Since our lab provides testing for hospitals, pharmacies, long-term care, and government facilities, we were able to receive the Pfizer vaccine in the first phases of distribution. The information provided is a record of our experience that involves the planning phase and post injection.

“We initially reached out to our local health department for the determination on our status. There is now a government website for the state of Tennessee that holds all vaccine registrations. On the day of the vaccines, we traveled to our local health department to receive the first dose. We were directed to a spot in the parking lot, and never had to leave the vehicle. To verify who we were, we were asked to present our Driver’s License and a Work ID. After receiving the shot and a brief waiting period in case of symptoms, we were free to go. As you can see in our data presentation, some of our workforce experienced more symptoms than others. Even so, it’s been a unanimous response from our team that the peace of mind that comes with the vaccine, is well worth any experienced symptoms.”

Frequently Ask Questions & Concerns

When can I schedule my vaccination appointment?

Due to the limited supply, each state is developing their own plan for distributing the vaccine. Check with your state and local health department’s website to see which phase you fall under.

Who should I contact to schedule my vaccination appointment?

Start with your local health department. In many states they are the ones handling the organization and distribution of the vaccines. If you don’t have luck there, check with your local pharmacies.

Is there anything we can do to prepare for the vaccine and potential symptoms?

We were instructed to take Vitamin C and D supplements in the week leading up to the vaccination to potentially help reduce any symptoms.

Prepare for the possibility of a percentage of your workforce needing time off to recover from the symptoms. Schedule your employees’ appointments across several days to avoid having multiple people out at the same time.

Do I have to pay for my vaccine?

No, the U.S. federal government is providing the vaccine free of charge to those living here.

How do I know if my vaccine worked?

Antibody tests are available that will show whether or not you have antibodies that help fight SARS-CoV-2.

Can I get the vaccine if I currently have SARS-CoV-2?

No, you need to first recover before receiving the vaccine. Check with the CDC for specific criteria to meet before getting vaccinated.
