Should you experience side effects, most go away after a few days. If you have side effects that last longer than two days, please contact your pharmacist and/or provider for further guidance.
Your pharmacist will review any history of allergic reactions, to any medications and previous vaccinations, with you PRIOR to administering the vaccine.
If you are sick or not feeling well on the day you plan to receive your immunization, please come see us another day. Please do not come to the pharmacy or clinic site if you are sick or not feeling well.
While performing your vaccination, our Pharmacy Immunizer will be wearing a mask that covers both their nose and mouth. We may ask that you do the same. If you do not have an appropriate face mask, one will be provided to you at the pharmacy or clinic site.
The immunization administration area will be sanitized between each patient.
