Do you have symptoms of COVID-19?

Are you experiencing fever, cough, and shortness of breath? If you think you may have coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms or exposure, please stay at home to protect yourself and others. The best first step is one of our remote resources:

  • Engage with our symptom checker chat box. Get your questions answered and be routed to the right care for your unique situation from this page.
  • To support our community response to the coronavirus, we are expanding access to virtual urgent care. If you’re experiencing mild to moderate symptoms of COVID-19, you may schedule a virtual visit. Symptoms may include low-grade fever, cough, and shortness of breath.

The COVID-19 vaccine FAQs

When will the vaccine be available?

An exact date of when the vaccine will be available has not yet been determined. We expect the FDA will issue an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) very soon. After the EUA, vaccine distribution and administration can begin.

Is the vaccine safe?

At CommonSpirit Health, safety is our priority, and we only administer vaccines that are proven safe and effective.

When can I get the vaccine?

Initial supply of a COVID-19 vaccine may be limited, and federal guidelines indicate that health care workers should be among the first to get the vaccine in order to ensure health systems are able to continue to provide care through the pandemic and beyond. Additionally, first responders and employees and patients in long-term care centers and other similar facilities will also likely receive the vaccines first, when they are available. We expect that vaccines may be widely available by spring or summer 2021.

Where can I get the vaccine?

Initially, a limited number of provider sites will be available to administer the vaccine. Check with your physician’s office for more information about provider sites near you.

How is the vaccine given?

Both vaccines currently under review for an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) require two doses, administered three or four weeks apart.

Is the vaccine safe for children or pregnant/nursing mothers?

There is not enough information available to know whether the vaccine is safe for pregnant women, nursing mothers, or children.

Where can I get more information about the vaccine?

For additional information on the COVID-19 and the vaccine approval process, we recommend reviewing the FAQs on the CDC website and FDA website.
