Preparing for Your COVID Vaccine at Adelante

Adelante has a limited supply of COVID vaccines and is making those available to qualifying patients through regular patient visits and with select drive-through events at our health centers.  

If you are eligible for the vaccine, call our Patient Support Center at 1-877-809-5092 to learn more about what options are available in your area.  Supplies are still changing regularly and we appreciate your patience as we work to vaccinate as many people as possible.

This page will help you prepare for your vaccine and answers the most commonly asked questions with links to CDC resources.  There are just a few extra notes for those attending a drive-through event below the general information as well.

For everyone receiving a vaccine

Before you arrive for your appointment: 

During your appointment: 

  • Wear a mask and maintain social distance whenever possible
  • Provide honest answers to our medical team as they review your COVID Informed Consent and Screening Checklist for  your specific circumstances 
  • Plan on spending 15 to 30 minutes in observation following your vaccine 

After you receive the vaccine:  

If you are attending a drive-through vaccine event

  • Please review the “where to enter” instructions in your reminder text.  To maintain one-way traffic flow, each health center has designated an entrance and exit.  For a detailed map, click on the health center you will be visiting:
  • Plan on arriving on time for your appointment.  If you are in line at the time of your appointment, you will receive the vaccine.  
  • To keep everyone safe:
    • Wear a mask 
    • Remain in your car 
    • Observe traffic directions and drive slowly and safely
  • Expect to spend approximately one hour on-site.  After receiving the vaccine, you will be directed to an observation parking area and be monitored for side effects.  Most people will be held for 15 minutes, but those who have had reactions to components of the vaccine should remain for 30 minutes.
