What precautions do people that are immunocompromised, frail, elderly, or have mobility issues, etc. have to follow at the vaccination site? Will the immunization sites be safe?

Answer: 
Yes, the immunization sites will be safe. Clinic measures have been put in place to ensure safety and to adhere to protocols that prevent the spread of COVID-19. Health authorities and vaccination clinics are taking all efforts to stop the spread of the virus, including:
  • Physical distancing will be enforced in any lineups and clinic settings. 
  • People will be screened before they go in for their appointments. 
  • Everyone will be wearing masks. People who are medically exempt from wearing masks will be immunized in a separate location. 
  • All clinic locations will be wheelchair accessible.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available.
