What You Should Know About

COVID-19 Vaccine at Vickery Vaccine Services

We understand that some people may be concerned about getting vaccinated now that COVID-19 vaccines are available in the United States. With Pennsylvania using a phase based approach to distributing vaccines, it can be difficult to know when the vaccine will be available to you.

Understanding The Distribution Phases

The COVID-19 vaccine will be distributed to Pennsylvanians in a phased approach. For the most accurate and up-to-date information about the distribution plan, visit the Pennsylvania Department of Health website.


Testing for Covid-19

KNOW THE SYMPTOMS

The main symptoms of COVID-19 are:

  • Cough
  • Fever
  • Shortness of breath

KNOW WHEN TO SEEK HELP

Not everyone who is sick needs to be tested.

Your local health department or healthcare provider can help you:

  • Decide if you need an appointment
  • Plan to enter a clinic in a way that avoids possibly infecting others, if you do go in

If you need urgent medical care, dial 911.


KNOW QUESTIONS YOUR HEALTH CARE PROVIDER MAY ASK YOU

  • What are your symptoms?
  • Have you traveled to places where COVID-19 is present?
  • Did you have contact with someone who has traveled where COVID-19 is present?
  • Have you been in contact with someone who has a confirmed case of COVID-19?

Health care coverage for COVID-19 testing

Your health care coverage may cover the cost of:

  • COVID-19 testing at an in-network provider, in-network urgent care center, or emergency room
  • COVID-19 immunization when it becomes available

Outside of COVID-19 testing, regular costs, such as co-payments, co-insurance, and deductibles will still apply. It is always best to contact your plan to find out about your costs.
