COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Health considerations before you schedule your appointment.

  • If you have had a severe allergic reaction to any vaccine or injectable therapy (intramuscular, intravenous, or subcutaneous), please tell the care team when you come in for your vaccination.
  • If you have a severe allergic reaction to the first COVID-19 vaccine, you should not receive the second booster vaccine at this time.
  • If you had COVID-19 in the past 90 days, you may choose to defer the COVID-19 vaccine at this time. Reinfection is uncommon in the 90 days after the initial infection. Please note: You must have recovered from COVID-19 at the time you receive the vaccine.

  • If you are pregnant, suspect you are pregnant, or are breastfeeding, please talk to your pregnancy healthcare provider before receiving the vaccine.
