How do I know if I am eligible to receive the vaccine? Do I need proof?
COVID-19 vaccine distribution planning is currently happening at federal, state, and local levels of government, with vaccine rollout occurring in a phased approach to minimize death and reduce transmission in high-risk groups. Due to this phased approach, if you are in one of the eligibility categories in your county or state for the current phase, you will need to bring specific forms of identification and/or official documentation with you on the day of the appointment to prove your eligibility. See more details from the CDC here.
When booking an appointment, you will be asked a series of questions (both medical and occupational) that will assist you in determining your eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccine. Curative will also notify you of the documents needed to prove your eligibility at the appointment.

However, note that we cannot guarantee that you will get a second dose appointment with Curative due to limited supply if you book this way. If you are unable to find an appointment, we recommend visiting the site where you received your first dose and asking our staff for assistance.
Note that it is very important that the same vaccine type be used for both your 1st and 2nd doses. For example, if your first dose was the Moderna vaccine, your second dose should also be Moderna.
