About COVID-19 Vaccines
Vaccines are safe, effective and the best way to protect you and those around you from serious illnesses like .
Vaccines work with your immune system so your body will be ready to fight the virus if you are exposed. This can reduce your risk of developing and make your symptoms milder if you do get it.
CK Public Health is currently distributing the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines. At the time of booking, and again at the time of immunization, you will be notified of which vaccine you are receiving.
If you received Pfizer or Moderna (mRNA vaccines) for your first vaccine, we will try as much as possible to get you the same vaccine for your second dose. If the same mRNA vaccine is not readily available, you may receive the other mRNA vaccine instead to complete the vaccine series. Both vaccines are safe and effective and can be interchanged.
