To provide the vaccine in a safe environment, District 2 Public Health ask everyone to follow these steps:

1. Vaccines are for residents who live or work in the counties that comprise District 2

2. Vaccines will be given by appointment ONLY – Walk-ins will not be accepted

3. We will limit the number of people in enclosed spaces by observing recommended social distances to prevent the spread of illness

4. Come to your appointment as close to the allotted time as possible to reduce the number of people in the waiting area (you may be asked to wait outside or in your car if you are too early)

5. If you have insurance, please bring your card. Insurance will help pay to offset the cost for administering the vaccine.

6. There will be no cost to anyone to get vaccinated. 

7. You should plan to remain for post-vaccination observation for up to 30-minutes

8. Prior to vaccination, review of product-specific safety information and consent will be required
