COVID-19 Safety Procedure for Immunization Appointments for All Clinic Locations
Our mission is to protect your health as well as our staff. To ensure your safety we have made the following adjustments to our appointment confirmation and visit process.
We are offering immunizations by Appointments Only. NO Walk-ins at this time!
We will call you within 48 hours to confirm your scheduled appointment. If we are unable to verbally confirm your appointment, your appointment time will be offered to the next client on our waiting list. It is very important that you call us back to verbally confirm, as our appointment schedule is limited.
Upon arrival, check in with our Security Guard at the Crown Point Facility or Reception in Truckee and offsite clinics to get your Consent Form to complete.
Seating available in front of the building at the Crown Point Facility.
Prior to entering the building (or vaccination area for offsite clinics), your Temperature will be taken and all clients must wear a Mask or Face Covering.
Please limit family members entering the building or vaccination area to a parent and the child receiving immunizations, if possible.
Must bring child's Immunization Record!
Thank you for your cooperation and assistance to keep our community safe and healthy.
Tdap vaccine to help prevent tetanus, diphtheria, and whooping cough.
All incoming 7th graders need proof of a Tdap vaccine and two doses of chickenpox vaccine before starting school.
Preteens may also need to catch up on other immunizations, including chickenpox (many don’t have their 2nd dose), MMR (measles, mumps, rubella), and hepatitis B. Two shots of chickenpox vaccine are now required before 7th grade in California.
