I have checked with my pulmonologist’s office at Mayo, Rochester. I am a patient for specialists but am from a “different region” as they call it and will need to receive my vaccine in my “home region.” Thus, I need to contact my PCP in my local, small community and wait for my turn for the vaccine, unless Mayo changes course, and allows me to get a vaccine there. I received this news in mid-December. Good luck and sat safe❤️

@migizii– The purpose of your PCP is to be the one medical person who oversees your major health care. If you need more specialized care then he will refer you to a specialist. Most, if not all of your vaccines or boosters are given in your PCP's office. They will treat you for the flu or COVID-19 and refer you to be tested. If you have had aches and pains and have your doctor believes that you might have arthritis he might refer you to a specialist. They used to be called family doctors.

Have you called your PCP to find out when you might be vaccinated in your state?
