Here's what is required and what's not required:


1. NAME AND DATE OF BIRTH ARE REQUIRED.

Everyone who seeks to receive the Covid Vaccine MUST provide

their name and date of birth.


2. UNIQUE EMAIL ADDRESS IS REQUIRED FOR REGISTRATION.

Unique email addresses are required for the current registration

process and 2 dose vaccine. However, you could create a brand

new email address just for this purpose.


3. PROOF OF IMMIGRATION STATUS IS NOT REQUIRED.

Sites will NOT ask for proof of immigration status.


4. PHOTO ID IS NOT REQUIRED.

Vaccine sites may request documentation, but you are not

required to have it to receive the vaccine and you cannot be

denied access to the vaccine for not having ID.


5. PROVIDING AN ADDRESS IS OPTIONAL.

If an individual does not want to provide their home

address they can use the address of the vaccination

site or a community based organization.
