    FAQs

    Where can I get my first or second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine?

    All three vaccines, Moderna, Pfizer/BioNTech and Johnson & Johnson are available to our patients and staff by appointment only at the West Side Drive-Up Lab.


    Who is eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine booster shot?

    GROUP 1 
    CDC guidelines state that COVID-19 vaccine booster shots are available for the following Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine recipients who completed their initial series at least 6 months ago:

     
    GROUP 2
    For moderately to severely immunocompromised people, they may be eligible for a third dose of the vaccine, which is delivered sooner than the booster dose. The 
    CDC recommends that people with moderately to severely compromised immune systems receive an additional dose of mRNA COVID-19 vaccine at least 28 days after a second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.

    How can I receive by booster shot?

    Booster vaccines are ONLY being given at the West Side Drive-Up Lab, and eligible Springfield Clinic patients must have an appointment. No walk-ins available. If patients meet the criteria listed in Group 1 above, they do not need a referral and can self-schedule their appointment. Severely immunocompromised patients may be eligible for a third dose of the vaccine, which is delivered sooner than the booster dose. If you fall into this category, please reach out to your Springfield Clinic physician to discuss a third dose and potential referral. 

    Do you have to receive the same booster as your first and second dose or can you mix and match brands?

    Currently, Springfield Clinic will administer the same brand vaccine the patient received for their first two doses. CDC recommendations advise that it is also acceptable to receive a different brand if your first brand is unavailable.

    Can the booster shot be given at the same time as the flu shot? 

    The CDC states that you can get a COVID-19 vaccine and other vaccines at the same visit. You no longer need to wait 14 days between vaccinations; therefore booster shots and the flu shot can be given at the same time.

    I received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Do I need a booster?

    At this time, there is not a specific recommendation for additional doses after receiving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. 

    If I receive my COVID-19 vaccine through Springfield Clinic, will this be covered by insurance? Will I receive a bill?

    Springfield Clinic will bill the vaccine administration to insurance. Based on our understanding of federal regulations, insurance plans should not hold the patient responsible for any co-payment or co-insurance. Please call a customer service representative (CSR) at 217.528.7541 if you have question about your bill.

    Our fees are standard by CPT code (a standardized code that represents a procedure or service), not subject to different fees based on insurance coverage.
