Statcare COVID-19 Vaccine Near Me

The Omicron subvariant of COVID-19, BA.5, is now the predominant strain in the U.S. as per the CDC. It’s the most infectious strain to date and is able to evade immunity from prior COVID infections or vaccinations. The symptoms however are same as for other COVID strains. Being vaccinated helps protect you against severe disease. The CDC data that shows risk of death was four times higher for those over age 50 who had only the first booster, compared with those who had two boosters of COVID two boosters of COVID vaccines. New research shows that repeated COVID infection (asymptomatic, too) increases the risk for complications and long COVID. These include stroke, heart attack, diabetes, GI and kidney disorders and memory issues. The more the number of people infected, the more the chances for new variants to emerge. Vaccination is therefore encouraged.

Statcare is helping to distribute the coronavirus vaccine as it becomes available in New York. Health care workers and high-risk patients are the highest priority for the covid vaccine rollout. Those who fall under the Phase 1A category will be the first to receive any available shots, which for now are the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines long-term care facility residents and health care personnel as phase 1A recipients. Phase 1B will include anyone 75 or older, and front line workers. Those ages 16 to 64 with high-risk conditions, anyone 65-75, and all other essential workers will be eligible for Phase 1C of the vaccine distribution.

About the Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine 


Pfizer’s efforts resulted in the first COVID vaccine to get an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the FDA. Based on Pfizer’s clinical trials, they have claimed a 95% efficacy rate after two doses. The two injections are to be administered 21 days apart

Pfizer’s clinical research does not record significant adverse effects in the individuals who got the injections. Pfizer claims that side effects are mild to moderate in severity and subside within a few days. These reactions can include: pain, swelling, and /or redness at the injection site, fatigue, headache, muscle and/or joint pain, chills, fever, nausea, and malaise.

The vaccine claims to be safe and effective for most individuals, regardless of age, weight, or demographic. The FDA approves this vaccine’s administration to only those who are 16 years of age or older.

About the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine (mRNA-1273)

Moderna’s vaccine development efforts produced an mRNA vaccine purported to prevent COVID-19 in persons who receive it. As the second vaccine candidate that the US Food and Drug Administration authorized for use, it is already becoming available. The FDA  Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for Moderna’s vaccine came through on December 18, 2020.

Moderna’s clinical trials claim their vaccine is 94.1% effective at preventing COVID-19 in people who get both doses. The Moderna vaccine consists of two doses, taken 28 days apart. According to the CDC, swelling and pain may occur where the shots are given in the upper arm muscle. 

Other possible side effects include chills, fever, headache, and fatigue, which may reduce your ability to perform daily tasks. The CDC says these symptoms mean that your body is reacting to the vaccine as intended.
