How do I get the COVID-19 vaccination?
Register online at a MainStreet or KidsStreet clinic to get your Covid-19 vaccination that day. Please register online first to make sure there is space available. You can register online at any of our clinics here. Registration opens each day 30 minutes before the clinic opens. After beginning your online registration, please select Initial COVID Vaccination as the reason for your visit.
If the clinic you are seeking to obtain your vaccination has reached its limit of the day you will be provided a link that will list any of our other clinics that still have available vaccination spots that day. If no clinics still have vaccination availability, or you need to go to that clinic, please try again the next day, right at 30 minutes before the clinic opens.
Can I make an appointment for the COVID-19 vaccination?
We do not accept appointments, but we do have same-day online registration which opens 30 minutes prior to the clinic opening. To help you the best we can, please note the tips listed below to help you plan for your vaccination visit.
- We are open late, 7 days a week. You can find the hours for a clinic nearest you on our locations page.
- Please anticipate a wait. You can register online and wait from home.
- Online registration calculates estimated wait times. Once you receive a text signaling for you to head to the clinic, there will likely be an additional wait time.
- We ask that you register online at a MainStreet clinic to get your Covid-19 vaccination. Once you’ve registered, we can confirm that space is available to administer your vaccine.
- You can register online at any of our clinics by clicking here. Please select Initial COVID Vaccination as the reason for your visit.
What if I don’t yet meet any of the criteria, but I want a vaccination?
All individuals 16 and up are now eligible for vaccines. However, we only have Johnson & Johnson and Moderna available at MainStreet clinics. Please fill out the form at the bottom of this page if you are over 18 and interested in a vaccine.
What vaccination do we offer?
Select MainStreet clinics are now offering the Moderna vaccine. The Moderna vaccine requires two doses. If you receive the Moderna shot, you will need to return to the clinic 28 days later to receive a second dose.
How much does the COVID-19 vaccine cost?
The government pays for the vaccination itself. The administration of the vaccination, office visit, and supplies are billed to your insurance company. Subsequently, this may require you to pay some or all of that portion of the treatment. However, if you are uninsured, you may qualify for the uninsured insurance program and that program covers all costs.
What are the side effects?
How effective is the vaccine?
Can I get the vaccine if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?
The COVID-19 vaccine is available to pregnant or breastfeeding mothers who meet the above criteria. However, the vaccine has not been tested in pregnant women so there is no safety data pertaining to use in pregnancy. You can read more from The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and The Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine.
Can I bring my family members with me? Are they eligible?
Not at this time unless they are over 18 and have registered online prior to visiting the clinic. We ask that only the patients being treated come to the clinic.
How do I get my second dose of the vaccine?
If you receive the Moderna vaccine, it is recommended that patients receive a booster shot of the COVID-19 vaccine 24-42 days after their initial shot. Y0u can read more here.
