Statewide WV online pre-registration for COVID-19 vaccine is up and running

i got my vaccine stickers

The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources has created an online registration system for state residents to sign up to get notified of when they can get vaccinated. The system went online Monday 1/25/21.

You don't have to be any certain age or in a priority category to voluntarily pre-register on the site. You have to create an account in the system by providing information like your birthdate and home address. You will have to provide a way to be contacted, such as email or phone or text, for when an appointment becomes available for you to get vaccinated. You have to  create a username and password that you'll need to be able to retrieve later to log in for updates and information. 

The system will still apply the state's vaccine plan priorities, so older people should expect to be ahead of younger people as appointments for vaccination become available in your geographic area.

Learn more about the system here https://dhhr.wv.gov/COVID-19/Pages/Vaccine.aspx and click the Sign Up Here gray button at the bottom of the page to create your account.

Senior West Virginians age 60 and over who have concerns or questions about this can call WV Senior Legal Aid at 1.800.229.5068 for help.
