About the Vaccines

Depending on the vaccination dates, Case Western Reserve University is offering the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.

The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require two doses, 21 and 28 days apart, respectively. After you receive your first dose, you will be given a card with the date of your second dose.


The vaccines do not contain any live virus, which means they can’t cause COVID-19. More than 50,000 people—representing all races and ethnicities—tested the vaccines before they were released to the public. Outside experts reviewed the results, and agreed that the vaccinations are safe. Since then, more than 60 million people in the U.S. have received doses.


The federal government is covering the cost of COVID-19 vaccines. Both doses are free.

Why Get Vaccinated?

To protect yourself from COVID-19—which is still a serious threat. More than 500,000 people in the U.S. have died from the infection since March 2020. Others suffer from ongoing symptoms, including shortness of breath and fatigue. 

Remember: The more people are vaccinated, the safer it becomes for all of us to be able to see family and friends.
