COVID Vaccine Information

A- A A+

Here is our own Dr. James Lenhart offering proof that vaccines work in fighting deadly diseases, like COVID-19.

Here at Community Health Care, we want to assist all of our patients who want a vaccine for Coronavirus (COVID-19) with getting a vaccine. We will also conduct outreach vaccine events throughout the county for anyone eligible who wants a vaccine.
We are currently offering Pfizer and Moderna vaccine at our vaccination locations. Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine may be available, but available supply is limited.

VACCINE APPOINTMENT

Am I Eligible to Receive a Vaccine?

Right now, you are eligible for a vaccine if you are 12 years old or older. 

If you are a Community Health Care patient, call your clinic to schedule a vaccine appointment, or ask if you can get your vaccine at your next regularly scheduled appointment.

Community Health Care is able to vaccinate people age 12 years and older. We are providing Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccine depending upon supply availability.

You can find appointments for Pfizer (12 and older), Johnson & Johnson and Moderna (18 and older) on the Washington State Vaccine Locator Page.

COVID Vaccines at Community Health Care

You must be eligible and we recommend that you have an appointment to participate in the community vaccine clinic events.

Vaccination clinics are subject to change due to vaccine supply. If we do not receive the vaccine supply the event and your appointment will be canceled.

Community Health Care is holding limited vaccine clinic events. Patients are notified of vaccine clinics through the Patient Portal, text messages, and phone calls. Please do not call the regular appointment line to schedule a COVID-19 vaccine. If no times are available on the registration form, all appointments are filled.

The Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are a 2 dose vaccine. If you received your first dose with Community Health Care we will schedule you approximately 3 weeks later for Pfizer or 4 weeks later for Moderna. The second dose can be administered up to 6 weeks after your first dose. You will receive an email or phone call to confirm your second appointment. If you get your second dose at another location, please contact us to cancel your next appointment.

The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is a single dose vaccine. If you receive the Johnson & Johnson vaccine from Community Health Care you will not need a second dose.

Where Can I Get Vaccinated?

There are many organizations that are offering vaccines to eligible persons. The best place to start would be to contact your primary care provider to see if they are offering vaccinations. If they are not, go to the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department webpage for a list of locations. You can also use the Washington State Department of Health Vaccine Locator. Most locations will require you to register or make an appointment. If your preferred location is out of appointments, check back often, as more vaccines are becoming available all the time.
