  • Severe allergies or previous reaction to a vaccine
  • Pregnant or breastfeeding

If you are in one of these phases and any of the below apply to you, do not come until the condition is resolved.

  • Have a fever or are ill
  • Have received another vaccine within 14 days
  • Are currently in isolation for COVID-19

Important Information to Know Prior to Appointment

  • Do not arrive more than 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment.
  • Wear appropriate clothing to get a shot in upper arm
  • Bring proof of Hamilton County residency (if applicable)
  • Bring proof of Hamilton County employment (if applicable)
  • Bring proof of age (if applicable)
  • Bring COVID-19 Vaccine Encounter form (if possible; form available for download on registration page)
  • Be prepared to wait 20 minutes after shot
  • Be prepared for the entire process to take an hour or more

Vaccination Record Card

When patients receive their first dose with the Health Department, they will receive a Vaccination Record Card with the following important information.

  • The vaccine manufacturer (either Moderna or Pfizer)
  • The date the first dose of vaccine was given
  • The date the second vaccine dose is due 

It is important to keep the Vaccination Record Card because when making the appointment for the second dose of vaccine, it helps ensure the correct product is received and in the correct timeframe.  The current recommendation is that second dose vaccinations be received either on or after the recommended date on the Vaccination Record Card, not before.
