COVID-19 VACCINES >> Due to high traffic volume at websites and phone lines, eligible residents in Phase 1B may encounter delays scheduling appointments to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Please try back later. Appointment availability is limited but we will continue to open up slots as they become available.

COVID-19 Vaccine Access for those 75 and Older



If you are 75 years of age or older,  you qualify for Phase 1b, and are currently eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. If you have already heard from your medical provider about receiving the vaccine, you do not need to do anything else – if you have not, several scheduling options are available to you.

Please, do not reach out to your doctor or medical provider about the vaccine if they have not contacted you.

While appointments may not be available immediately at this time, please know that the State continues to be limited by the amount of vaccine provided by the federal government. The Department of Public Health is continuing to enroll providers and staff, and we expect that access to appointments will grow, particularly for priority populations, as our supply from the federal government increases in the coming weeks.
