COVID-19 vaccines teach your body to develop natural defenses to fight the virus. Getting more than 75% of our community vaccinated is our best chance of stopping the spread of the virus and ending public health policies like social distancing and masking. Get the vaccine to protect yourself, your family, and our community.
For information specific to the vaccines currently in use, visit the FDA website.
COVID-19 Vaccine FAQs
Most pharmacies throughout Idaho are taking walk-in appointments. Pharmacies such as Walmart, Albertsons, Bi-Mart, Walgreens, Customedica and Fred Meyer have adequate supply of COVID-19 vaccine, so you can walk in and get your shot when it's convenient. To find more information about vaccine locations, the vaccine brands available and walk-in or scheduling details, use the Vaccine Finder.

No, the vaccine free of charge to all people living in the United States, regardless of their immigration or health insurance status.
COVID-19 vaccination providers cannot:
- Charge you for the vaccine
- Charge you directly for any administration fees, co-pays, or co-insurance
- Deny vaccination to anyone who does not have health insurance coverage, is underinsured, or is out of network
- Charge an office visit or other fee to the recipient if the only service provided is a COVID-19 vaccination
- Require additional services in order for a person to receive a COVID-19 vaccine; however, additional healthcare services can be provided at the same time and billed as appropriate
COVID-19 vaccination providers can seek appropriate reimbursement from the recipient’s health plan or program (e.g., private health insurance, Medicare, Medicaid) for a vaccine administration fee, if they are insured. However, providers cannot charge the vaccine recipient the balance of the bill.
Yes, you should be vaccinated regardless of whether you already had COVID-19. That’s because experts do not yet know how long you are protected from getting sick again after recovering from COVID-19. Getting vaccinated is a safer way to build protection than getting infected.
There is no reason to suspect interference of the vaccines with fertility, conception, maintaining pregnancy or delivery. Pregnant women are at very high risk for severe illness from COVID-19, and the vaccines appear to be safe during pregnancy. Women should discuss the risks and benefits of vaccination with their doctor. Learn more.
You can get a COVID-19 vaccine and other vaccines, including a flu vaccine, at the same visit. Experience with other vaccines has shown that the way our bodies develop protection, known as an immune response, and possible side effects after getting vaccinated are generally the same when given alone or with other vaccines. Learn more about the timing of other vaccines.
In Idaho, as long as the student is able to understand what they are consenting for, they are able to get the vaccine without parental consent.
