For those who work or attend a University or College outside of the immediate area, please call (518) 333-0230 for Saturday options.

Both the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines require two shots to be administered apart — 21 days for Pfizer and 28 days for Moderna. For those who choose to be vaccinated, you may notice some side effects, but these are normal signs that your body is building protection. Some common side effects are a soreness or discomfort at the injection area, fever, chills, tiredness and/or headache.

The vaccines take approximately two weeks after the second shot for individuals to have the vaccine’s full rate of effectiveness.
