COVID-19 Vaccines and Testing

Updated 01.10.2022

On October 29, 2021, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use in children ages 5 – 11.

On August 23, 2021, the FDA approved the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for use in individuals 16 and older. The Pfizer vaccine remains under an emergency use authorization for children ages 12-15.

There are currently three vaccines authorized for use within the United States; Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson.

ChesPenn Health Services is offering booster shots for both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, where available. The booster shot is available to those who meet certain qualifications and have completed both doses of their original vaccine at least six months ago. Please bring your vaccination card and insurance card (if applicable) to your vaccination appointment.

The following groups are approved for a booster shot:

The CDC currently recommends the following be tested for COVID-19:

  • People who have symptoms of COVID-19
  • People who have come in close contact with someone who has COVID-19
    • Fully vaccinated individuals should be tested 5-7 days after their last exposure.
    • Unvaccinated people should get tested immediately after learning about their close contact.
      • If the test comes back negative, the individual should retest in 5-7 days or when symptoms develop.
  • Unvaccinated people who have been a part of activities that put them at higher risk of contracting COVID-19, like traveling, attending large social or mass gatherings, or being in poorly ventilated and crowded settings.
  • Individuals who have been referred to get tested by their healthcare provider, or state, tribal, local, or territorial health department.

It is also recommended that anyone with symptoms or potential signs of COVID-19 be tested, regardless of vaccination status or prior infection of COVID-19.

Be mindful of any vaccination laws or testing regulations when traveling, both domestically and internationally.
