Moderna Vaccine in Houston
RoweDocs in Houston is happy to announce that as of today we are offering our patients the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. The COVID-19 vaccine will be an important tool to protect yourself from becoming ill, as well as to help stop the pandemic. The Moderna COVID-19 vaccine has been shown to be highly effective at preventing individuals from contracting COVID-19. In patients that still do get COVID-19 the vaccine has been shown to help prevent complications that lead to serious illness. Even if you do not feel at high risk for developing complications from COVID-19, becoming vaccinated can help to protect those around you that may be vulnerable to this illness.
Moderna Vaccination Schedule
Patients will need two doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine in order for it to be fully effective at preventing illness. These doses will need to be 28 days, or four weeks, apart. If a patient’s first dose of the vaccine is Moderna, the second dose should also be Moderna.
Why should I get the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine?
While wearing masks and limiting social gatherings help to reduce your chances of being exposed to the virus or spreading it, this is not enough. Vaccines will work with your body’s immune system to protect you if you encounter the virus. When you combine safety measures with the vaccine you are greatly reducing your chances of developing complications from this unpredictable illness. We are all in this together and looking to end this global pandemic to restore regularity to our society. In order to stop the spread of this illness we must use all of the tools available to us, including the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.
What side effects are associated with the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine?
According to the FDA:
The most commonly reported side effects, which typically lasted several days, were pain at the injection site, tiredness, headache, muscle pain, chills, joint pain, swollen lymph nodes in the same arm as the injection, nausea, and vomiting, and fever. Of note, more people experienced these side effects after the second dose than after the first dose.
How should I prepare for the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine?
For the best results, you will want to be well-rested and hydrated before receiving the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. Avoid drinking alcohol before your appointment and speak to the healthcare provider administering your vaccine about any concerns you may have. You will not want to receive this vaccination at the same time as another vaccine.
