Additional Information

We want to make sure you have the information you need to answer your questions about the new COVID-19 vaccine. Below are some frequently asked questions:

  • Will it work? There are three vaccines available now. They are all highly effective at preventing serious illness and hospital admissions from COVID-19.
  • How do I get a vaccine? Once you pre-register, you will receive updates when you are able to schedule an appointment to receive a vaccine.
  • What does it cost? There is no cost for anyone to receive a vaccine.
  • What should I expect when I get a vaccine? Depending on the type of vaccine you receive, you will need one or two doses to ensure you are protected from COVID-19. You do not need to bring a government-issued ID and cannot be turned away for not having ID. However, you should bring some form of ID if possible to make sure the right person receives the vaccine.
