What health considerations should I consider before scheduling an appointment?
If you have had a severe allergic reaction to any vaccine or injectable therapy (intramuscular, intravenous, or subcutaneous), please tell the care team when you come in for your vaccination.
If you have a severe allergic reaction to the first COVID-19 vaccine, you should not receive the second booster vaccine at this time.
If you received monoclonal antibodies or convalescent plasma as part of COVID-19 treatment, you should defer the vaccine for at least 90 days after treatment.
If you are immunocompromised, please talk to your healthcare provider before receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.

What do I need to bring to my appointment?
You will need to present a valid photo ID and insurance card, if health insurance is carried by the individual. Some support documents may be required at time of visit.
Can I bring a caregiver to my appointment?
The safety of our patients and caregivers is our top priority. To maintain social distancing measures at our vaccination site, we ask that patients who need assistance bring only one caregiver with them to their vaccination appointment. Minimizing the number of people in these spaces will help to keep everyone safe. In addition, everyone attending the appointment must wear a mask.
How much does the COVID-19 vaccine cost?
There is NO-COST and NO-OUT-OF-POCKET expense to receive the COVID-19 vaccination. If you are insured, a minor charge will be billed to your insurance carrier for the administration of each vaccination. If you are uninsured, you will NOT receive a bill for administrative fees. We vaccinate everyone, including the uninsured, regardless of ability to pay.
If I receive the 2-dose Moderna vaccine, when and where will I get my second dose?
Your appointment is automatically scheduled during your first visit. During your first visit with us, you will be presented with a Vaccination Record card indicating the date of your second appointment. It will take approximately 28 days to receive your second dose.
