We want you to be able to make your COVID-19 vaccine appointment. There are several options available, and we can help find one that may work for you.

If you need transportation help, please call 1.888.IUHEALTH (1.888.484.3258) and choose option 9 (8 am - 5 pm Monday - Friday; 8 am - noon Saturday).

Everyone receiving a vaccination at an IU Health clinic must have registered for an appointment. This is the primary way the clinics manage the number of vaccine doses available that day. The clinics also have a variety of other vaccine management practices to ensure there are no unused vaccines at the end of the day.

IU Health is working closely with state public health officials for COVID-19 vaccine distribution. We will provide the latest COVID-19 vaccine updates, answers and information for you and your family.

What to Expect

You’ll receive an email or text notification to provide additional details and complete your consent in advance. Complete this information before your appointment to avoid having to complete it in person at the clinic site.

What should I bring with me?

You should bring a photo ID card and your insurance card to your appointment.

How much will the vaccine cost?

The COVID-19 vaccine is available at no cost to you. You will not have to pay a fee or any other extra charge. We will collect insurance information to bill a small administration fee to your insurance company, but no cost will be charged to you.

Is there anything else I should know?

You may want to coordinate with your employer to stagger time away from work and ensure appropriate staffing. Potential side effects are mild and may be more apparent after the second dose.

When you arrive, tell the vaccine provider if you are ill or have ever had a severe allergic reaction.

By getting the vaccine you’ve made an important decision that will protect you and those around you. You may have a few questions like "What are the side effects?" "Why do I need a second dose?" "Do I still need to wear a mask?"

We answer all that and more for you here: What to Expect After COVID-19 Vaccine
