For now, Manet will only offer the Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines. The US government has paused use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine because six people (out of 7 million vaccinations) experienced a possible serious side effect. Scientists are now reviewing the cases to make sure it is safe. We will post additional information on our website as it becomes available. If you received the J & J vaccine and have concerns, please contact your provider.
The two-dose Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines use a different technology to produce immunity and, with more than 192 million vaccinations administered in the US, have reported no significant safety concerns.
Phase 3 Vaccine Eligibility Begins April 19
As vaccine eligibility in Massachusetts expands on Monday, April 19, to include everyone age 16 and older, Manet is ready and opening vaccine appointment slots each day. Appointments can be booked on our website or by calling your Manet site.
Getting a vaccine is the best protection against COVID-19!
