WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING TO MY APPOINTMENT?

  • We do not need you to provide any form of ID or insurance information.
  • To avoid long wait lines at our drive-thru clinics, please arrive only a few minutes prior to your appointment time.
  • Please arrive wearing a mask.

I GOT VACCINATED, AM I GOOD TO GO? 

  • Getting vaccinated helps strengthen your body’s ability to fight against the virus.  It does not guarantee that you won’t get infected with COVID-19. 
  • You can get still get COVID in between doses and even after you get both doses (or the single dose of Janssen).  If you contract the virus after getting vaccinated, your symptoms will most likely be less severe than if you were not vaccinated. 
  • Reports of COVID-19 being contracted between first and second doses are on the rise.
  • It takes one to two weeks after receiving your second dose (or the single dose of Janssen) for your immune system to reach peak efficacy.
  • Until community immunity is reached, meaning that 70 to 85% of the entire population is vaccinated, the best ways to keep ourselves and others healthy continues to be:
  • Stay home as much as possible, avoid in-person social gatherings, and do not travel.
  • When in public, wear a mask, keep your distance from others, and practice good hygiene.
  • THE STATE OF COLORADO 'S MASK MANDATE REMAINS IN EFFECT.
  • EVEN AFTER YOU'RE VACCINATED, PLEASE CONTINUE TO FOLLOW PUBLIC HEALTH GUIDANCE.
