It's Your Turn

Demand for vaccines is high, but we are adding new appointments as vaccine becomes available. If you have signed up for VaxLB notifications, we will notify you when there are appointments available for the various groups. We appreciate your patience. 

V-Safe

After receiving your vaccine, CDC encourages everyone to register for V-Safe to tell CDC of any side effects after getting the COVID-19 vaccine. You will also get reminders for second vaccine doses. V-Safe cannot schedule vaccine appointments, but it is a great way to communicate with the CDC and add to the pool of information around the vaccine efficacy and safety.
