Question: 

Born 1963 and understand I may require a booster? Is it drop in or do I require an appointment?

Answer: 

From your question, its unclear which vaccine-preventable disease you are referring to, but you may be asking about measles. For individuals born before 1970 are generally assumed to have acquired immunity to measles from natural infection, and therefore MMR vaccine is not recommended for these individuals.
