How do I know if the Covid-19 vaccine is safe?

We are gathering our information from common public sources to determine its safety and effectiveness. It is also a good idea to consult with your health care provider regarding your personal care. Here are some resources that we find helpful: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/vaccine-benefits.html https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/safety.html

Would you recommend getting the vaccine?

Yes, we would recommend persons identified as a candidate consider getting the vaccine, weighing the benefits vs the risks. To find more information about effectiveness and possible risks go here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/vaccine-benefits.html. When it becomes available to the public, it is important for each person to work with their health care provider to weigh the benefits vs the risks and make an informed decision. Please see some information below on those who should NOT get the vaccine.

CDC considers a history of the following to be reason NOT to get vaccinated with either the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines:

  • Severe allergic reaction (e.g., anaphylaxis) after a previous dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine or any of its components
  • Immediate allergic reaction of any severity to a previous dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine or any of its components (including polyethylene glycol [PEG])*
  • Immediate allergic reaction of any severity to polysorbate (due to potential cross-reactive hypersensitivity with the vaccine ingredient PEG)*
How does the vaccine work?

Each vaccine works a little different. Some vaccines require two doses and another only requires one dose. Full effectiveness from the vaccine will be 2 weeks after receiving a second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna, or 2 weeks after one dose of the Johnson & Johnson. A more in-depth overview of how the vaccines work can be found here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/different-vaccines/how-they-work.html?s_cid=10491:how%20the%20covid%20vaccine%20works:sem.ga:p:RG:GM:gen:PTN:FY21

How much does the vaccine cost?

Vaccine doses purchased with U.S. taxpayer dollars will be given to the American people at no cost. However, vaccine providers will be able to charge administration fees for giving or administering the shot to someone. Vaccine providers can get this fee reimbursed by the patient’s public or private insurance company or, for uninsured patients, by the Health Resources and Services Administration’s Provider Relief Fund.

If I have already had COVID, should I still receive the vaccine?

Yes. Early evidence suggests that the vaccine provides more superior protection than the immunity obtained from a previous infection. Follow this link to learn more about this fact and more: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/vaccine-benefits.html

OUR COMMITMENT TO SERVING OUR CUSTOMERS

We recognize everyone has different circumstances and may be in need of our services that open later than our store (e.g. pharmacy) so we will keep hours open to everyone at all times but ask that you honor the above time as much as possible. We appreciate your understanding and support. We also recommend using our online grocery delivery and pickup services at TrigsToGo.com.

 

PRODUCT AVAILABILITY

When are you receiving more product?
We are working with our suppliers to replenish product as quickly as possible. We have no reason to expect long-term shortages for the vast majority of our products, but we may experience sporadic product shortages.

What is Trig's doing to ensure product availability?
We may periodically need to implement temporary purchase limits on high-demand products. Look for signage in-store or indications of limited quantities while shopping on TrigsToGo.com for specific quantity restrictions.

Will Trig's be offering rain checks?
Because we can’t predict the supply of products or what inventory levels may be, we will not be offering rain checks until further notice.

 

HEALTH AND SAFETY

What is Trig's doing to ensure the health and safety of its customers and associates?

  • Some self-serve food stations such as the salad bars, and olive bars will be closed until further notice
  • Many seating and café areas are currently closed to guest use. Those that are reopened are sanitized frequently.
  • Beer and kombucha on tap are not available at this time.
  • Out of respect for our associates and other guests, we ask that you please practice social distancing when shopping in our stores.
  • We are reinforcing our already stringent sanitation efforts in our stores, distribution center, manufacturing facility and main office.
  • We are asking our associates to stay home if they feel unwell and are supporting them financially to enable this. We encourage our guests to use our online grocery shopping service for pickup or contactless delivery at TrigsToGo.com if you are feeling ill.
  • We have installed plexiglass shields in close contact areas of the store for the protection of our associates and guests.
  • We require all associates and vendors to wear masks unless they are fully vaccinated. We strongly encourage all guests to wear a face covering unless they are fully vaccinated, in accordance with CDC guidance. In communities in which a local mask ordinance remains in place, we will comply with those guidelines and require masks be worn in that facility.
     

What is Trig's doing to increase sanitation efforts?

In addition to already strict sanitation and food safety standards, we’ve put in place additional resources dedicated to cleaning at each store. We also have hand sanitizer and cart wipes available throughout the store for guest use.

How is Trig's enforcing social distancing in its stores?
We have posted signs and floor decals to encourage the practice of social distancing, consistent with the recommendations from public health officials.

Is Trig's currently accepting returns?
To mitigate risk, we will generally not be accepting returns or issuing refunds at this time. However, we always stand behind our products and will issue a refund or exchange if a quality issue arises.

Will Trig's continue to have food and beverage sampling in the store?
We have a limited number of product demonstrations and sampling events. Any such event will be staffed, with precautionary measures in place so you can feel confident as you discover new offerings in our stores.
