Before going to your appointment

Once your appointment is booked, find out what you need to know before your COVID-19 vaccine appointment.

Reasons to reschedule your appointment

  • If you're sick or have COVID-19 symptoms, you shouldn't get the vaccine. Wait until you're better to get vaccinated.
  • If you've had another type of vaccine, you should wait 14 days before receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. After receiving your second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, you shouldn't receive any other vaccines for 28 days. If for some reason you need another vaccine within 28 days, discuss this with your doctor or health care provider.

You can reschedule your appointment online or by calling 1-833-943-3900.

Protect yourself

We know many are anxious to get the vaccine, including those who are considered higher-risk or have other underlying health conditions. Please continue to follow all public health guidelines to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.
