CHV Vaccinations

Posted on October 22nd, 2023 by Elizabeth Nelson

CHV plans to have both Moderna and Pfizer Covid vaccines on hand, but availability cannot be guaranteed. Flu vaccinations are for ages 3 and older; COVID vaccinations will be available for ages 12 and above; and RSV is for individuals ages 60 and older.

Attendees will need to complete a consent form onsite and should bring their insurance cards. There should be no cost for Covid and flu vaccines, but insurance coverage for the RSV vaccine is uneven. CHV encourages everyone to check with their insurance company in advance or the pharmacist can check onsite before administering the RSV vaccine.
