What should I expect on the day of my appointment?

COVID-19 vaccine appointments will be offered through Allen Fire Department based on the quantities of vaccines available. Walk-ins are not accepted. Once your appointment is scheduled, you will receive details about where to go and what to bring. On the day of your appointment, please:

  • Wear a face covering and clothing that provides easy access to your upper arm, such as a short sleeve or sleeveless shirt.
  • Arrive during the time period specified on your appointment/ticket confirmation. We are unable to reschedule missed appointments.
  • Present a printed copy of your appointment/ticket -OR- digital appointment/ticket confirmation. If receiving the shot due to your health care worker (Phase 1A) status, be prepared to show your workplace I.D.
  • Expect your appointment to take 20-30 minutes, including a mandatory 15-minute monitoring period immediately after the vaccine is given.
