Frequently Asked Questions
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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 email@example.com.
