Getting the COVID Vaccine can save you from getting COVID’s worst. HSNT’s Providers highly recommend getting the COVID Vaccine and boosters as needed.
A message from Dr. Paul Starr
“While getting your COVID Vaccine doesn’t guarantee you won’t get COVID, it does increase the likelihood that you will recover from COVID quickly with mild symptoms. I recommend the COVID Vaccine to all my patients to reduce risk of severe illness. I trust the science behind the development of the vaccine, and I have confidence that it is safe.”
When you chose to vaccinate, you are choosing healthy!

FAQs: Gettting Your Vaccine
Question and Answer provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Scientists are monitoring how long COVID-19 vaccine protection lasts. COVID-19 vaccines work well to prevent severe illness, hospitalization, and death. However, public health experts are seeing decreases in the protection COVID-19 vaccines provide over time, especially for certain groups of people. Due to this, CDC recommends everyone stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines for their age group:
CDC continues to review evidence and updates guidance as new information becomes available.
The number of vaccine doses you need to complete your primary series depends on which vaccine you receive.
*Talk to your healthcare or vaccine provider about the timing for the second dose in your primary series. You should not get the second dose early.

An employer may require that their workers be vaccinated. Check directly with your employer to see if they have any vaccination requirements or rules that apply to you.
Your provider cannot give you a dose of vaccine that does not follow its specific vaccine product guidelines and requirements. All COVID-19 vaccine providers in the United States must be enrolled in the CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Program. To participate in this program, vaccine providers sign an agreement that states they will only administer COVID-19 vaccines in accordance with program requirements and recommendations including those of CDC, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Your provider can refer to the CDC Interim Clinical Considerations for Use of COVID-19 Vaccines in the United States for specific information on administration of COVID-19 vaccines. These guidelines are based on safety and efficacy data and are updated as new information becomes available.
