We’re happy to hear that you’ve reserved a dose for one of our immunization clinics!

If you score a coveted spot, time to start the celebration… and get some work done! Below are a number of steps to complete in anticipation of your appointment.

Step 1

Help us reduce waste!

During signup you were asked to download documents you are legally required to receive.

We’re including them here just in case you can’t find them and want a copy.

Download them.

Step 2

Prepare for Clinic Day

Please download this document which goes over what you need to bring with you to the clinic, how it will work at the clinic, and what to expect.

I can’t stress enough: wear a T-Shirt! We’re giving you an immunization, so plan on easy access to your upper arm (deltoid muscle).

Medicare cards MUST be the red, white, and blue Part A and B cards. We need the newer ones that DO NOT have your social security number on it.

4/2022 Update: The Uninsured/Under-insured COVID-19 Vaccine program has NOT been funded, and therefore people who are uninsured or under-insured may have to pay for their dose!

Step 3

Take Time to Answer Your Questions

After you have a confirmed appointment and the excitement has really died down, please return here and read up on the vaccine. We will have limited time available to go over basic, frequently asked questions at the vaccine clinic.

Below are a number of resources we have created to help you feel better about the vaccine.

We also offer support during Village Apothecary business hours at

Step 4

Get Vaccinated and Celebrate

Show up to the clinic 10 minutes early but do not get out of your car until exactly 5 minutes before your appointment to ensure optimal flow and to reduce confusion at the clinic.

If you have any questions about logistics, we are accepting them via email only. Please DO NOT call the store.
