, only Pfizer-BioNTech can be used. People under 5 should not receive a booster dose. Immunocompromised patients age 5-11 who are eligible to receive a booster sooner than 5 months from completion of their primary series will be required to schedule digitally or via our call center 1-800-746-7287.

7 FOR SECOND BOOSTER DOSE: Only Pfizer or Moderna (mRNA vaccines) should be used.

8 FOR JOHNSON & JOHNSON (JANSSEN): The Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine is not available at CVS Pharmacy® or MinuteClinic®.
