While we patiently wait to get more vaccines, to make sure everyone is able to get the COVID-19 vaccine please remember to:
- Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds with warm, soapy water. If you aren't near a sink, use hand sanitizer.
- Wear a mask when around people not living with you.
- Follow the six-foot rule. Try to stay 6 feet apart from those not in your household, even when you both have masks on.
FAQ About the COVID-19 Vaccine
Will everyone be able to get the vaccine?
Currently, Mountain Park patients 65 and over and essential workers in Priority Phase 1B will be receiving their vaccines. As more vaccines become available other patient groups will be able to receive them.
How many shots of the COVID-19 vaccine will I need to get?
At Mountain Park, you will be receiving the Moderna vaccine. It is important that once you get the Moderna vaccine you come back to Mountain Park for your second shot approximately one month after the 1st dose.
If I have already had COVID-19 and recovered, should I still get the vaccine?
Yes. Due to severe health risks associated with COVID-19 and the fact that reinfection with COVID-19 is possible, you should be vaccinated regardless of whether you already had COVID-19 infection. You will be able to get the vaccine 2-4 weeks after your symptoms go away. Talk to your provider if you are unsure what treatments you received or if you have more questions about the COVID-19 vaccine.
Do I still need to wear a mask and practice social distancing after receiving two doses of the vaccine?
Yes. Experts are still learning about the protections the COVID-19 vaccine provides in real-life conditions. Although we know the vaccine provides 95% protection against getting COVID-19 infection, a big question out there is whether or not someone who is vaccinated can spread the virus to others. It will be important to continue doing everything you can to stop the spread of the virus including covering your mouth and nose with a mask, practicing good hand hygiene, and staying socially distant even if you have been vaccinated.
What can I do now to help protect myself from the virus until I am able to get the vaccine?
You should cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others not in your household, avoid contact with people who are sick, stay 6 feet away from others, avoid crowds, and wash your hands often.
How do I know if the vaccine is safe?
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Emergency Use Authorizations (EUA) for two COVID-19 vaccines which have been shown to be safe and effective for use. While more COVID-19 vaccines are being developed as quickly as possible, routine processes and procedures remain in place to ensure the safety of any vaccine that is authorized or approved for use. Safety is a top priority, and there are many reasons to get vaccinated. The data collected during the clinical trials have shown that the benefits of the vaccine far outweigh the known and potential harms of being infected with COVID-19.
What are some common side effects?
It’s common that some people will experience side effects from the vaccine, which are normal signs that your body is building protection. These side effects are short-lived and are typically gone within a day or two.
Common Side Effects:
- Pain and swelling on the arm you receive the vaccine
I’m scared to get the vaccine because of the potential side effects. What do we know?
Side effects may feel like flu and may affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days. The vaccine will not make you sick as it does not contain a live COVID-19 virus and has been shown to be 95% effective against fighting COVID-19, a virus that has killed more than 400,000 people in the United States and almost 13,000 Arizonans in less than a year.

What our patients are saying
It's one of the most amazing clinics I've ever taken my four, going on five children too! They have taken such good care of us over the years, and to top it off they have walk-in dental and a WIC office all-in-one...and so much more!!! Everyone is amazing!
I was nervous to be seen during this pandemic, however, they made the initial appointment as a new patient convenient. This was online and the nurse practitioner was very and helpful. Thank you for treating me with respect and kindness.
