We are not performing any COVID vaccinations at this time and have no immediate plans to do so.
There are things you can do ahead of time to get prepared for your shot. If you are or might be pregnant, are breastfeeding, have an auto-immune disorder, are immunocompromised, or if you have had a severe allergic reaction to an mRNA vaccine or to any of its components or its container, you will need to talk to your doctor or another health care provider to see if you should get the COVID-19 vaccine. Consider contacting them now to discuss so you will ready when the vaccine is available to you.
