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

All Saban Community Clinic patients are eligible to receive the COVID-19 Vaccine.

Currently, Saban is only providing the Pfizer vaccine for first-dose appointments. Pfizer is available for all patients 12 years and older, we strongly advise people 12 years and older to get vaccinated as soon as possible.

If you received the Moderna vaccine from us and are due for your second dose, you will still receive the Moderna vaccine to complete your series. 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).
