MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) – Registration for the COVID-19 vaccine is now open for Vermonters 75 and older.
You can register for the vaccine at this link. Starting at noon on Monday, you can also call 855-722-7878 to make an appointment. Going forward, the call center will be open Monday-Friday, 8:15 a.m.-5:30 p.m., and Saturday-Sunday, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
When you make an appointment, you’ll be asked for your name, date of birth, a few medical questions like whether you’ve recently had another vaccine, and your insurance information, although insurance is not required.
The first appointments will begin this Wednesday.
A receptionist will check you in, someone will give you a shot, then you hang out for 15 minutes of observation, and then you can leave. It’s important to make it to your appointment because if you don’t, your dose may spoil.
An appointment to get the second dose of the vaccine will be made after you get your first shot.
Relatives and friends of older Vermonters who are eligible for a vaccine are urged to offer to help register them online.
The state plans to have 54 vaccine sites in 39 towns across Vermont. Officials urge people to register for an appointment at a site close to their homes.
