COVID-19 VACCINATION PRE-REGISTRATION
Currently, all West Virginians are encouraged to pre-register through the DHHR pre-registration system. Vaccine supplies are limited, so pre-registration does not mean immediate access to vaccination. Pre-registration offers West Virginians the opportunity to receive real-time updates on vaccine availability and facilitate appointment scheduling when available for you as supplies allow.
Vaccination scheduling will begin through the DHHR pre-registration system as we distribute our limited supply of COVID-19 vaccines. The overlapping approach is based on the state’s driving principles to build community immunity in West Virginia by protecting our most vulnerable, reducing deaths, reducing hospitalizations, and maintaining our critical services such as acute care.
Please note that the question “Have you met the pre-vaccine requirements” may be left blank on the registration form.
Please click the sign-up button below to input your information for pre-registration.*
PLEASE DO NOT USE THE ONLINE REGISTRATION SYSTEM IF:
You have already received your first dose of COVID-19 vaccine. You will receive information about your second dose from the healthcare entity that administered the first dose and/or the Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS).
You have already been placed on a waitlist through your local health department or other healthcare provider. You will be integrated into this new system and do not need to register again.West Virginians who need assistance with registration for any reason should call our COVID-19 Vaccine Info Line for help at 1-833-734-0965. The call center is open Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.–
