 We will serve any children who are our patients, as well as anyone in the community.

How many doses are there for this immunization?
Moderna series has two doses, one month apart. Anyone who signs up for an appointment on Aug. 19 or Aug. 20 will be automatically signed up for the matching time on the corresponding day for the second-dose clinic – Friday, Sept. 16 or Saturday, Sept. 17. You do not need to sign up your child for the second dose. 

 

How much does this cost?
This service does not have an out-of-pocket cost. East Hill will bill your insurance, but will not charge you if your child does not have health insurance.

Do I need to make an appointment for my child?
We ask people to sign up for an appointment to make sure we have enough vaccine. However, we will not turn away walk-ins, as long as we have enough supply. Click here to sign up for an appointment.

On the online registration, what does "new patient" mean?

If your child has been seen at Summit Pediatrics or in our family practice, Duckett Family Medicine, select no, not a new patient. This allows the digital system to find your file quickly. If your child has not been seen at East Hill Medical Center's practices, please select yes, for a new patient. This signals the system to ask additional questions to enroll you in the digital system.

What should I bring with me?

Please bring your child's insurance card as well as wear a mask to your appointment. Young children are not required to wear a mask if it is not safe.

I’m adult, and would like a booster. Where can I get one?
East Hill is incorporating the Moderna vaccines into our primary care practices. If you would like to be seen as a patient, please call (315) 253-8477.

Are there any risks for getting this vaccine?
There is a remote chance that the vaccine could cause a severe allergic reaction. A severe allergic reaction would usually occur within a few minutes to one hour after getting a dose of the vaccine. For this reason, we will ask that you stay for a 15 minutes after receiving your immunization, or 30 minutes for those who have had allergic reactions.  
Side effects that have been reported in clinical trials with the vaccine include:
•    Injection site reactions: pain, tenderness and swelling of the lymph nodes in the same arm of the injection, or in the groin, redness and swelling (hardness)
•    General side effects: fatigue, headache, muscle pain, joint pain, chills, nausea and vomiting, fever, rash, irritability/crying, sleepiness, and loss of appetite.
These may not be all the possible side effects of the vaccine. Look under the Tips and Resources section at the bottom of the page for Moderna information for specific age groups.
