COVID-19 Vaccine at
950 E 33rd St, Signal Hill, CA 90755
CVS Health offers COVID-19 Vaccines. Limited appointments now available for patients who qualify.
According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, eligible patients can receive an updated COVID-19 vaccine at least two months after their last dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. The CDC also states that the COVID-19 vaccine can be co-administered with the flu vaccine.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone age 6 months and older get an updated Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to help protect against serious illness from COVID-19. As an alternative, the CDC also recommends one dose of Novavax COVID-19 vaccine at least two months after the last dose of any COVID-19 vaccine for individuals age 12 or older. CVS® store locations can administer COVID-19 vaccines to patients age 5 and older.
*Certain individuals may be eligible for more than one dose of the updated COVID-19 vaccine, depending on their age, previous vaccination history and/or immunocompromised status. Ask your health care provider for more information.
Yes, but not all insurance plans are in network at CVS. The COVID-19 vaccine may be no cost to you at CVS depending on your insurance plan. Insurance plans vary, and your insurance plan determines where you are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccination at no cost to you. No-cost COVID-19 vaccines through this program will be available through December 31, 2024.
If CVS is not in network with your insurance plan, please check with your insurance plan - you can choose to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at CVS. However, you will be charged $190.99 for the vaccination. Alternatively, you may contact your insurance provider to determine where you may obtain a COVID-19 vaccination at no cost to you.
The CVS Pharmacy at 950 E 33rd St in Signal Hill, CA follows the most up-to-date federal guidance as it relates to COVID-19 vaccine administration. We offer either the updated Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 mRNA vaccines for all doses administered to eligible individuals, depending on location, as well as the updated Novavax protein-based COVID-19 vaccine to eligible individuals.
The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) recommends updated COVID-19 vaccination for everyone age 6 months or older to better protect you and your loved ones. Specific recommendations may vary by age, previous vaccination history or whether you are moderately or severely immunocompromised. Please talk to your pharmacist or provider or use the digital scheduler at CVS.com® and the CVS Pharmacy app to help determine what’s best for you.
Houston Medical, recognized as a top 20 U.S. hospital in a 2022 to 2023 list by U.S. News & World Report, reported why the new COVID-19 vaccine formulations are a little different from previous boosters. According to Houston Medical, these updated formulations don't just "boost" protection against particular versions of the COVID-19 virus. Because these new formulations update patient immune systems to recognize the strains of the virus they're most likely to encounter, they're called vaccines instead of boosters.
An eligible individual should receive an age-appropriate vaccination. At this time, there is no preference given for one formulation (Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech) over another. If choosing the protein-based updated Novavax COVID-19 vaccine, individuals not previously vaccinated with any COVID-19 vaccine should receive two doses, administered at least three weeks apart. Patients who are immunocompromised may need additional doses. Please talk to your pharmacist or provider, or use the digital scheduler at CVS.com ® and in the CVS Pharmacy® app, to help determine what’s best for you.
As part of the scheduling process on CVS.com, patients are asked to attest that all information provided during appointment setup is truthful and accurate. Some states also require the collection of IDs to verify eligibility. We reserve the right to cancel appointments if it's determined that information provided for establishing eligibility is not truthful.
The bivalent COVID-19 vaccine and previous authorized COVID-19 formulations are no longer authorized for use. The CDC now recommends that most individuals receive a single dose of the updated FDA (Food and Drug Administration) authorized vaccine, regardless of previous vaccination status.
