COVID-19 Vaccination Standby Appointment Request
Our standby vaccination list has reached full capacity. As we work through the current list and we know what our allocation will be we will post a link to allow individuals to be added to the list for a future date.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. How can I get my first shot?
A. Vaccination is by appointment only and appointments are scheduled on our website only, never over the phone or by walking into the store. We are following the guidelines set forth by Sacramento County Department of Public Health. As of February 15tj, we are now able to vaccinate persons aged 65 years and older, law enforcement and emergency services, education and childcare workers, in addition to anyone in Phase 1A who has not yet received a vaccine. We cannot vaccinate persons outside of the tier system which is being followed by the Sacramento County Department of Public Health. Please click here to visit their website for more information. We cannot vaccinate residents from other counties unless you work in Sacramento County. You must be 18 years or older to qualify for the Moderna COVID vaccine.

Please note that your appointment will be canceled if you do not live or work in Sacramento County or if you do not meet the criteria as defined by the Sacramento County Department of Public Health for vaccination at the time the appointment is scheduled. Please note that we are only allocated vaccines for residents of or people working in Sacramento County. You will be required to provide this proof at the time of your appointment.
Q. When will I receive my second shot?
A. Please whenever possible return to the same location where you received your first shot to receive your second shot. Read the next FAQ regarding "Where will I receive my second shot" for more info. Do NOT schedule your second shot if you have not received your first shot. We will cancel any appointments which are scheduled for second shots if you have not already received your first shot from this pharmacy. Additionally, you will receive an automated phone call reminding you to schedule your second shot. As per CDC guidelines, there will be a minimum of 28 days from receipt of your first Moderna COVID vaccine and as of the most recent guidance issued the second shot should be scheduled within 42 days of the first shot. If you have further questions about this, please refer to the CDC Guidelines available by clicking here. If and ONLY if you received your first shot from Pucci's Pharmacy, you can click here to schedule your second shot. Remember to bring your COVID vaccine card with you at the time of your second appointment.
Q. Where will I receive my second shot?
A. Please return to the same location where you received your first shot to receive your second shot. If we vaccinated you at a facility other than the pharmacy, we will have your second dose with us when we return to that site. Please check with the person who contacted you to receive the first shot at the time of the notice when it is time to schedule your appointment for the second shot. That person will communicate with the pharmacist to distribute information about the time for the second shot clinic at the location you received the first shot. Do NOT bring additional persons with you as there will not be first shots available at second shot clinics. Do NOT enter the facility, remain outside and queue up at an appropriate distance to respect social distancing while wearing your mask in the same area you received your first dose.
Q. How can I get on your Standby List for extra vaccines?
A. Unfortunately we have reached our capacity and can no longer accept names for a standby list. Please do not call or email us to be added to the list. We cannot manage the number of calls and emails we are getting while also effectively caring for our patients.
Q. Can I come stand at the pharmacy at the end of the day to wait for a vaccine?
A. Absolutely NOT. Stay home and stay safe. We will call the highest risk persons on our wait list at the end of the day in the unlikely event that we have vaccinations remaining because someone did not show up for their scheduled appointment.
Q. How will I schedule my appointment for the second shot?
A. If and ONLY if you received your first shot from Pucci's Pharmacy, you can click here to schedule your second shot. Additionally, you will receive an automated phone call reminding you to schedule your second shot. As per CDC guidelines, there will be a minimum of 28 days from receipt of your first Moderna COVID vaccine and as of the most recent guidance issued the second shot should be scheduled within 42 days of the first shot.

Q. What if I don’t have internet access?
A. Please have a family member, friend, or neighbor help you schedule via the website.
A huge THANK YOU goes out to everyone who has helped us in the process of getting these shots delivered to the healthcare providers and long term care residents we have vaccinated thus far. THANK YOU to those individuals who have answered the call to get somewhere in a hurry to use up the remaining vaccines at some of the facilities where we had extra doses that would have gone to waste. THANK YOU to the nurses, dentists, dental assistants, pharmacists, pharmacy students, pharmacy technicians, medical assistants, veterinarians, and all the others who have volunteered and helped manage the clinics we’ve had in the store and offsite. We are overwhelmed with gratitude.
