Any concerns with your medical history should be discussed with your doctor in advance so you can make the most informed decision for your health. If you have severe allergic reactions that require you to carry an epi pen please bring it to your appointment.

Please do not arrive any more than 15 minutes before your scheduled time. We do not have the ability to change your appointment time at this time.

Upon arrival, individuals have an opportunity to read and sign the vaccine waiver, then will be called to the vaccination area. Administering the vaccine generally takes no longer than 5 minutes. All individuals receiving vaccines will be asked to wait in an observation area for 15-30 minutes with medical staff to ensure there are no adverse initial reactions.
