COVID-19 Vaccine Waitlist Update

**The Jefferson County Health Department will no longer be adding names to our waitlist.**

On Monday, January 25th the State will have a Statewide registration system for individuals 65 years of age and older wanting to be vaccinated. County waitlists will be uploaded into that system and will take priority over new registrants. The State has asked counties to stop adding names to their waitlists.

In order to register through the new State Vaccine Registration Web Site go to www.vaccinate.wv.gov or call the Vaccine Hotline Number at 833-734-0965. The hotline hours are Monday through Friday 8:00 am to 6:00 pm and Saturday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Vaccine Registration will not go live until 8:00 am Monday morning (1/25/21).
