COVID-19 is a respiratory disease caused by SARS-CoV-2, a new coronavirus discovered in 2019. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks.
While anyone can potentially contract coronavirus, people with chronic conditions or compromised immune systems and older individuals are at greater risk from potentially serious health complications. Chronic conditions may include lung disease, diabetes, heart disease, and more. Be sure to stay informed with the latest updates from the CDC.

Potential side effects of the coronavirus vaccine
At Avenel Primary Care, safety is our number one concern. We are continuously evaluating the FDA data so we can be confident that we are administering a safe vaccine.
Allergic reactions have been reported in a small number of people who have received the vaccine. We have worked with our allergist, pharmacist, nurses, and providers to have necessary medicine and protocols in place should an emergency arise.
To help ensure our patients are safe, we will ask you to park in the parking lot for 15 minutes after receiving your vaccination. Patients with a significant allergy history are going to receive their vaccinations inside and will be asked to wait for 30 minutes.
If you answer “yes” to one or more of these questions, you should consider getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Importantly, every person is different. You may consider the vaccine for an elderly parent, for example, even if you feel it is not right for you.
