Appointments will not be scheduled for these clinics. There is no charge for the vaccine. Individuals will need to bring identification.

For those receiving their second dose of the Moderna vaccine, individuals MUST bring their COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card, which was provided when their first dose was received. This will allow ADPH to confirm the second dose is received within the recommended time frame. Those receiving their second dose of vaccine will be served in a designated line.

Individuals are encouraged to plan for extended wait times in their vehicles, as this will be a drive-through only clinic. Individuals are encouraged to bring water, snacks and plan accordingly.
