MainStreet Family Care and KidsStreet Urgent Care are now offering COVID-19 vaccinations. These are currently available at all MainStreet and KidsStreet clinic locations.
Who can get a COVID-19 vaccine at this time?
At this time, MainStreet Family Care and KidsStreet Urgent Care is offering COVID-19 vaccinations to all adults age 18+. We currently offer the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines, which are only authorized for those who are 18 and older. We hope Moderna will soon receive an Emergency Use Authorization for their vaccine for those age 12-17.

How do I get the COVID-19 vaccination if I meet the criteria?
Register online at a MainStreet or KidsStreet clinic to get your Covid-19 vaccination that day. Please register online first to make sure there is space available. You can register online for any of our KidsStreet clinics or MainStreet clinics. Registration opens each day thirty minutes before the clinic opens. After beginning your online registration, please select Initial COVID Vaccination as the reason for your visit.
If the clinic you are seeking to obtain your vaccination has reached its limit of the day you will be provided a link that will list any of our other clinics that still have available vaccination spots that day. If no clinics still have vaccination availability, or you need to go to that clinic, please try again the next day, right at thirty minutes before the clinic opens.
Can I make an appointment for the COVID-19 vaccination if I meet the criteria?
We do not accept appointments, but we do have same-day online registration which opens thirty minutes prior to the clinic opening. To help you the best we can, please note the tips listed below to help you plan for your vaccination visit.
- We are open late, 7 days a week. You can find the hours for a clinic nearest you on our locations page.
- Please anticipate a wait. You can pre-register online and wait from home.
- Online registration calculates estimated wait times. Once you receive a text signaling for you to head to the clinic, there will likely be an additional wait time.
- We ask that you register online at a MainStreet clinic to get your Covid-19 vaccination. Once you’ve registered, we can confirm that space is available to administer your vaccine.
- You can register online at any of our clinics by clicking here. Please select Initial COVID Vaccination as the reason for your visit.
What if I don’t yet meet any of the criteria, but I want a vaccination?
If you do not yet meet the criteria for vaccination but want to get vaccinated, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page and we will email you when more eligible vaccination categories are added.
What vaccination do we offer?
MainStreet and KidsStreet currently offer the Moderna and Johson & Johnson vaccine. The Moderna COVID-19 vaccination requires two doses. In other words, if you receive the Moderna vaccine you will need to return to the clinic 28 days later to receive a second dose.
How much does the COVID-19 vaccine cost?
The government pays for the vaccination itself. The administration of the vaccination, office visit, and supplies are billed to your insurance company. Subsequently, this may require you to pay some or all of that portion of the treatment. However, if you are uninsured, you may qualify for the uninsured insurance program and that program covers all costs.

Can I get the vaccine if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?
The COVID-19 vaccine is available to pregnant or breastfeeding mothers who meet the above criteria. However, the vaccine has not been tested in pregnant women so there is no safety data pertaining to use in pregnancy. You can read more from The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and The Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine.
Can I bring my family members with me? Are they eligible?
Not at this time unless they meet the above criteria. We ask that only the patient being treated come to the clinic. If you or someone you love are not currently eligible and would like to receive updates, please submit the interest form below.
