Day of Vaccination: 
·       Please arrive at or just before the time of your appointment. Arriving earlier will only cause you and others to have to wait longer.  
·       Only individuals with appointments will be vaccinated, but multiple people with appointments may arrive in the same vehicle. 
·       Please enter Dover International Speedway at 1000 Leipsic Road, Dover.   
·       Do not use the main entrance to the Speedway and Dover Downs Hotel and Casino from Route 13. Please bring photo identification and please print and fill out the vaccination information form and pre-vaccination screening found at https://coronavirus.delaware.gov/wp-content/uploads/sites/177/2021/02/20210211_ir_form.pdf.  
·       You should fill the fields marked in yellow, and the pre-vaccination screening questions are about your health on the day of your vaccination. If you cannot print and fill out the form in advance, copies will be available on site. 
·       This is a drive-through event. You will remain in your vehicle to be vaccinated. Please arrive dressed in a way that you can expose your upper arm easily, and don’t have to get out of your vehicle to remove a jacket or shirt. 
·       In case wait times become lengthy, please plan ahead. You should consider what snacks or medications you may need to bring, though we hope the wait will not be long. Additionally, access to restroom facilities is limited.
