    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 at the West Side Drive-Up Lab, no appointment necessary.   

    Are vaccines and boosters available to the general public or do I need to be a patient of Springfield Clinic?

    At this time, we have a limited vaccine supply that is reserved for active Springfield Clinic patients. Non-Springfield Clinic patients will be redirected to the health department for scheduling.

    Who qualifies to receive the booster vaccine for Moderna or Pfizer/BioNTech?

    If our patients have already received BOTH doses of either the Moderna vaccine or the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine (FDA approved on August 23), the extra dose is expected to provide extra protection from SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Patients should talk to their health care provider about their medical condition and whether getting an additional dose is appropriate for them. Federal health officials authorized a third dose of some COVID-19 vaccines for people who have weakened immune systems due to medical conditions or because they take certain kinds of medicine. 

    Learn more about boosters on the CDC website.

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

    Which booster shots (third dose vaccines) are available at Springfield Clinic?

    We have access to the boosters for the Moderna and the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine for patients who meet the criteria and receive a referral from their physician. 

    Do I need a doctor referral to receive the vaccine at the West Side Drive-Up Lab with Springfield Clinic?

    If you are a Springfield Clinic patient, you do NOT need a referral for the first dose; you only need a referral for the third dose at this time.

    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.
