What Should You Do if You Are Charged for a COVID-19 Vaccine?

If you receive a bill related to the coverage or administration of a qualifying COVID-19 vaccine, you should first file a grievance with your health plan and include a copy of the bill. Your health plan will review the grievance and should ensure the you are reimbursed.

Will vaccines still work against the new variant?

疫苗是否仍然能對抗新的變種?


Current vaccines were designed around earlier versions of coronavirus, but scientists believe they should still work against the new ones, although perhaps not quite as well.

目前的疫苗是圍繞早期版本的冠狀病毒設計的,但科學家認為,它們仍應該可以應對新變種的新冠病毒,儘管可能效果會差一些。


Early results suggest the Pfizer vaccine protects against the new variants but is slightly less effective.

早期結果表明,輝瑞疫苗可以抵禦新變種的新冠病毒,但效果稍差。


Data on two new coronavirus vaccines that could be approved soon - one from Novavax and another from Janssen - appear to offer some protection too.

兩種可能將很快獲得批准的冠狀病毒疫苗的數據——一種來自諾瓦瓦克斯,另一種來自詹森——他們似乎也提供了一些保護。


Data from the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine team suggests it protects just as well against the new UK variant. It offers less protection against the South Africa variant - although it should still protect against severe illness.

來自牛津-阿斯利康的疫苗團隊的數據表明,它同樣能抵禦新的英國變種病毒。但它對南非變種病毒的抵抗不是那麼有效 - 雖然它仍然應該可以防止嚴重疾病。


Early results from Moderna suggest its vaccine is effective against the South Africa variant, although the immune response may not be as strong or long-lasting.

莫德納公司的早期結果表明,它的疫苗對南非變種是有效的,儘管免疫反應可能沒那麼強烈或持久。


Even in the worst-case scenario, vaccines could be redesigned and tweaked to be a better match - in a matter or weeks or months, if necessary, say experts.

專家說,即使在最壞的情況下,疫苗也可以重新設計和調整,以更好地匹配——如果必要的話,在幾周或幾個月內。


As with flu, where a new shot is given each year to account for any changes in circulating flu viruses, something similar could happen for coronavirus.

就像流感一樣,每年都會推出一個新的疫苗來應對流感病毒的任何變化,冠狀病毒也可能發生類似情況。
