CURRENT STATUS: Family Health Care anticipates having a limited number of vaccines in the coming weeks to vaccinate Phases 1A and 1B.

We are committed to protecting the health of our rural communities which are the backbone of America.

Scheduling a COVID-19 Vaccination

As vaccine supplies are limited, we ask that patients please be patient as there could be a delay in scheduling appointments.

When vaccine doses become available, Family Health Care will schedule vaccine clinics. Please call your nearest health center location to let us know you are interested and eligible for Phase 1A or 1B, and we will call you back for an appointment once the vaccine is available.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to wear a mask and avoid close contact with others if I have received two doses of the vaccine?

Yes. While experts learn more about the protection that COVID-19 vaccines provide under real- life conditions, it will be important for everyone to continue using all the tools available to us to help stop this pandemic, like covering your mouth and nose with a mask, washing hands often, and staying at least 6 feet away from others.


Can the COVID-19 vaccine make me sick with COVID-19?

No. None of the vaccines contain the live virus that causes COVID-19 so a COVID-19 vaccine cannot make you sick with COVID-19.


Will the COVID-19 vaccination protect me from getting sick with COVID-19?

Yes. COVID-19 vaccination works by teaching your immune system how to recognize and fight the virus that causes COVID-19, and this protects you from getting sick with COVID-19.


Is the COVID-19 vaccine safe?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Emergency Use Authorizations (EUA) for two COVID-19 vaccines which have been shown to be safe and effective as determined by data from the manufacturers and findings from large clinical trials. These data demonstrate that the known and potential benefits of this vaccine outweigh the known and potential harms of becoming infected with the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID 19).
