– Who is eligible for the booster shot (3rd dose) Moderna vaccine? Only certain individuals with weakened immune system are currently eligible for the Moderna booster shot. A list of conditions from CDC that qualify for a COVID vaccine booster dose can be found here. If you qualify, you must wait at least 4 weeks between the 2nd and 3rd doses.
-When is the general public eligible for a booster (3rd dose) of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccine? We don’t know the exact timeline yet, but more information is expecting from the CDC in the coming weeks.
-Is a consent form required? Yes, download and print a consent form here. If you do not have access to a printer, extra forms will be available at the event.
-What do I need to bring to my appointment? Completed consent form and copy of health insurance card.
-Do you accept all insurances for the COVID vaccine? Is there a charge? All insurances are accepted including all government health plans such as Medicaid and Medicare. There is no cost to you for a COVID vaccination.
-Can I receive a COVID vaccine without insurance? Yes, there is no cost for a COVID vaccination regardless of health insurance. If you are uninsured, we will ask for a social security number or a driver’s license. This information is necessary for reimbursement from the federal uninsured program.
-Do I need to bring my COVID vaccination card to my appointment? Yes, your COVID vaccination record is required.
-Can I receive a COVID vaccine booster dose even if I was not seen by Passport Health previously? Yes, however, you must bring your COVID vaccination card to your appointment showing your previous COVID vaccinations.
-I want to receive my 1st or 2nd Moderna or Pfizer vaccines, can I still participate, or is this for booster shots (3rd doses) only? Regardless of where you are in the vaccination process you are welcome to schedule your appointment.
-Which brand of COVID vaccination should I receive for my booster shot? Per CDC recommendation, you should receive the same brand of COVID vaccine for your booster dose as your original vaccine(s). In other words, if you received the Moderna brand for your 1st and 2nd doses, you should receive the Moderna brand for your 3rd dose.
-Do you provide the Johnson & Johnson COVID vaccination? We do not provide the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) COVID vaccination currently. Moderna and Pfizer brands are available for administration from our nurses.

Provide your full name, birth date, and mailing address. If you received your COVID vaccinations at another facility you will need to contact them for a replacement.
-Why is a COVID vaccine booster recommended now? Like all vaccines, CDC has found that protection against the virus that causes COVID-19 disease decreases over time. The slow decrease in vaccine efficacy coupled with high levels of community transmission, especially related to the Delta variant, prompted the CDC to recommend a booster dose now.
-Will more booster shots for the COVID vaccination be needed in the future? We don’t know yet, but it is possible that CDC recommends later to receive regular and/or yearly boosters depending on risk.

Antibody Testing for COVID-19
Antibody or serology blood tests can show if you’ve been previously infected with SARS-CoV-2; the virus that causes the disease COVID-19.It is not used to detect a current or acute infection, do not take the antibody test if you have had symptoms of COVID-19 within the last 14 days.
The test checks for IgG antibodies that are created after exposure to a disease and typically take 10-14 days to appear in the blood. Testing positive for these antibodies may mean you are less likely to develop the disease again. This antibody test is also sometimes referred to as human coronavirus antibody test, SARS-CoV-2 antibody test, or Anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibody test.
Some antibody tests use a blood draw from the arm and others are completed by finger stick. Choosing a COVID-19 antibody test carefully is important as some tests can have false positive rates higher than 50%. The sensitivity, specificity, and positive predictive value (PPV) of an antibody test are important in determining which test(s) is most accurate. Be sure you are well-informed before you choose to have an antibody test for yourself, your employees, or others.
If you are considering the test for yourself, your workplace or school please feel welcome to contact our office for recommendations on COVID-19 antibody tests to discuss the benefits and limitations to antibody testing.
Understanding COVID-19 Antibody Results:
- If you test positive:
- More likely than not, antibodies were created after a likely infection with SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes the disease COVID-19) and your body created an immune response to the virus.
- It is possible to develop antibodies without experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, also known as an asymptomatic infection.
- It is unlikely you have an active infection of COVID-19 if you also have no symptoms.
- If you test negative:
- It is most likely you have not been infected with SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes the disease COVID-19).
- It is possible you could have a current infection, especially if you have been exposed to the virus recently. Antibodies may take weeks to develop after exposure to the virus. If you have symptoms of COVID-19 you should be tested for an active infection (not an antibody test).
- It is possible you have been infected in the past but your body has not yet made antibodies that can be detected. Some people take longer to develop antibodies and some may not develop detectable antibodies.
Benefits and Limitations of COVID-19 Antibody Testing:
- Benefits of the test:
- Testing may help identify if you were previously exposed to SARS-CoV-2 virus by detecting antibodies. A positive test may mean that you have some level of immunity to this virus.
- Individuals who work in healthcare or occupations with higher risk exposure may want to know if they have been exposed.
- If you had a positive test for COVID-19 (active infection) and it has been at least 14 days and now want to know if your body has created antibodies.
- Negative results are highly accurate and can provide context for individuals and employers with decision making.
- Limitations of the test:
- False positives are more likely than false negatives. You should continue to practice frequent hand washing, covering of nose and mouth in public, distancing in public, and other measures to prevent against infection and/or inadvertent spread of COVID-19.
- Medical experts do not know if a positive test means you are immune to the virus and we do not know how long the antibodies will remain. The presence of antibodies does not mean you can’t be re-infected and spread it to others.
- A positive test result can occur because you were infected by other human coronaviruses.
- Antibody tests will not determine if you have an active infection of COVID-19.
- Individuals with a weakened immune system may not develop detectable antibodies even though they were exposed to the virus.
