COVID-19 Vaccine

You can put your trust in us at Summers Pharmacy. We offer COVID-19 vaccines to our patients, a safe and effective vaccine that reduces the risk of infection. Summers Pharmacy encourages our patients to stay protected by receiving a COVID-19 vaccination and booster shots.

Understanding the COVID-19 Vaccine:

  • There are a few options for your COVID-19 vaccine. Pfizer BioNTech Vaccine is FDA approved for people aged 16+. Two initial doses of the vaccine are required for complete vaccination, plus booster dosing after the initial doses. 

  • The Moderna vaccine requires two initial doses to be fully vaccinated and is available for ages 18+. Booster dosing is available after the initial doses. 

  • The Johnson & Johnson vaccine requires one dose for full vaccination and is available for ages 18+ and booster doses are available as well. 

  • The COVID-19 vaccine does not contain the virus. 

  • The flu vaccine differs from the COVID-19 vaccine, and both are encouraged.
