Why Get Vaccinated?
To protect yourself, your coworkers, your friends, your family, & your community!
- Building defenses against COVID-19 in our communities is a team effort. And you are a key part of that defense.
- Getting the COVID-19 vaccine adds one more layer of protection.
- It's a shot at togetherness and our best way of living normal lives once again!
Our COVID-19 Vaccination Sites:
We are currently vaccinating individuals aged 18-years-old and up at all CNHF clinics Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm.
Please call 844-660-9086 for more information about receiving your COVID-19 vaccine.
If you have health insurance please bring your insurance information.
The best COVID-19 vaccine is the first one that is available to you. Do not wait for a specific brand.
All currently authorized and recommended COVID-19 vaccines:
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) does not recommend one vaccine over another.
We are currently providing the Moderna and Janssen COVID-19 Vaccines, which are authorized for people 18-years-old and older. Moderna is a two-shot vaccine that is given 4 weeks (28 days) apart. After receiving your second vaccine, you will be fully vaccinated after 2 weeks.* The Janssen COVID-19 vaccine is a single-dose vaccine.
*You should get your second shot as close to the recommended 3-week or 4-week interval as possible. However, your second shot may be given up to 6 weeks (42 days) after the first dose, if necessary.
Please note: If you have had a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) or an immediate allergic reaction to any ingredient in the vaccine you are scheduled to receive, you should not get that vaccine. If you have been instructed not to get one type of COVID-19 vaccine, you may still be able to get another type. Learn more information for people with allergies.
COVID-19 Testing Information:
COVID-19 testing is available at all CNHF Clinics.
About our COVID-19 Tests:
The COVID-19 tests are administered with kits that utilize nucleic acid amplification such as RT-PCR (Reverse Transcription-Polymerase Chain Reaction) and/or TMA (Transcription Mediated Amplification) for the detection of SARS-CoV-2.
More than 30,000 tests have been administered since the roll-out of our testing program with constant analysis of the epidemiological trends across our service areas.
All test results include information from the corresponding laboratory on the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) and validation.
Who should get tested?
- People going back to school, students, workers, athletes, and those who are frequently around others.
- People who have symptoms of COVID-19.
- People who have had close contact (within 6 feet for a total of 15 minutes or more) with someone with confirmed COVID-19.
- People who have taken part in activities that put them at higher risk for COVID-19 because they cannot socially distance themselves as needed: such as travel, attending social or mass gatherings, or being in crowded indoor settings without proper ventilation.
- People who have been asked or referred to get testing by their healthcare provider or state health department.
If you do get tested, you should self-quarantine/isolate at home pending test results and follow the advice of your healthcare provider or a public health professional.
Do we accept those without medical insurance?
Yes! We gladly accept those with and without medical insurance. An application for emergency medical Hospital Presumptive Eligibility (HPE) will be processed for the uninsured.
What to bring to the testing site:
Please have your ID and your health insurance card/information ready when you arrive to get COVID-19 tested. We gladly test those who do not have health/medical insurance as well! To receive your test results, please provide a phone number and/or email address.
