General Information:
  • UPDATED 7/9/21

  • Los Angeles County is experiencing an increase of COVID-19 cases due to the DELTA variant. Regardless of vaccination status, please continue wearing a mask when visiting the pharmacy.

  • We are actively monitoring the situation regarding COVID-19 booster doses, which are currently unavailable.

  • We hold COVID VACCINE CLINICS on most Monday/Wednesday/Friday mornings and also on Tuesdays/Thursdays in the afternoons.  Saturday appointments may also be available.

    • This will allow us to minimize disruption to our neighbors and to our existing patients while maximizing the number of people served.     

  • To make sure that no doses go to waste:    

    • We will do our best to take walk-ins, please be patient as we service scheduled patients first.      

    • Because doses have to be thawed and prepared ahead of time, we will not be able to make extra doses available, so late arrivals may need to be moved to a different day.  If you are running late, please call to make sure we save you a dose. 

  • PLEASE DON'T CALL THE PHARMACY with questions on  COVID-19 vaccines -- keep checking this page for updates and send your questions by email to info@courtyardpharmacy.com.  We appreciate your understand as our staff is working to organize and run the clinics while continuing to serve our regular patients. 

  • If you represent a business or a school, please contact us to arrange special clinic days.​

  • If you cannot make one of those clinic times, we will do our best to accommodate your needs, but note that we have to make appts in groupings of 6 patients (1 vial). 

  • If you are interested in volunteering to help us serve the community, contact us for further information at ross@courtyardpharmacy.com -- all help would be greatly appreciated.

VACCINE CLINICS

We are planning to offer the COVID vaccines in limited CLINICS as a way to vaccinate as many people as possible and as efficiently as possible without negatively impacting the surrounding businesses and in a way that will allow the pharmacy to continue our regular operations in a safe manner for our staff and our patients.   

We appreciate everyone's patience as we figure out the logistics!

CLINICS 
  • We will schedule patients per 15 minutes slots (6 pts in the afternoon slots, 12 pts in the morning slots) 

  • Wear short-sleeved tops that provide easy access to your upper arms 

  • Arrive 10 minutes prior to your appointment

  • All of the paperwork will be done online ahead of appointment time to keep the process as fast and as smooth as possible

  • Bring your picture ID and your insurance cards with you to the appointment

  • At the end of the clinic we will know if we have any unused doses and we can then accommodate any unscheduled patients.  (Because doses have to be thawed ahead of time, we will not be able to take more people than the number of remaining doses.)

Steps:
  1. Beginning 10 minutes prior to your appointment time, check-in with the GREETER to let them know you have arrived for your scheduled appointment.   They will check you off their list (or add you to the list if you are a walk-in)

  2. Proceed to the INTAKE DESK where your identity will be verified and your information will be double checked for accuracy and completeness.  They will hand you your form and your vaccine card, hold on to both as the vaccinator will need to see the information. 

  3. Wait to be called by the VACCINATOR

  4. Receive your vaccine 

  5. Proceed to the observation area where you will need to wait for at least 15 minutes (30 minute wait time for patients at higher risk of allergic reactions).   Keep your form and vaccine card handy.

  6. At the end of your observation time, turn your form in and get your vaccine card signed off -- CONGRATULATIONS, YOU ARE DONE!  

  7. The second appointment will be made for you by our staff and you will receive an emailed confirmation.  At that time, you can respond to it with alternative times if you need to move your appointment -- please reschedule only if absolutely necessary.
