COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions

Vaccines

It is incredibly important for everyone 5 years and older to get vaccinated. Getting vaccinated for will help our country, communities, and families to end this pandemic and bring life back to normal.

Getting vaccinated also helps prevent serious illness for those who become infected with COVID-19. Until there is a large enough portion of the population vaccinated, COVID-19 will continue to spread and variants will develop.

There are three vaccines available in the U.S. The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is FDA-authorized for ages 5-15 and FDA approved for ages 16 and older. The Moderna® and Johnson & Johnson® vaccines are FDA-authorized for ages 18 and older.

Yes, as of October 29, 2021, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorized the emergency use of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine for children five through 11 years of age.

  • The vaccine was found to be 90.7% effective in preventing COVID-19 in children five through 11 years of age.
  • Safety: The vaccine’s safety was studied in approximately 3,100 children age five through 11 years who received the vaccine. No serious side effects have been detected in the ongoing study.

The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine for children five through 11 years of age is administered as a two-dose primary series, three weeks apart, but is a lower dose (10 micrograms) than that used for individuals 12 years of age and older (30 micrograms).

If you are a parent or guardian with questions about the vaccine, we encourage you to talk with your child’s health care provider.

For more information you can read:

Cigna looks to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and input from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) to determine these factors.

It has been shown that all three COVID-19 vaccines currently available in the United States are highly effective at preventing COVID-19.

There are now booster recommendations for all three available COVID-19 vaccines in the United States. Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received, and others may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.

For individuals who received a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, the following groups are eligible for a booster shot at six months or more after their initial series:

For the nearly 15 million people who got the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, booster shots are also recommended for those who are 18 and older and who were vaccinated two or more months ago.

For the latest recommendations on eligibility of booster shots, including recommendations for the general population, refer to the CDC’s COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Shot Eligibility or talk to your health care provider.

Yes, you should be vaccinated regardless of whether you already had COVID-19 because:

  • Research has not yet shown how long you are protected from getting COVID-19 again after you recover from COVID-19.
  • Vaccination helps protect you even if you’ve already had COVID-19.

You can also call the phone number on your ID card to find in-network health care providers to eliminate any risk your provider may choose to bill above these rates.

Some people suffer from ongoing or new symptoms after a diagnosis of COVID-19. Recovery could take as long as or longer than 3 months. It is important to see your Primary Care Provider (PCP) to discuss ongoing COVID-19 symptoms and an appropriate treatment plan. If you don’t have a PCP, log in to myCigna and use the provider directory to find an in-network provider. For more information, visit Post-COVID Conditions | CDC

After you recover from COVID-19 and/or return home from a hospitalization, your PCP can determine the best treatment plan, including assessing any follow care needed. Continue to take ensure you are up to date with preventative care screenings.

The FDA recently authorized the monoclonal antibody therapy, REGEN-COVTM, for emergency use as post-exposure prevention of COVID-19 for those 12 years of age and older weighing at least 88 pounds who are at high risk for progression to severe COVID-19, including hospitalization or death.

REGEN-COV also remains authorized for the treatment of mild-to-moderate COVID-19 for those who are at high-risk for progression to severe COVID-19. Your PCP is the best person to discuss whether this therapy is appropriate for you.
