West Virginians can now pre-register for the COVID-19 vaccine!
and pre-register in 3 simple steps:
1. Sign Up: Create Your Account
2. Complete Your Profile
3. Review and Finish
Step 1 will allow you to select your preferred communication contact (e.g., phone, text, email).
Once created, you can use your username and password to login to edit or delete your account at any time.
You will receive confirmation of your successful account setup and pre-registration within 24 hours. (If you do not, contact the COVID-19 Vaccine Info Line: 1-833-734-0965. The info line is open Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.)
Once you have pre-registered, you will have the opportunity to:
– Receive real-time updates on vaccine availability;
– Schedule an appointment to get vaccinated as supplies allow.
When a COVID-19 vaccine is available for you, you will be notified to schedule your appointment. That notification will arrive through your preferred communication channels (email/text/phone). It will include a date, time, and location with the opportunity to confirm or decline the appointment.
West Virginians who cannot go online can call the COVID-19 Vaccine Info Line: (833) 734-0965 for help with pre-registration.
** The call center is active from Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. **
– You do *NOT* need to pre-register if you have already been placed on a waitlist through your local health department or other medical providers.
– You do *NOT* need to pre-register if you have already received your first vaccine dose
– Anyone already on a waitlist or awaiting the 2nd dose will be integrated into this new system.
– The system will be open for pre-registration throughout its first week of operation.
– Moving forward, vaccination scheduling will also be available through the system.
– Scheduling will continue based on the state’s overlapping phased approach for administering the limited vaccine supply.
– At this time, West Virginians 65 years of age and older and certain high-risk priority groups who are pre-registered will receive a text, phone call, or email with an appointment once it is available to their group and in their geographical area.
– Those who are not in the current priority groups can still pre-register online and will be offered an appointment when eligible based on available supply.
The W.Va. Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) is launching this new service.
West Virginia is the first state to deploy this new system through Everbridge, a global provider of critical event management technologies.
