What to Expect After Your Vaccine

The vaccines may cause side effects in some people, like sore muscles, feeling tired, or mild fever. These reactions mean the vaccine is working to help teach your body how to fight COVID-19 if you are exposed. For most people, these side effects will last no longer than a day or two. Having these side effects does not mean that you have COVID-19.

Is Riley County Health Department able to bill my insurance?

  • KanCare, Medicare, TRICARE Select, and most commercial health plans are accepted. 
  • We are not contracted with Ambetter, CHAMPVA, Cigna, or TRICARE Prime. If you are insured by one of these plans, you will be asked to pay full price if you receive your COVID shot from RCHD.

Vaccine Cards

You will receive a vaccination card when you get your first dose. Please bring your card with you when you receive additional doses.
