 We are offering scheduled and select walk-in appointments and for Pfizer, Moderna, and Janssen (J&J) COVID-19 vaccines on Monday through Friday. For safety and efficiency reasons due to the increased demand for vaccines and booster doses, we ask that you please use our online scheduler and refrain from directing calls to the store related to vaccines.

By utilizing the scheduling website, you have the ability to select a date and time that works best with your schedule. 

Use the "Sign-Up Here" Link in the next column to book an appointment for your COVID Booster

 

If possible, please refrain from contacting pharmacy staff in regards to the vaccine unless you have an urgent question. Contacting the store regarding COVID-19 vaccine availability interferes with our pharmacy's ability to serve our patients safely and quickly. We are trying to help our community as best and as efficiently as we can. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

 

We're all in this together!
