As with any vaccine, if you are ill, you need to wait until you are feeling better to get it. Please do not come to any of our vaccinations clinics if you are ill (fever 100.4 or higher, cough, short of breath, muscle/body aches, sore throat, vomiting, diarrhea, etc.).

Please wear a face covering/mask if you are coming to any vaccination site. If the clinic location is busy, please remember to keep your distance from others to reduce the spread of illnesses.
