Am I Eligible for the COVID Vaccine?

In Chicago COVID Vaccine eligibility is determined by the latest guidelines from the CDC. As of April 15, 2021, all adults above the age of 18 are eligible to receive the COVID vaccine, provided they are not allergic to any of the ingredients in the vaccine.

What is the COVID vaccine?

At WCT, we will be offering all FDA-cleared COVID vaccine options.

The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID vaccine is a saline-diluent vaccine that requires two doses administered over 21 days. The Moderna COVID vaccine is not mixed with a diluent and requires two doses administered over 28 days. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is a single dose vaccine.

Both vaccines help the body develop an immunity to the virus that causes COVID, without having to get the illness. In the weeks after the initial dose, the body begins to recognize the illness and prepare to fight it. The second dose ramps up the development of helpful lymphocytes that fight off the virus should you be exposed. Both doses are essential to make sure the vaccine is effective.

NOTE

YOU ARE NOT FULLY IMMUNIZED AGAINST COVID UNTIL 14 DAYS AFTER YOUR SECOND DOSE.
