A few tips
- Wear short or loose-fitting sleeves to your appointment.
- Know someone who hasn’t been vaccinated yet? Sign up for an appointment together or attend walk-in hours.
- If you’ve already been vaccinated, help encourage those around you to get vaccinated as well. Here are some tips for having a COVID-19 vaccine conversation with your loved ones.
- If you under the age of 18, you can only receive the Pfizer vaccine. Check to see which locations are offering it. At our vaccine clinic, you will need to have a parent or guardian sign your consent form.
- Share your experience making an appointment and getting the vaccine so your friends and family know how easy it is and what to expect! If you take a selfie, tag us @jacksoncountyhd.
