The Health Department does not reschedule missed appointments or appointments that are set at an inconvenient time.

  • Appointment confirmation

  • Personal mobility devices such as wheelchairs, canes, etc., if needed

Prepare for your visit

What to wear
Vaccinations are given in the upper arm. Wear loose, comfortable clothing that will allow access to your upper arm while maintaining a reasonable amount of modesty.

Masks, consistent with CDC guidance, are required throughout the vaccination site. 

  • Most homemade and store-bought masks are appropriate and provide a level of protection for both the wearer and those around them. This includes the gaiter style face coverings which are sufficient if they are made of two layers.
  • Face shields alone do not meet these requirements; it is acceptable to wear a shield in addition to a face covering.
  • Face coverings with a vent or exhaust valve do not meet this requirement.

Medications
Take your medications as prescribed by your physician.

Food and Drink
You do not need to limit food or water prior to receiving your vaccine.

What to expect

  • When you arrive at the vaccination site, we request that you remain in your vehicle until 10 minutes before your appointment time. Individuals seeking vaccine as a walk-in should proceed to the entrance.
  • Please have your insurance card and identification ready, if applicable, at check-in. There is no charge for vaccine. Insurance will be filed, if available. This will not result in a charge to you.
  • Your second dose appointment will be made at check-in.
  • Prior to receiving your vaccine, please let someone know if you need to use the restroom. After receiving the vaccine, you will not be able to leave the observation area for any reason for 15-30 minutes.
  • When your observation period is complete, visit the check-out area before you leave.

Second-dose appointments

Second-dose appointments are made during the first-appointment visit at vaccine sites provided by the Gwinnett, Newton and Rockdale County Health Department.

CDC Vaccination Cards

CDC vaccination cards are free.

If you are scheduled to receive your second dose of vaccine at one of our COVID-19 vaccination sites, you will receive a CDC vaccination card at your second dose appointment.

If you received both doses of vaccine but did not receive a CDC vaccination card, you can receive one by visiting one of our health centers currently providing non-COVID immunizations. All our health centers, except Buford, can assist you with obtaining a card. You’ll need to bring proof of the COVID-19 vaccination you received at both vaccine appointments. If you lost this documentation, our health centers can provide a copy of your immunization record.

Immunization Records Request
