6) What are the ingredients of the MODERNA COVID-19 Vaccine?

The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine contains the following ingredients: messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA), lipids (SM-102, polyethylene glycol [PEG] 2000 dimyristoyl glycerol [DMG], cholesterol, and 1,2-distearoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine [DSPC]), tromethamine, tromethamine hydrochloride, acetic acid, sodium acetate trihydrate, and sucrose.

7) How is the MODERNA COVID-19 Vaccine given?

The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine will be given to you as an injection into the muscle. The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine vaccination series is 2 doses given 1 month apart. If you receive one dose of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine, you should receive a second dose of the same vaccine 1 month later to complete the vaccination series.

8) What are the benefits of the MODERNA COVID-19 Vaccine?

In an ongoing clinical trial, the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine has been shown to prevent COVID-19 following 2 doses given 1 month apart. The duration of protection against COVID-19 is currently unknown.

9) What are the risks of the MODERNA Vaccine?

There is a remote chance that the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine could cause a severe allergic reaction. A severe allergic reaction would usually occur within a few minutes to one hour after getting a dose of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine. For this reason, we will ask you to stay 15 – 30 minutes at the Clinic after you received your vaccine for monitoring. Some of the signs of a severe allergic reaction can include:


  • Difficulty breathing
  • Swelling of your face and throat
  • A fast heartbeat
  • A bad rash all over your body
  • Dizziness and weakness.


Most side effects that have been reported in a clinical trial with the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine include:


  • Injection site reactions: pain, tenderness and swelling of the lymph nodes in the same arm of the injection, swelling (hardness), and redness
  • General side effects: fatigue, headache, muscle pain, joint pain, chills, nausea and vomiting, and fever.


These may not be all the possible side effects of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine. Serious and unexpected side effects may occur. The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine is still being studied in clinical trials.

10) What should I do about the side effects?

After you received the vaccine, PANIRA Healthcare Clinic medical and nursing will monitor you for 15 – 30 minutes. We also recommend that you continue to monitor your side effects. If you experience a severe allergic reaction, call 9-1-1, or go to the nearest hospital. Call the Clinic or your healthcare provider if you have any side effects that bother you or do not go away.

11) What other system should I report the vaccine side effects?

Report vaccine side effects to FDA/CDC Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). The VAERS toll-free number is 1-800-822-7967 or report online to https://vaers.hhs.gov/reportevent.html. Please include “Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine EUA” in the first line of box #18 of the report form. In addition, you can report side effects to ModernaTX, Inc. at 1-866-MODERNA (1-866-663-3762).


You may also be given an option to enroll in v-safe. V-safe is a new voluntary smartphone-based tool that uses text messaging and web surveys to check in with people who have been vaccinated to identify potential side effects after COVID-19 vaccination. V-safe asks questions that help CDC monitor the safety of COVID-19 vaccines. V-safe also provides second-dose reminders if needed and live telephone follow-up by CDC if participants report a significant health impact following COVID-19 vaccination.

12) Am I eligible to get the MODERNA COVID-19 Vaccine?

If you are 18 years of age and older, you can receive the vaccine the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine.

13) Are you feeling sick today?

There is no evidence that acute illness reduces vaccine efficacy or increases vaccine adverse events. However, as a precaution with moderate or severe acute illness, all vaccines should be delayed until your illness has improved.

14) Have you received another vaccine in the last 14 days?

The COVID-19 vaccine series should be administered alone, with a minimum interval of 14 days before or after administration of other vaccines. However, COVID-19 and other vaccines may be administered within a shorter period in situation where the benefits of vaccination are deemed to outweigh the potential unknown risks of vaccine coadministration. See more details in the CDC link at the end of this page.
