Which COVID-19 vaccine will I receive?
The Vaccination Clinic is currently administering the following vaccine type(s)*:
- Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine (two-dose vaccine currently FDA approved for patients ages 16+ and approved under emergency use authorization [EUA] for individuals 5 through 15 years of age). Vaccine appointments are currently available for individuals ages 5+, subject to availability and supply levels.
- Moderna vaccine (two-dose vaccine currently FDA approved for patients ages 18+).
- Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine (single-dose vaccine for patients ages 18+).
*Vaccine type is subject to change based upon supply levels and doses allocated by the State of Idaho. If your vaccine type requires two doses, you will receive the same type of vaccine during each vaccine appointment.
If you received a J&J/Janssen vaccine, here is what you need to know. CDC and FDA have recommended that the use of Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen (J&J/Janssen) COVID-19 Vaccine may resume in the United States, effective April 23, 2021. However, women, especially those under 50 years old, should be aware of the rare risk of blood clots with low platelets after vaccination, and that other COVID-19 vaccines are available where this risk has not been seen. Read the CDC/FDA statement.
What to expect during your vaccination appointment
- Immediately alert staff if you are experiencing any signs or symptoms of COVID-19. Individuals are required to wear a facial covering and observe physical distancing when visiting the clinic.
- Arrive on time for your vaccination appointment as scheduled.
- You will be able to download or receive a paper copy of the fact sheet that tells you more about the specific COVID-19 vaccine you are being offered. Each authorized COVID-19 vaccine has its own fact sheet that contains information to help you understand the risks and benefits of receiving that specific vaccine.
- You should receive a vaccination card or print out during your appointment that tells you what COVID-19 vaccine you received, the date you received it, and where you received it. Save this documentation as a record of your vaccination(s) and be sure to bring it with you to your second dose appointment, if applicable.
- Information will be provided to you about V-safe— an optional, free, smartphone-based tool that lets you check-in with the CDC after you get vaccinated for COVID-19. You can quickly tell the CDC if you have any side effects after getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Depending on your answers, someone from the CDC may call to check on you and get more information. V-safe will also remind you to get your second COVID-19 vaccine dose if you need one.
- You should stay at the vaccination clinic for 15-30 minutes after you get the vaccine to make sure you do not have an adverse reaction that needs medical attention. Clinic staff will be standing by to assist you.
- It’s normal to have mild to moderate side effects for a few days after getting a vaccine.
- It takes time for your body to build immunity and protection after any vaccination. You are considered immune two weeks after you get your last dose (second dose in a two-dose series or one dose of a single-dose vaccine) of the vaccine.
How much will the COVID-19 vaccine cost?
The cost of COVID-19 vaccines is free for everyone. However, a vaccine administration fee may be charged to your insurance if applicable.
- Insured: please bring your insurance card to your appointment. We will bill your insurance, but should there be any charges associated with your COVID-19 vaccination not covered by your insurance you will NOT be billed for uncovered charges.
- Uninsured: Boise State offers COVID-19 vaccination services to the uninsured free of charge. Please bring a valid driver’s license OR Social Security Number.
If you have any questions or concerns about vaccination charges, please contact the Boise State Vaccination Clinic at firstname.lastname@example.org or (208) 426-2969. If you believe you have received a bill in error please contact our medical billers, OnDemand, at (208) 947-5390.
How will I get my second dose of vaccine?
If a second dose is required for the vaccine type you receive, an appointment will be made for your second dose at the time of your first dose appointment.
If you are unable to receive your second dose of vaccine at the Boise State Vaccination Clinic because you are outside of the Boise area, contact a vaccination provider near you to receive your second dose.
What should I do if I am not feeling well or if I have been asked to isolate or quarantine?
The purpose of COVID-19 vaccination is to help protect yourself and others from getting sick.
Do not come to the Boise State Vaccination Clinic if you are feeling ill or if you are within your isolation or quarantine period.
Instead, follow the instructions in your confirmation email to cancel or reschedule your appointment.
