Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to be a City resident to get a vaccine at this location?

No, we are able to vaccinate anyone who lives or works in Philadelphia.  You may demonstrate residency with your Photo ID, or if you’ve recently moved, you may bring a recent bill, such as utility, credit card or cable.  We will be checking eligibility before entry into the vaccine center, and appreciate your understanding if we are unable to help you.

What vaccine is available at the vybe vaccine center?

This location is offering the Moderna vaccine, which requires 2 shots roughly 28 days apart.  At the time of your first visit, we will schedule your second appointment.  Moderna has approved use of this vaccine for patients age 18 and over.

I can’t find an appointment online – may I book by phone?

Please continue to check the website. New appointments become available each day, and we immediately return any cancelled appointments to the website.

We prefer you schedule your appointment online to immediately reserve the most convenient time. This will also allow you to receive registration materials online to complete before your visit.

Who will be administering the vaccine?

vybe urgent care immunizers may include physicians, medical assistants and other trained vaccine technicians. All immunizers must meet vybe’s standards and are fully trained in vaccine administration and the detection of adverse effects.

How long will the vaccination take?

Before the vaccine

We will do our best to see patients promptly. There are ways you can help us and your fellow patients:

  • Complete your registration online before you visit. We’ll send both a text and an email with a link to register.
  • Please plan to arrive close to your arrival time, but not more than 10 minutes early. There is very little waiting room inside, so anyone who arrives early may need to wait outside.

After the vaccine

There is a mandatory minimum 15 minute observation period after receiving the vaccine. This is for your safety and to ensure you don’t experience any immediate adverse effects. This observation period may be extended based on individual patient reaction to the vaccine.

How can I find my appointment information?

We will send you reminders 48 hours and 24 hours in advance of your appointment. Your appointment confirmation email contains the most detailed background about your visit. Please look in your spam or junk folder if you can’t find this email.

What do I need to bring?

Please bring the following when you visit the vaccine center:

  • Your ID
  • Your insurance card or red/white/blue Medicare card
  • A mask to wear at all times

We can’t allow outside food and drink in the facility.

What should I do if I’m feeling sick on the day of my appointment?

You do not need to postpone vaccination if you are experiencing a mild illness without fever. However, if you have a fever, you will likely not be able to receive a vaccination on your scheduled day. We’ll be happy to give you priority for re-scheduling. Please call our Patient Solutions team at 215-999-3715 or email us at vaccinecenter@vybe.care.
