Preparing for your vaccine

Do you have a vaccine appointment? Here are things to keep in mind before and after your vaccination.

Before you go, review your appointment email or letter to confirm your vaccine site location and time. Wear comfortable clothing so you can roll up your sleeve. Be prepared to follow instructions of staff at the vaccination site. Wear a mask; they are required.  Stay six feet away from others.

After your vaccine, you will undergo a monitoring period of at least 15 minutes to allow time to watch for possible side effects. 

You do not need to contact your health provider to tell them that you’ve had your vaccine. Your vaccine information will already be in the system. For more information, visit or call 800-232-4636.
