  • If you cannot make a copy, bring your insurance card to your appointment. Copies can also be made at the Southbury Public Library during library open hours for $0.10 per page.

5. Arrive at the clinic for your appointed time. Plan on at least 30-45 minutes at the clinic. There will be a 15-minute waiting time after you receive your vaccine for precautionary observation.
