On the date of each pop-up clinic, those eligible will have received a first dose of Pfizer at least 21 days ago; or received a first dose of Moderna at least 28 days ago and would like Pfizer as a second dose; or received a first dose of AstraZeneca at least 56 days ago and would like Pfizer as a second dose.

However, even if you not have these documents, organizers are asking people who want to be vaccinated to still attend. “Our team will to their best to help you get vaccinated,” said a notice on the hospital’s website.
