COVID-19 Vaccination

Kore Lab Solutions is committed to ensuring seamless and efficient administration of the COVID-19 vaccine to keep our communities safe with COVID-19 vaccinations available.

The U.S. Federal Drug Administration (FDA) approved the first COVID-19 vaccine on Dec. 11, 2020 with initial doses being distributed in accordance with CDC recommendations. Distribution for the COVID vaccine in Kansas City is being governed by the State of Kansas.

Vaccine supply changes daily. Please confirm with the provider both your eligibility for and their availability of the COVID-19 vaccine.

FAQs

FAQs

Will I be able to choose which COVID-19 vaccine I get?

Yes, depending on which vaccines Kore Lab Solutions has in stock. All currently authorized and recommended COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective, and CDC does not recommend one vaccine over another. The most important decision is to get a COVID-19 vaccination as soon as possible. Widespread vaccination is a critical tool to help stop the pandemic.

People should be aware that a risk of a rare condition called thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS) has been reported following vaccination with the J&J/Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine. TTS is a serious condition that involves blood clots with low platelet counts. This problem is rare, and most reports were in women between 18 and 49 years old. For women 50 years and older and men of any age, this problem is even more rare. There are other COVID-19 vaccine options available for which this risk has not been seen (Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna).

What are some common side effects of the COVID-19 vaccines?

After getting vaccinated you might have some side effects, which are normal signs that your immune system is building protection. Common side effects are pain, redness, and swelling in the arm where you received the shot, as well as tiredness, headache, muscle pain, chills, fever, and nausea throughout the rest of the body. These side effects could affect your ability to perform your daily activities, but they should go away in a few days. Learn more about what to expect after getting a COVID-19 vaccine.

If I am pregnant, can I receive the COVID-19 vaccine?

Yes, if you are pregnant, you can receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

You might want to have a conversation with your healthcare provider to help you decide whether to get vaccinated. While such a conversation might be helpful, it is not required before vaccination. Learn more about vaccination considerations for people who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

If you are pregnant and have received a COVID-19 vaccine, Kore Labs encourages you to enroll in v-safe, CDC’s smartphone-based tool that provides personalized health check-ins after vaccination. A v-safe pregnancy registry has been established to gather information on the health of pregnant people who have received a COVID-19 vaccine.

How long does protection from the vaccine last?

Scientists are not yet sure how long protection lasts for those who are vaccinated but the clinical trial data suggests that protection lasts at minimum 6 months and but could be as long as 2-3 years. What we do know is that COVID-19 has caused very serious illness and death for a lot of people. If you get COVID-19, you also risk giving it to loved ones who may become severely sick. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine is a safer choice. Scientists are working to learn more about both natural immunity and vaccine-induced immunity. The CDC will keep the public informed as new evidence becomes available.

Do I need to wear a mask and social distance from others if I have been fully vaccinated?

It depends. For now, fully vaccinated people can gather indoors without physical distancing or wearing masks with:

  • Other people who are fully vaccinated
  • Unvaccinated people from one other household, unless any of those people or anyone they live with has an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19

Until more is known, fully vaccinated people should continue to wear masks and stay 6 feet apart from other people in other settings, like when they are in public or visiting with unvaccinated people from multiple households. Additional recommendations can be found at When You’ve Been Fully Vaccinated.

Is it safe for my child to receive the COVID-19 vaccine?

Yes. Studies show that COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. Like adults, children may have some side effects after COVID-19 vaccination. These side effects may affect their ability to do daily activities, but should go away in a few days. Children age 12 and older are now eligible for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. COVID-19 vaccines have been used under the most intensive safety monitoring in U.S. history, including studies in children 12 years and older. Children cannot get COVID-19 from a COVID-19 vaccine.

Who pays for the COVID-19 vaccine?

The federal government is providing the vaccines free of charge to all persons living in the United States regardless of their immigration or health insurance status

Rapid Covid Testing

One of the most stressful aspects of the current pandemic is the constant uncertainty on a personal, national, and global level. We do not know when a vaccine will be developed, or if it will be safe to go out in public on any given day, or how best to implement social distancing into our complex lives.

COVID-19 Rapid Molecular Testing – Results in 60 minutes or less

Kore Lab Solutions offers a nasal swab rapid molecular test for COVID-19. This molecular test is designed to detect the genetic material from the COVID-19 virus. A positive result indicates a current infection with COVID-19. Because this test checks for the genetic material of the COVID-19 virus, it is considered a molecular test that could be used for travel or confirmatory testing requirements.

COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Testing —
Results 60 minutes or less

Kore Lab Solutions LLC offers both nasal and nasopharyngeal swab rapid antigen testing for COVID-19. Rapid antigen tests are designed to detect proteins from the virus that causes COVID-19. A positive result indicates a current infection with COVID-19. Since this test only detects proteins from the COVID-19 virus, it may not be sufficient for all travel or confirmatory testing requirements.

COVID-19 Rapid Antibody Testing —
Results 60 minutes or less

Kore Lab Solutions LLC offers finger prick rapid antibody testing for COVID-19. Antibodies are proteins created by the body’s immune system after an infection or vaccina­tion. Rapid antibody tests look for antibodies in your blood to determine if you have had a past infection with COVID-19.

Kore Labs’ Antibody Testing Looks
For Two Antibodies: lgG and lgM

IgG Antibodies: This type of antibody can be produced by the body anywhere from 7 to 14 days after an infection and can be detected for several weeks to several months after the infection.

IgM Antibodies: This is the first type of antibody produced by the immune system, between 4 and 7 days after an infection starts. The presence of IgM antibodies generally indicates a recent infection.

Why Get Tested?

While many people with COVID-19 have mild or no symptoms, it is still possible for them to be infectious and pass the disease to friends, family and coworkers. Meanwhile, others don’t know that they’ve been in close contact (within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes) with someone with confirmed COVID-19. If you are out and about in the community, we recommend that you receive routine testing once a month or sooner if someone you’ve been in contact with tests positive or if you develop symptoms.

Rapid Strep/Flu Testing Involves:

We provide patients with common cold and flu-like symptoms the testing and care they need, including rapid strep throat and flu testing in Kansas City.

  • Strep Throat
  • Soreness/swelling of lymph nodes
  • Cough and congestion
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Chills, fever, and excessive sweating
  • Immune disorders
  • Flu diagnosis
  • Mononucleosis (mono)

What are rapid Strep and  Flu tests?

For rapid flu and strep testing, swabs are generally taken from the throat, tonsils, nose or mouth. The sample will be tested for streptococcus bacteria, mononucleosis viral activity, or influenza virus A or B. Mono tests can also be performed through blood samples, which can be done quickly in the ER for an accurate, rapid diagnosis. The sooner a case is diagnosed, the sooner treatment can begin. In the case of the flu and mono, especially, prompt treatment will reduce the risk of any related side effects or after-effects creating serious issues.

When are these tests an emergency?

A complex system of organs and body functions are needed to fight infection and viruses. Most cases of strep and flu do not require emergency care, but when the condition affects breathing or may involve swelling of the throat, weakness and fatigue, or other serious symptoms, it may be urgent to get tested so that virus or bacteria can be removed from the body as soon as possible.
