COVID-19 Vaccine Information
While the COVID-19 vaccine is not required to join us on campus or to attend courses,
FRCC is encouraging all members of our community to get vaccinated. Getting the COVID-19 vaccine is safe, effective and free.
Where to Get Your COVID-19 VaccineMaking a vaccine appointment is easy! There are many different resources to help you find an appointment that works for you.
What You Should Know About the COVID-19 Vaccine
- COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective.
- You may experience side effects after vaccination. These are normal and should go away in a few days.
- It typically takes two weeks after vaccination for the body to build protection (immunity) against the virus that causes COVID-19. You are not fully vaccinated until two weeks after the second dose of a two-dose vaccine or two weeks after a one-dose vaccine.
- Learn how to find a COVID-19 vaccine so you can get it as soon as possible.
- People who have been fully vaccinated can start to do some things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic.
The COVID-19 Vaccine is FreeThe COVID-19 vaccine is completely free for everyone, and many providers do not require any documentation to receive the vaccine.
COVID-19 vaccination providers cannot:
- Charge you for the vaccine
- Charge you directly for any administration fees, copays, coinsurance, or the balance of the bill after appropriate reimbursement
- 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

Coping with COVID-19
We recognize public health emergencies can be stressful, so the CDC provided resources on mental health and coping during COVID-19. Unfortunately, the fear and anxiety can also lead to social stigma. That’s why the CDC also issued information about helping end coronavirus-related stigma and discrimination that is occurring toward groups of people including:
- Persons of Asian descent
- People who have traveled abroad or to states with coronavirus outbreaks
- Emergency responders or healthcare professionals
We can all stop stigma and the spread of misinformation by knowing the facts about COVID-19 and sharing them with others.
