Frequently Asked Questions
Can I still get the Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccine?
Only individuals 18 years and older who are medically unable (i.e., severe allergy) to receive one of the mRNA (Moderna or Pfizer) vaccines or who would not otherwise receive COVID-19 vaccine are now eligible to receive a dose of Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine. For more information, read the FDA's statement here. FCPH does not provide the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine.
When can my child receive the COVID-19 vaccine?
Children 6 months and older are recommended to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. FCPH administers COVID-19 vaccines on Thursdays in the immunization clinic. Call 701.241.1383 to schedule your appointment.
Which brand of vaccine should I get?
The CDC recommends individuals receive one of the two mRNA vaccines available in the U.S.: Pfizer-BioNTech's Comirnaty vaccine or Moderna's Spikevax vaccine. Both mRNA vaccines are effective at preventing infection and reducing hospitalizations and deaths. COVID-19 vaccines are most effective after completing the primary series and receiving the booster.
