Schedule Your Free COVID-19 Vaccine

Time To Roll Up Our Sleeves

At Cone Health, we are fully committed to providing effective and safe vaccines to eliminate COVID-19 in our communities.

Get Your Vaccine - All Phases Now Eligible

Everyone 16 and older who wants a COVID-19 vaccine can get one through Cone Health.

Please review our clinic sites below for vaccine type and associated age requirement before scheduling. 

J & J Vaccine Pause

Cone Health has immediately paused the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine following CDC and FDA guidance. This comes after abnormal blood clotting occurred in 6 people in the U.S. (out of 6.8 million) who received the vaccine. 

These rare and unusual events have not been observed or reported at the Cone Health clinics where the Johnson & Johnson vaccine was used. For the time being, Cone Health is replacing the Johnson & Johnson vaccines with Moderna vaccines where the Johnson & Johnson vaccine was planned for use. People can keep or make vaccination appointments as planned. We remind everyone that vaccination is extremely important to end the COVID-19 pandemic. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are created using different technology and we remain confident in their use.

Again, the abnormal blood clotting is a very rare event with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. For those who have received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine within the last three weeks, if you experience severe headache, abdominal pain, leg pain, or shortness of breath, seek immediate medical attention.  

We appreciate the caution taken by the FDA and CDC to investigate the safety of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and we look forward to the results of the investigations.

Vaccine Safety and Effectiveness

All three vaccines authorized for emergency use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration are recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as safe and effective treatments for the prevention of COVID-19. These include the Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines. (Our usage of Johnson & Johnson has been paused - please see note above.)

Clinical trials involving tens of thousands of people for each vaccine have shown that the vaccines are extremely effective in preventing COVID-19 with no serious safety concerns. Side effects reported include a sore arm at the injection site, fatigue, headache, chills and fever. While side effects are sometimes higher than for a typical flu vaccine, they are lower in many ways than side effects from the leading vaccine to prevent shingles.

Side effects are signs that a vaccine is working and are related to your immune system being stimulated to produce antibodies against infection. Side effects from vaccination are far less significant than health impacts from COVID-19.

Staying Informed

Pharmacists, infectious disease doctors, critical care nurses and other experts at Cone Health continue to speak publicly through media interviews and direct communication with our patients and communities about the safety, effectiveness and importance of vaccines to eliminate COVID-19.

In addition, reliable information on vaccine safety, effectiveness, side effects and more is available on the following websites:

Staying Safe

We agree with the CDC on what we can do to help our communities get back to normal: Getting “back to normal” is going to take all of our tools. If we use all the tools we have, we stand the best chance of getting our families, communities, schools and workplaces “back to normal” sooner:

Know Your Ws

  • Get vaccinated as soon as vaccines become available within the phase of the state's vaccination rollout plan for which you meet the eligibility criteria.
  • Wear a mask.
  • Stay 6 feet from others and avoid crowds.
  • Wash hands often.

Masking, social distancing and hand hygiene should be followed by everyone, including those who have been vaccinated.

Thank you for every effort you make to stay safe and to keep others safe. We look forward to being right here with you in every step of our journey to eliminate COVID-19 in our community.
