Your COVID-19 vaccine appointment: Next steps

Thank you for scheduling your appointment for the COVID-19 vaccine. Here’s what you should know about your appointment:

  • It is extremely important that you keep your appointment, or cancel in advance. We cannot waste any doses. If you need to cancel your appointment, call 844-434-2778 as soon as possible.
  • You should not get the COVID-19 vaccine if you have gotten any other vaccines in the last 14 days.
  • When you arrive for your appointment, we will ask you to show proof of eligibility such as an ID card. We will also ask you to sign a COVID-19 vaccine consent form and a statement saying you are in an eligible group.
  • If you have insurance, we will bill your insurance for your vaccine. If you don’t have insurance, it’s ok. No one will pay any out-of-pocket fees for the COVID-19 vaccine.
  • After you get your first dose, you will need to schedule your second dose 28 days later. You can schedule your second dose through MyChart.
  • Even after you get both doses, it is important to continue to wear a face covering (covering your nose and mouth), practice social distancing, and wash your hands frequently.
  • Please make sure you keep your appointment, so we don’t waste any vaccine. Once we open a bottle of vaccine, we have to use it quickly. If you need to cancel your appointment, please call 844-434-2778.
