COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions
Does Cross Valley have any COVID-19 vaccines?
No. As of January 1, 2022 we do not have any brand of the COVID-19 vaccine in stock. When we receive a shipment of the vaccines, we will alert our patients through our many communication channels.
Can I be tested for COVID-19 at Cross Valley?
Yes and no. Currently, we are only scheduling COVID-19 testing appointments for our existing patients. If you are not yet a patient and would like to join the practice, please click here or give us a call at 845-561-7075.
How do I get vaccinated against COVID-19?
Since we do not have any COVID-19 vaccines in stock, we tell our patients to visit New York State's website to find a vaccine appointment near you. If you are having difficulty locating any kind of vaccination appointment, please give us a call at 845-561-7075.
When can I get a third/booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine?
Everyone 12 years and older are eligible to receive the Pfizer/BioNTech booster after at least five months from their second dose. Those between the ages of 12-17 years old may only get the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 booster.
Adults aged 18 and over are eligible to receive the Moderna booster after at least five months from their second dose.
Johnson & Johnson:
Adults aged 18 and over are eligible to receive the Johnson & Johnson booster after at least two months from their first dose.
It is preferred to keep consistent with the same series of COVID-19 vaccines you had when looking for a booster. For example, if you had received two dosages of the Moderna vaccine, it is preferred that you receive the Moderna booster. Mixing dosages, at this time, does not have enough scientific data to support health benefits.
Can I receive the vaccine if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?
A pregnant woman will remain at risk for severe illness from COVID-19 complications. The COVID-19 vaccine may protect you from developing a severe illness.
Currently, there is no medical evidence that the COVID-19 vaccine will not pose a risk for pregnant women, but the vaccines are available and recommended for those who are pregnant.
If you have any doubts, speak with your obstetrician about the risks and benefits of receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.
I am immunocompromised, can I still receive the COVID-19 vaccine?
Immunocompromised individuals are eligible and should receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Cross Valley Health & Medicine highly encourages those who have immune-related illnesses, like cancer, to consult their primary care provider (PCP) as part of making the decision to when to receive the vaccine.
Can I still transmit COVID-19 to others after being vaccinated?
Evidence is still being collected regarding the prevention of transmission for COVID-19 symptoms between those who have been vaccinated. There still is a possibility that even when vaccinated against COVID-19, you may still pose a risk to transmit symptoms to others.
After being fully vaccinated, combining mask-wearing, social distancing, and hand hygiene will reduce your personal risk of infection.
Where can I learn more about the COVID-19 vaccine?
Both the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the New York State Department of Health provides excellent information.
