    Get the Vaccine

    • Be sure to arrive early to your appointment. 
    • If you have it, bring your identification card and health insurance information.
    • Your provider may also require you to fill out some paperwork ahead of time.
    • When you receive the COVID-19 vaccine, the provider should give you a vaccination card that lists which vaccine you received, the date you received it, and where you received it. Please keep this card for your records.
    • You may be asked to remain resting for up to 30 minutes after being vaccinated so you can be observed for any allergic reaction.
    • The vaccine may require two doses for the most protection. Please confirm your next appointment for your second dose with your provider before leaving. Verify you will receive two doses of the same vaccine. See which vaccines require two shots and the timing between each dose.
