December 21st, 2020 - Covid Vaccine Info

 

Dear Cowlitz Tribal Health Clinic Community,

With the first COVID-19 vaccines being distributed this week, we know many of our CIT staff and patients have questions about the vaccine’s availability, safety, and efficacy. Cowlitz Tribal Health Clinic is here to help. Below you will find an overview of the latest information, and we will continue to share updates as the situation evolves. 

Note: Cowlitz Tribal Health Clinic is not currently accepting requests for vaccination appointments. 

COVID VACCINE AVAILABILITY

 

Is a COVID-19 vaccine currently available? 

Yes. The Moderna COVID-19 vaccine was authorized for emergency use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on December 18, 2020. The Cowlitz Tribal Health Clinic is currently awaiting our first vaccine shipment. 

 Who is getting the COVID-19 vaccine first?

The vaccine supply will be limited at first, so the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the following groups get prioritized (in order): 

  • Healthcare workers, residents, and staff of long-term care facilities.
  • Healthcare workers who have direct or indirect contact with patients, as well as those who handle infectious materials.

Cowlitz Tribal Health Clinic will initially offer the vaccine to our own healthcare workers. 

When will the COVID-19 vaccine be available to Cowlitz Tribal Health Clinic patients? 

This depends on how many vaccines are approved, how much vaccines we receive, and how quickly prioritized groups can be vaccinated. As more vaccines are distributed, Cowlitz Tribal Health Clinic will begin offering it to more people, in alignment with state guidelines. Our priority groups, based off of CDC guidance, will include the following:

  • People at high risk for severe COVID-19 disease due to underlying medical conditions.
  • Elders 60 years and older
  • Workers in essential and critical industries

We are not currently accepting requests for vaccination appointments. However, please know that your health and safety are our top priority, and we will be diligent in communicating updates on this as more vaccines become available.  Vaccines will be made available at both our Longview and Tukwila locations.

 Which vaccine is Cowlitz Tribal Health Clinic receiving?

 Cowlitz Tribal Health Clinic will be receiving the Moderna vaccine. If other vaccines receive approval at a later date, Cowlitz Tribal Health Clinic may receive them as well.

 

 

VACCINE SAFETY AND EFFICACY

 

Is the COVID-19 vaccine safe? 

Yes, any vaccine distributed at Cowlitz Tribal Health Clinic will be safe for the staff and patients. Any COVID-19 vaccine will have:

  • Completed three phases of clinical trials.
  • Been reviewed and approved for safety and efficacy by 
    • The FDA
    • The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).
    • An independent three-state task force in Washington, Oregon and California.
    • The Cowlitz Tribal Health Clinic’s COVID-19 Vaccine Task Force, which includes a wide range of clinicians and specialists. 

How effective is the COVID-19 vaccine? 

Both Pfizer and Moderna announced that their vaccines were more than 90% effective in Phase 3 clinical trials. 

 How do COVID-19 vaccines work?

COVID-19 vaccines help our bodies develop immunity to COVID-19 without having to get the illness. Different vaccines work in different ways, but they all use the v

irus (or material from it) to produce an immune response. The body’s immune system is then able to recognize and respond if it comes in contact with the virus again.  You cannot get COVID-19 from the vaccine. 

For up-to-date, detailed information about the COVID-19 vaccine, please go to the CDC’s website: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/v
