What You Should Do to Obtain a Vaccine
If you meet the criteria to be eligible, here is the current state recommendation.
Check with local providers. (see list of local providers with links below or visit here for a full state map) These include pharmacies, health systems and VA health systems.
Make an appointment directly with the provider for a vaccine. In most cases, you will need to set up an account with the provider to make an appointment. You should check in regularly, several times per day, with your selected providers. Appointments open and are filled on a first come, first served basis.
Local Vaccine Providers
There is not one universal registration for COVID 19 vaccines. The providers listed below each have a unique registration processes for eligible individuals to sign up for an appointment when vaccines become available. Visit their website(s) to find out how to register with them.
Important: If you are considering traveling out of state for a vaccine be sure to check the state’s regulations. For example, Delaware will only give vaccines to residents and people who work or go to school in Delaware. Identification is required and people with appointments have been turned away because they do not meet the Delaware state regulations.
