You can also see where the mobile clinic is going to be this week by clicking the button.  


We had hoped to have the link to make a COVID19 Vaccine Appointment at noon, today ( 1/22/2021).   Unfortuantely, the State is late in releasing the updated site to us and it is out of our control and we are still waiting for a response.   We apologize for the frustration and the delays.  Also, due to the crash of the website yesterday, it seems updates on our website keep disappearing. 
When the site is available, there will be information on the Home Page with a large Link for Registration. 
Information on how to register:  The first opening when the site is available is for February 11th, 2021. (We are already booked with prior appointments, some of our 2nd dose appointments and education sectors for next week and the following week). 
If you received your vaccine on January 5th, 6th, or 7th from VCHD, your appointments are STILL currently scheduled for February 2nd, 3rd, and 4th.  THESE DID NOT CHANGE AND YOU DO NOT NEED TO REGISTER or RE-REGISTER.
If you received a vaccine from VCHD on January 12th or January 14th, February 11th will be the date for your 2nd dose. There will be an option to choose 1st dose or 2nd dose. Please make sure that you choose the proper dose. If you received your first dose from a different location, you will need to get your 2nd dose from that same location.
NOTE: If you choose the 2nd dose and it is supposed to be your 1st dose, you will risk losing your appointment time as these are RESERVED for our 2nd dose clients from January 12 or 14th.
Please be patient as these times slots will fill up quickly. Each week, we will have another clinic that the public can sign up for. Unfortunately, we cannot open up all our clinic dates at the same time due to the limited amount of vaccine we receive each week.
We will NOT be taking appointments or taking names for a waiting list by phone at this time. If you do not have access to the internet, another option is to call someone that you trust to help you sign up online. This could be a trusted relative, neighbor, or friend.
Please do not call us for an appointment and please do not come to the health department to make an appointment. Please be patient as Phase 1b includes about 32,000 people in our area. This is going to take a long time to vaccinate our community. We are currently working with our hospitals and other partners to spread out the opportunities for the community to get vaccinated.
