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.

Will this season’s flu vaccine match be affected by the low levels of flu virus activity last season? 

  • The CDC conducts year-round surveillance of circulating flu viruses and uses this and other sources of information to select the virus to include in vaccine production. Although there were fewer flu viruses available to inform this selection process, the circulating viruses were well sampled. Therefore, CDC does not believe that the fewer flu viruses will impact the match between circulating viruses and vaccine viruses. However, flu viruses are constantly changing so there is always the possibility of a less than optimal match. 

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? 

  • We will be vaccinating while you are in your vehicle. No 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.
