Some common side effects are a soreness or discomfort at the injection area, fever, chills, tiredness and/or headache. Please call your healthcare provider for any severe allergic reactions or side effects that do not go away after a few days.

If you are receiving the Pfizer vaccine, a second shot (or Booster) needs to be administered 21 days after the first dose. It takes approximately two weeks after the second shot for individuals to receive Pfizer’s 95% efficacy rate however, regardless of your vaccination status individuals should continue to follow all safety protocols: Please wear a mask, watch your distance, and wash your hands often.

If you have a non-emergency matter, please call the Emergency Operations Center at (518) 320-0019; Monday-Friday, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
