Each person entering the vaccination clinic must complete an individual screen. You have three options to complete the screening.
You will be given a handout to read with information about the vaccine. The handout will also have a list of questions the health care provider will ask you in Step 5.
If you're told not to enter the vaccination clinic because you're at increased risk of COVID-19 transmission, you will need to reschedule your appointment.
You will be called to a registration desk where your green health card will be scanned.
You will be directed to a table to get your COVID-19 vaccination.
If you have fainted, or became dizzy with previous vaccinations or procedures, or if you have a high level of fear about injections, tell the health care provider so that appropriate supports can be offered.
If the health care provider at the vaccination clinic advised you to defer your COVID-19 vaccination, you will need to reschedule your appointment.
You will sit in our waiting area for 15 minutes after getting vaccinated. Sit on a chair that has papers on the seat. This means your chair has been cleaned and disinfected. Make sure the sticker you're given is visible. Don't put your coat or sweater on top of the sticker.
You will receive proof of vaccination that you can take with you.
