COVID-19 Important Updates for Our Patients

Getting Vaccinated – COVID-19

As the new COVID-19 vaccine becomes available, we know you probably have many questions about the vaccine itself and when you might be eligible to receive it. Caring for our patients is our #1 priority and it is our goal to be a valuable and trusted resource for COVID vaccinations.

Vaccine Update

Due to our limited supply of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, Saban Community Clinic is only vaccinating SCC patients 65 and older or those with underlying conditions.
Patients who are 65 and older can schedule an appointment for the vaccine directly, through the patient portal, MyChart, the chat feature on our website, or through our COVID-19 vaccine appointment line through our Call Center.

Patients who are under 65 with underlying conditions are scheduled by their provider only. To see if you are eligible, please send a message to your provider through the MyChart patient portal or the chat function on our website.

Need the Second Dose? If you received your first dose with SCC, you should receive an appointment reminder by text or phone call within the week you are due.

If you have not received your first dose from SCC, please continue your vaccination schedule with the provider who administered your first dose.

Get Vaccinated- It’s Safe

When you have the option to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, we encourage you to get vaccinated. Scientific data has proven the vaccine is safe and critical to stopping the spread of COVID-19. Educate yourself on Vaccine Facts here (Facts about COVID-19 Vaccines (cdc.gov).

Which Vaccine is Right for me?
