    Frequently Asked Questions

    Do I have to wait after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine? 

    • No. You no longer need to wait 14 days between vaccinations according to current CDC guidance.

    Who should get vaccinated this season? 

    • According to the CDC, Everyone 6 months and older should get the flu vaccine every season with rare exceptions. Vaccination is particularly important for people who are at high risk of serious complications from influenza.

    When should I get a vaccine this year? 

    • The CDC recommends getting a flu vaccine early in the fall, with September and October being generally good times. Ideally, everyone should be vaccinated by the end of October.

    Can I get season flu even though I got a flu vaccine this year?

    • According to the CDC, it is possible to get sick with flu even if you have been vaccinated (although the only way to know for sure is through a flu test). This is possible for several reasons:
    • You may have been exposed to a flu virus shortly before getting vaccinated or during the period that it takes the body to gain protection after vaccination.
    • You may be exposed to a flu virus that is not included in the seasonal flu vaccine. Each year, there are many types of flu viruses that circulate. A flu vaccine is made to protect against the 4 flu viruses that research suggests will be most common.
    • Some people, unfortunately, can become infected with a flu virus that the vaccine is designed to protect against, despite getting vaccinated. However, flu vaccination has been shown to reduce severity of illness in people who get vaccinated but still get sick.

    What do I do once I arrive at the drive thru or walk-up vaccination site? 

    • When entering the vaccination site, please follow directional signs. Remove all jackets and coats and expose your upper left or right arm (whichever is next to the vehicle door window). Please stay alert and silence cellphones.

    Should I wear a mask?

    • In order to keep our staff safe and healthy, please ensure that all passengers in vehicles (for drive thru) and all patients/care givers (in-person) are wearing a mask or face covering.

    At the drive thru clinics, will I be asked to exit my vehicle? 

    • Vaccinations will be given in patient vehicles; children under the age of 6 may need to exit the vehicle.

     How much time should I allow?

    • We ask that you allow 20 – 30 minutes to complete the vaccination process.

    At the drive thru clinics, can more than one person in a vehicle receive a flu vaccination?

    • Absolutely and we encourage this! As long as each person has an appointment, we will be able to provide vaccinations to more than one individual in a vehicle. We ask that you bring the consent form and checklist for each individual who will receive the vaccine.
