Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to be a current Loma Linda University Health patient to schedule an appointment?

No, you do not need to be a current patient to schedule an appointment. If you’re scheduling an appointment at one of our locations, you will be prompted to create an account for our patient portal, MyChart. Creating a MyChart account will allow easier check-in when receiving your vaccine. Please create a MyChart account when asked to do so during the scheduling process (use the activation code in your appointment confirmation email).

How can I get my vaccination record?

You can get a digital copy of your COVID-19 vaccination record using California's online portal.

If you're a current Loma Linda University Health patient, you can view your COVID-19 vaccination record using MyChart. After logging in, go to "Health" and then "Immunizations."

Which vaccine should I get?

You should get the first COVID-19 vaccine made available to you. Each vaccine has been shown to be highly effective at preventing hospitalization and death caused by serious COVID-19 illness. Currently, appointments are available for the Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson (J&J) vaccines.

Teens aged 12-17 are only eligible to receive the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.

How and when do I schedule my second dose appointment?

If you receive the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine at one of our locations, our staff will schedule your second dose appointment at your first dose appointment. The J&J vaccine does not require a second dose.

If you’re getting vaccinated at one of our locations, please do not schedule a second dose appointment online (as it will be canceled). To cancel your second dose appointment, please email pd2@llu.edu.

Our locations are following the protocols for scheduling second dose appointments that have been approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The guidelines state you should receive your second dose after the 21st day and up to six weeks for the Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine and after the 28th day and up to six weeks for the Moderna vaccine. All second dose appointments will be scheduled in that timeframe.

How do I cancel or reschedule my appointment?

Please contact the vaccine clinic where your appointment is scheduled to cancel or reschedule.

What happens before, during and after my vaccination?
