Is the COVID-19 Vaccine Ready?
Two major pharmaceutical companies, Pfizer and Moderna, have released data with reports of efficacy over 94%. Emergency Authorization has been granted and both of the vaccines have been given to over 2 million Americans so far in the country.
Will Our Office Get the Vaccine?
At this time, we do not have any information regarding the availability of the vaccine to offices, clinics, city health departments, etc… It is too soon to know when they will be widely available to the general public.
Do We Have a Preferred List?
We have not decided to create a wait list for the vaccine as we still have very little information on how it will be distributed, if at all, to medical offices in 2021. The vaccines need to be stored in extremely low temperatures in special refrigerators that poses a very difficult logistic to many offices, including pharmacies.
How Much Will it Cost?
At this time, we do not have information regarding insurance coverage, cost, or out-of-pocket expenses.
