Frequently Asked Questions
What COVID-19 vaccine does Lewis offer?
Currently, Lewis offers all COVID-19 vaccines available in the U.S.: Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson. Pediatric Pfizer (ages 5-11) is also available at select locations. For specific availability, please call your preferred Lewis Drug location, visit the Lewis Drug website (www.lewisdrug.com) to see specific store information or you can visit the vaccines.gov webpage to search for availability at your local Lewis.
Do I need a booster dose?
Current CDC guidelines suggest that individuals age 12 and up should receive a booster dose of COVID vaccine. Patients may receive a booster if they have completed their initial COVID series. As of March 29, 2022, the CDC recommends a second booster dose of a mRNA COVID19 vaccine, to those immunocompromised individuals aged 18 and older or those aged 50 years and older if you have received your first booster dose at least 4 months prior.
Which booster dose is right for me?
Regardless which type of vaccine you received for your initial COVID-19 vaccination series, you may ‘mix and match’ either Pfizer or Moderna vaccines as a booster dose. The CDC has updated its recommendations for COVID-19 vaccines with a preference for people to receive an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna) as their booster dose. Ask your local Lewis Drug pharmacist for details regarding each manufacturer.
Is the COVID-19 vaccine free?
Yes, it is free. There is no cost to you, insured or uninsured, to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
