Walk-In Johnson & Johnson COVID Vaccines
Tribal Health Pharmacies at both the Polson and St. Ignatius Health Centers are offering walk-in Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccines to patients aged 18+ years old. The pharmacies will also have a small supply of Pfizer vaccine to be administered to patients aged 12+ years old.
The J&J/Janssen vaccine requires only one dose. The J&J/Janssen vaccine is found to be highly effective in clinical trials at preventing laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 illness.
People have the most protection 2 weeks after getting vaccinated.
COVID-19 vaccinations and other vaccinations (e.g. pneumonia, shingles) can be administered at the same and are also available at both Tribal Health Pharmacies.
Upon arrival to the clinic, each patient will be screened for symptoms of COVID-19. Each patient will also receive information about the vaccine, and a card that verifies their vaccination.
Tribal Health providers encourage everyone to get vaccinated because it is a key step in saving lives and ending the pandemic. Below you will find some educational resources to help you learn more:
