I’m ready. How do I get an appointment?
1. Sign up for emails from your local public-health agency and follow it on social media.
These agencies sometimes announce online when new appointments open up or extra vaccines are available.
2. Sign up for electronic patient portals (such as Mychart, Healow, or athenacommunicator) at any hospitals where you’ve received care.
Most hospitals deliver vaccine rollout news through the patient portal and allow patients to sign up. You’ll get the information a lot faster this way rather than waiting to call to set up an appointment. You can also google “vaccine bot” and your state or city to find a Twitter handle that will give you up-to-date info.
