Today is the beginning of your health for tomorrow
With the arrival of the highly anticipated COVID-19 vaccine, there is a lot of information to take in and process. We know you and your family may have questions about the vaccine and other COVID-related concerns, which is why CHRISTUS Santa Rosa wants you to know we are right there with you every step of the way. Today is the beginning of your health for tomorrow.
Starting the week of January 4th, a select few CHRISTUS clinics began accepting appointments to vaccinate Phase 1B recipients. As our hospitals continue to care for patients with COVID and other medical needs, we will be offering these vaccinations through our clinics, as they are better prepared to provide this type of care to large groups of the public.
Please note, an online appointment is required to receive the vaccine. CHRISTUS clinics and urgent cares are not scheduling any appointments via phone or in-person. All appointment requests for the vaccine will need to follow the process below:
Step 1: To see if you are eligible to receive the vaccine, click the yellow chat icon to your right to connect you with Christy, our virtual assistant.
Step 2: Christy, our virtual assistant, will ask you a few screening questions to ensure you are eligible for the vaccine.
Step 3: If you qualify for the vaccine, Christy will help you find an appointment at the nearest available CHRISTUS clinic or urgent care. If registration is full, check back daily as slots become available.
Step 4: Complete your registration by filling out all patient information online and confirming your appointment date, time and clinic location.
If you have questions about your personal health concerns or history and how that might be impacted by vaccination, we encourage you to talk with your primary care provider, who knows your conditions and your history and can advise you personally. If you do not have a primary care provider, you can find one here.
