VACCINE FACT SHEET
UNACCOMPANIED MINOR FORM
Unaccompanied Minor Form
If your child is aged 16-17 and will be coming to the appointment on their own, we will need to have a completed Consent to Treat an Unaccompanied Minor form on file. If you have not previously completed this form for your child, please click below to complete the online form. This must be signed by a parent/legal guardian.
APPOINTMENT DAY CHECK-IN PROCESS
Please follow our current check-in process for NON-CLINIC traditional in-office appointments.
For in-Office Clinic appointments, patients should park in the South (large) parking lot and immediately enter the front of the building. We will have a check in desk for the vaccine clinic. After the patient is checked in, they will be guided to an exam room where a nurse will administer the vaccine. After your vaccination, you will be given your CDC Covid-19 Vaccination Record Card and will be given a timer while you wait in observation where a nurse will be monitoring for any post-vaccine reaction. When your timer is up, the observation nurse will assess the patient and release you!
For Drive Through Clinic appointments, vehicles should enter through the North parking lot and join the line as it moves under the overhang at the front of our building. Please make sure everyone in the vehicle is wearing a mask. A staff member will check you in and collect your required paperwork. Then a nurse will administer the vaccine. It is helpful for the patient to be wearing a short-sleeve shirt and to have their arm exposed and ready when the nurse approaches. After your vaccination, you will be given your CDC Covid-19 Vaccination Record Card (on Dose 1 visit only) and will be given a timer and will proceed to the South parking lot where another nurse will be monitoring for any post-vaccine reaction. Any patients with concerns or needing help from the nurse should HONK and the observation nurse will come to you. When your timer is up, FLASH your headlights and the observation nurse will assess the patient and release you!
We appreciate your cooperation with our nursing staff to administer the vaccine to our patients in the safest manner for all.
- Parents need to be prepared to assist in holding their child.
- Nurses have the authority to decline to administer the vaccine if your child is uncooperative.
The above process will be the SAME for your 2nd dose and/or Booster appointment. However, you will need to bring the CDC Covid-19 Vaccination Record Card with you so we may document subsequent doses. We will NOT be able to provide a second card, so please make sure you have it, and your Checklist for that appointment date with you when you come.
We are happy to be able to offer this service to our patients and are working hard to make sure the process runs as smoothly as possible. We appreciate your cooperation and patience!Back
