Do you know who to contact?  Do you know where you are in line for eligibility?  Who has the right information?  Does my doctor know?  Why or why not?  Where will I get it?  When?  There are so many questions.  Here is some quick info you might be looking for.    Where to Get Tested While the vaccine is rolling out, be sure to get tested before any travel and upon your return.
