The Department of Health and Community Services has released its COVID-19 vaccination plan. (Link below)
Starting today, pre-registration is available for people 70 years of age and older. People who have access to the Internet can pre-register online here. People who are unable to pre-register online can call 1-833-668-3930 or 709-273-3930 from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. seven days a week.
The purpose of pre-registration is to let people identify how they wish to be contacted by their regional health authority once a vaccine appointment is available. The order in which people pre-register will not determine the order of vaccine appointments.
To ensure a smooth pre-registration process, people 70 years of age and older are asked to register based on their last name:
From Friday, February 26, 2021 to Sunday, February 28, 2021, people 70 years of age and older with last names starting with A to F can pre-register.
From Monday, March 1, 2021 to Wednesday March 3, 2021, people 70 years of age and older with last names starting with G to L can pre-register.
From Thursday, March 4, 2021 to Saturday, March 6, 2021, people 70 years of age and older with last names starting with M to Z can pre-register.
As of Sunday, March 7, 2021, people 70 years of age and older who were unable to pre-register during the dates listed above can do so.
