 What to Expect at Your Appointment to Get Vaccinated for COVID-19

Before Vaccination:

You must Pre-register for your appointment once self-scheduled.You need to wear mask that covers your nose & mouth during the appointment.

On day of appointment upon arrival, please wait in your car. You will receive a text from FPA about 15 minutes prior to your appointment time & reply “HERE” to wait for more instructions. If you don’t receive a text & it is your appointment time, please come on into front lobby/check-in.

When You Get Vaccinated:

You will receive a vaccination card or printout that tells you what COVID-19 vaccine you received, the date you received it, & where you received it.You will receive an electronic version of a EUA fact sheet that tells you more about the specific COVID-19 vaccine you are being offered to help you understand the risks & benefits of receiving that specific vaccine during your pre-registration.

You will answer some screening questions & sign a consent form for the COVID19 vaccine during your pre-registration.

All people who get a COVID-19 vaccine should be monitored on-site for 15 minutes to observe for any adverse reactions.

You will be scheduled for your 2nd dose in 28 days from your 1st dose by a member of staff while you wait.

After Vaccination:

With mostCOVID-19 vaccines, you will need two shots in order for them to work. Get the second shot even if you have side effects after the first one unless a vaccination provider tells you not to get a second shot. It takes time for your body to build protection after any vaccination. COVID-19 vaccines that require 2 shots may not protect you until a week or two after your second shot.

Use v-safe, a free, smartphone-based tool that uses text messaging & web surveys to provide personalized health check-ins after you receive a COVID-19 vaccination. V-safe also reminds you to get your second dose if you need one. Learn more at www.cdc.gov/vsafe.
