FAQs

Pre-Vaccination Questions

Who will be administering my vaccine?


An experienced and trained Iowa-licensed healthcare provider will be administering your vaccine. These providers are certified to provide immunizations and have received advanced Vaxi Taxi training on the guidelines and recommendations set forth by the CDC’s Guidance for Immunization Services During the COVID-19 Pandemic and U.S Pharmacopeia (USP) COVID-19 Vaccine Handling Toolkit.




Which COVID-19 vaccine(s) will Vaxi Taxi offer?


The brand of vaccine(s) Vaxi Taxi will administer is determined by our state and local health departments. Vaxi Taxi mobile pharmacies and pop up clinics are equipped with mobile ultra cold storage capabilities. This allows our pharmacists to store and administer all EUA-approved COVID-19 vaccine products.




How much does the COVID-19 vaccine cost?


There is no charge for the COVID-19 vaccine. The administration fee is paid for by public or private insurance. For patients who do not have insurance, the administration fee will be covered by the federal government’s Provider Relief Fund.




Can I get my COVID-19 vaccine if I just got another shot?


The CDC recommends separating the COVID-19 vaccine by two weeks, before and after, from any other vaccines. If a COVID-19 vaccine is inadvertently given within 14 days of another vaccine, you do not need to restart the COVID-19 vaccine series.





General Vaccine and Appointment Questions

How long do I have to wait between COVID-19 doses?


The waiting period varies depending on which vaccine you receive.

  • The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine requires 21 days between doses. The Moderna vaccine requires 28 days between doses. The J&J vaccine does not require a second dose.
  • You should get your second doses as close to the recommended interval as possible.
  • You should NOT get the second dose EARLIER than the recommended interval.
  • There is no maximum interval between the first and second doses.​




Can I switch to a different COVID-19 vaccine for their second dose?


No. According to the CDC and vaccine manufacturers, different brands of COVID-19 vaccines are not interchangeable. You must receive the same vaccine for both doses in order for the vaccine to be effective.




Do I have to get my second dose from the same pharmacy or clinic that I got my first?


No; however, for the sake of efficient scheduling we encourage you to schedule with the same location, if possible. The most important considerations for your second dose are that you wait the minimum number of days between injections and that the brand you receive is consistent for both appointments.




What happens if I just get one dose of the vaccine?


Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccine products require two doses in order to achieve the desired level of immunity. The first dose begins the process of building protection, but the second dose is needed to mount a clinically effective response. The J&J vaccine product only requires one dose to mount a sufficient immune response for severe illness protection.





Post-Vaccination Questions

How will I feel after my COVID-19 vaccine?


You may have some side effects, which are normal signs that your body is building protection. These side effects may affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days. On the arm where you received the vaccine you may have pain and swelling. It is normal to experience full body fever, chills, tiredness, and/or headache.




Do I still have to wear a mask if I had two doses of vaccine?


Yes. At this time, the CDC is encouraging everyone to continue using all the tools available to help stop the spread of the virus, including covering your mouth and nose with a mask, washing your hands often, staying at least 6 feet away from others, and avoiding unnecessary gatherings when possible.




I need to talk to someone. Who can I call?


  • Severe allergic reactions: Dial 911 IMMEDIATELY
  • General COVID questions: Dial 211 for the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH)
  • Healthcare providers with general questions: 1-800-831-6293/option 1 for the IDPH
  • VaxiTaxi.com-specific questions: 1-855-VAX-IOWA




How do I report a reaction after my vaccination?


  • Call your VaxiTaxi.com pharmacist. A provider is available 8am to 6pm [CST].
  • Use V-safe , a new smartphone-based, after-vaccination health checker for people who receive COVID-19 vaccines. It uses text messaging and web surveys from the CDC to check in with vaccine recipients following COVID-19 vaccination and also provides second vaccine dose reminders.
  • Visit Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), the national system that collects reports from healthcare professionals, vaccine manufacturers, and the public of adverse events that happen after vaccination. Reports of adverse events that are unexpected, appear to happen more often than expected, or have unusual patterns are followed up with specific studies. Reports to VAERS help CDC monitor the safety of vaccines. If experts detect an unexpected adverse event, they quickly study it further to assess whether it is a true safety concern.
