Note: Individuals won’t be eligible to be vaccinated if any of the following scenarios apply:
- Known, unprotected exposure to COVID-19 within the last 14 days. An individual is eligible to be vaccinated after the quarantine period has ended.
- Current COVID-19 infection. The CDC recommends waiting 90 days after recovering from COVID-19 before starting the vaccine series.
- Immediate allergic reaction (within 4 hours) to polysorbate.
- Received another vaccine (of any kind) in the last 14 days. An individual is eligible 14 days after receiving any other vaccine.
On the day of the vaccine appointment, individuals should:
- Bring a smartphone so staff can assist in scheduling the second-dose appointment. Individuals without a smartphone should print out the email confirmation if possible and bring that copy to the appointment. The COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline (1-877-777-0566, available 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a week) can support people without smartphone or email access.
- Plan on staying onsite for a 15- to 30-minute observation period after vaccination.
- Not bring others with them to the appointment if possible. Intermountain has visitor and companion guidelines to help reduce the risk for COVID-19 exposure in our facilities. Our vaccine clinics allow one designated person to accompany an individual receiving a vaccine if the individual needs support maneuvering through the facility or the vaccine process.
