You will be asked to sign an attestation at the time of your vaccine ensuring that you meet criteria. You will need to bring evidence of eligibility to your appointment such as a government-issued photo ID showing residence and date of birth, badge from your work, a paystub, or documentation from your employer. Other forms of documentation may be acceptable to prove eligibility.
Please Note: If you are scheduling for an adult who is unable to read and understand information about the vaccine and sign a consent form a legal representative (person legally authorized to consent for medical care) must be present at the appointment to sign the consent form and attestation, or the forms need to be printed and signed by the legal representative ahead of time and brought to the vaccination appointment. Forms can be found here.
