We encourage individuals to whichever vaccine is available to them first. Unless directed by your doctor or due to a contraindication to a specific vaccine (due to allergies for example) we do NOT recommend waiting to get a specific COVID-19 vaccine. We cannot at this time take requests for a specific vaccine type as we cannot guarantee what type of vaccine we receive each week or in what quantities.
