COVID-19 Vaccination Appointments
Please read the directions on this page and find the link that is appropriate for your vaccine request.
Effective November 19, 2021 - Due to overwhelming demand and the need to provide a safe healthcare environment, COVID vaccination is available by appointment only until further notice. Walk in appointments are no longer available at this location.
When the scheduling application displays "We couldn't find any times close to your selection. Please try again a different day or time.", it is because we are fully booked at that time. As with most healthcare providers, we are operating with limited staffing resources, and we are not able to add you on to the already full schedule. Please do not call, text, or email to ask if you can be added on. We are unable to accommodate these requests while still safely providing pharmacy services.

Q. Why are you asking for my insurance information?
A. Insurance companies are required by the federal government to reimburse pharmacies for providing COVID vaccines. Your insurance information will be used to obtain reimbursement from your insurance company. You may NOT pay out of pocket for a COVID vaccine. Private payment is prohibited by the contract each provider signed to be able to provide COVID vaccines.
Q. What if I am uninsured?
A. COVID vaccines are provided to all persons, including those who are uninsured, at no charge. Please provide whatever documentation you have to verify your identity so that we may appropriately record your vaccination and submit it to the program for uninsured persons. A driver's license, state ID, passport, consular ID, or similar will be acceptable.
Q. How will I schedule my appointment for the second dose of COVID vaccine?
A. As per CDC guidelines, there will be a minimum of 28 days from administration of your first Moderna COVID vaccine and a minimum of 21 days from administration of your first Pfizer COVID vaccine. As of the most recent guidance issued the second dose should be scheduled within 42 days of the first dose. If you are after 42 days, you should not re-start the vaccine series but should get your second dose as soon as possible. If you have further questions about this, please refer to the CDC Guidelines available by clicking here.
A huge THANK YOU goes out to everyone who has helped us in the process of getting these shots delivered to all of the patients 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.
