Save time at your appointment by completing your registration and consent forms online in advance. You will receive an email reminder 24 hours before your appointment. Bring your COVID-19 vaccination card to your booster appointment; if you do not have your card, vaccinators will provide you with a new one at the clinic with information about your bivalent booster.

- Get vaccinated early. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body and provide protection against the flu.
