What to Expect at Your COVID-19 Vaccination Appointment

If Sauk Prairie Healthcare has called you to schedule your vaccination appointment, you have been given a specific date and time to be vaccinated. For safety, and to keep the vaccinations running on time without wasting vaccine, the following explains what to expect so that you can be prepared: 

  1. Wear a short-sleeved shirt for easy access to the vaccination site.
  2. Bring your photo ID. 
  3. Be on time. WAIT IN YOUR CAR until your scheduled appointment time, because only a limited number of people are allowed into the building at the same time due to the need to social distance.
  4. Enter our Wellspring Campus through the First Street/West entrance at 80 1st Street, Prairie du Sac. Watch for orange signs. Directions: https://goo.gl/maps/GEr2aEHmJYuYy5FYA
  5. Upon entry, you will go through the COVID-19 screener, including temperature, and must be symptom-free. If you have symptoms, your vaccination must be rescheduled at a later date.
  6. A mask must cover your nose and mouth at all times. No food or drink.
  7. Due to COVID-19 visitor restrictions, only those scheduled for the vaccination will be allowed into the building. The only exception to this is cognitively impaired or physically impaired people will be allowed one support person age 18 or older.
  8. You will sign a vaccination consent form.
  9. Time is not allotted during the vaccination appointment for vaccinators to answer personal health questions. If you have questions related to your health and the vaccine, please talk to your healthcare provider prior to your vaccination. 
  10. Allow about 20 minutes for the entire vaccination process, which includes 15 minutes of observation after the vaccine is given.
  11. During your 15-minute observation time, we encourage you to use your smartphone to register for V-safe, an after vaccination health checker. Information for how to register will be available to you during your observation time.
  12. You will not be charged an out-of-pocket cost. Sauk Prairie Healthcare will charge a vaccine administration fee to your health insurance plan, Medicare, Medicaid, or employer (if arrangements have been made for your employer to cover the cost). You will not receive a bill.
  13. If a conflict arises or you currently have COVID19, please cancel your appointment so that the vaccine can be used for someone else and not go to waste. To cancel your appointment, call 608-644-3050 and leave a voicemail including your name, phone number, date and time of appointment you need to cancel.
