It is important to note that while eligibility guidelines will include residents age 16 or older, each vaccination site may vary based on manufacturer’s approval. Moderna is currently available for individuals age 18 and older while Pfizer is available for those age 16 and older.
In most cases, you will receive your second dose where you received your first. Follow instructions on scheduling your second dose from the site.
Appointments are available on a first come, first served basis. There will not be a waitlist; however, additional appointments will be available based on vaccine availability.
You cannot receive the COVID vaccine if you have received any other vaccinations within 14 days prior to your appointment. You may be asked to show an ID for verification of employment.
Patients will need to wear a face covering, practice social distancing, and plan to allow at least 15 minutes for observation after the vaccination. Please limit the number of individuals in your party that are not receiving the vaccine and wear clothing to allow easy access to the upper portion of the arm for the injection.
The vaccine itself is free but providers may seek appropriate reimbursement from the recipient’s plan or program (e.g., private health insurance, Medicare, Medicaid) for a vaccine administration fee. You will not be turned away if you do not have insurance or charged the balance of the bill for the vaccine. If you have questions about your specific coverage, please call the number on the back of your insurance card.
