    The number of people who can ride an elevator at the same time will be restricted to a designated number by the site manager.

    Once on the 10th floor, another group of friendly volunteers will show you where to wait for your vaccination.

    After your injection, you will wait for 15 minutes before being shown back to the lobby and out of the building. Volunteers will be available to help locate Ride Shares if required.
