Are you 75+?
Are you an essential worker*?

If you answered YES to either question, we have a vaccine ready for you!

*Who is considered an essential worker?

  • Healthcare workers
  • First responders (e.g., firefighters, police officers)

  • Food and agricultural workers
  • U.S. Postal Service workers

  • Grocery store workers, public transit workers
  • Those who work in the education sector (teachers and support staff members)

Essential workers are asked to present a valid work ID as proof when checking in for their appointment.
