Schedule Your COVID-19 Vaccination Appointment in VAMS


What is VAMS?

The Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS) is an appointment scheduling system provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC). VAMS is used by various healthcare providers to assist residents with scheduling their COVID-19 vaccine appointments.

Creating an account and registering in VAMS requires creating an account for yourself with a unique email that is not shared with anyone else.
