What vaccine will Horsham Pharmacy be given?
Currently, we have Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines.
Should I get the vaccine?
Short answer – yes. For any vaccine to be effective, 70% of the population needs to be vaccinated for the vaccine to work as planned. Because all the vaccines are new, there is some data that will have to be reviewed. If anyone has a preexisting conditions or concerns, we will always lean on the side of caution until we have factual evidence it’s safe to administer. Some groups (as of now) that they do not have enough data about the safety of the vaccine are: Children (under 16), people with severe allergies, women who are pregnant, many other preexisting conditions. To stress again, we will advise any patient to wait for more information if we do not have the safety data to make an informed decision.
What are the potential side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine

Side effects that have been reported with the COVID-19 vaccines include:

  • Immediately after injection: pain, tenderness, redness, and swelling of the arm injected
  • General side effects: fever, fatigue, headaches, muscle and joint pain, chills, nausea, and vomiting

For more information about the vaccine, please see the Vaccine Fact Sheet below for each vaccine type.

Will my insurance pay for it?

COVID-19 vaccine is offered at no cost, regardless if you have insurance or not.

Will I still need to wear a mask and social distant after I receive the vaccine?
Yes! Until public health officials tell us otherwise, you will still need to follow the guidance put out by the County, State, and Federal government. There is ongoing research to see if someone who is vaccinated and protected can still transmit the disease.
Where will the Vaccine be given?
The vaccine will be given at our pharmacy.
