In the event that someone does not show up for their scheduled appointment, we will call individuals from our waiting list in the order that names were entered. To add your name to the waiting list, please click here.
What should I bring with me to my appointment?
You will need to bring the following items with you on the day of your appointment:
- A completed and signed Consent Form
- A copy of your Medicare/Insurance Card
- A copy of your ID or Driver’s License
What should I wear to my appointment?
It is recommended that participants wear a short sleeve shirt so that their arm can easily be accessed for the injection. Masks will be required to be worn.
When should I arrive for my appointment?
Please do not arrive any earlier than 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment. Anyone arriving earlier than 15 minutes will be asked to sit in their vehicle.
What can I expect when I arrive for my appointment?
There will be parking lot attendants who will help direct traffic to available parking in the lot. After you park and if it is no more than 15 minutes prior to your appointment time, you will proceed to the main entrance of the school. Please remember to be mindful of social distancing inside of the facility. After you check-in for your appointment, a copy of your insurance card will be collected. You can expedite your experience by bringing a copy of your insurance card with you. Copy machines will be available if you are unable to bring a copy with you. Please note, if you do not have insurance, you will still be able to receive a vaccine and a voucher from the County will be utilized to cover the costs. After the insurance table, you will be directed to the Clinic area in Hurley Hall. Once you receive your vaccination, you will be directed to wait in for 15 minutes in a waiting area. Here, you will receive water and your CDC vaccination card. After you have concluded your wait time, you will proceed out the southeast door into the parking lot area.
Can I bring my child(ren) with me to my appointment?
Due to limited space, we do ask that all children remain at home. If you find that you are in a pinch and have no other options, we will permit the child(ren) to enter the Clinic with you. Your child(ren) must remain with you the entire time.
Is there a cost for the vaccination?
There is no out of cost pocket for those who are insured or those who are uninsured. So that we can bill the appropriate party accurately, we do ask that you bring a copy of your Medicare or Insurance Card with you. For those that are uninsured, Jewel Osco Pharmacy will take care of billing the federal government accordingly.
