(January 29, 2021) – You can now create your account to pre-register for a COVID-19 vaccine online in the Mountain State.
This week, West Virginia became the first state in the nation to launch an innovative event management tool to help organize its vaccine rollout, according to the State Department of Health and Human Resources. Neighbors report the process is easy.

Receive a text, phone call, or email with an appointment once it is available to your group and in your geographical area
The first step allows you to select your preferred communication contact (e.g., phone, text, email). You can also get instructions at the registration to download an app to your Apple or Android device to get notifications via your phone.
Once your pre-registration account is created, you can use your username and password to login to edit or delete your account at any time.
At this time, West Virginians 65 years of age and older and certain high-risk priority groups who are pre-registered are getting appointment notifications. Once the vaccine is available to your group and in your geographical area, you will receive a text, phone call, or email with an appointment.
