Granite County Medical Center is currently receiving the Moderna vaccine, which requires 2 doses / 4 weeks apart and was 94-95% effective in clinical trials. As with most vaccines, one may experience soreness or redness at the injection site, fatigue, headache, muscle or joint pain, or a low grade fever. This vaccine does not contain the SARS-CoV-2 virus and can not give you COVID-19.
Out of an abundance of caution, the CDC is pausing the use of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.

What You Can Do:
Following these steps can help minimize the spread of this disease. This is especially important to the elderly and those with weakened immune systems.
If you are feeling ill:
Call your local healthcare provider for advice: If you have fever, cough, short of breath, please stay home from work and do not go out in public.
If you are feeling ill:
Use soap and hot water, for 1 minute, ensure that one scrubs the tips of the fingers, thumbs, back of hands and between their fingers. This should be done multiple times a day; before eating, before and after touching one's face, eyes, or mouth, using the restroom, and periodically through the day when toughing unclean surfaces.
It is recommended to stay at least 6 feet apart in a social gathering to help minimize the spread. Avoid unnecessary travel and large groups of people.
Wash your hands often:
When sneezing or coughing do this into the inside of your elbow or cover with the top of your shirt toward your armpit area. If you must use your hands, wash them immediately.
Eat well, get adequate rest and make sure you are drinking plenty of water.
