 VACCINE NEWS: Updated 2/25/21

We are sure most of you have seen the disparity in the percent of residents vaccinated in Jefferson County as compared to the rest of the state. The State plans to close the gap in the 28 counties that are below the state average for vaccinations. They will be increasing the allocation of vaccine to Jefferson County for the next couple of weeks. 

This week, we received 450 doses of vaccine and we are holding a clinic at the Ranson Civic Center on Thursday 2/25/21 for individuals 65 and older on our waitlist. Next week we will be receiving 1,490 prime (first) doses of vaccine for individuals ages 65 and older. We are in the process of planning clinics for next week. We will also be giving 300 booster (2nd) doses next week. 

All of our vaccination clinics are by appointment only and we use our waitlist to schedule appointments. With this increased allocation and many people on our waitlist having had the opportunity to get vaccinated elsewhere (Walgreens, the VA Medical Center, and regional vaccination clinics held several weeks ago), we anticipate finishing with our waitlist by next week or the following week. We will then move to using Everbridge for scheduling appointments. 

COVID-19 VACCINE REGISTRATION FAQs

Does the Jefferson County Health Department have a vaccine waitlist?

No, as of January 22, 2021 the Jefferson County Health Department is no longer adding names to our waitlist. Individuals who want to be added to the waitlist must register with the Statewide System.

How can I register with the Everbridge Statewide System?

Visit the WV DHHR website and follow their instructions to register. If you are not able to register online, you may call to register at 833-734-0965.

Does registering with the Statewide System mean that I have an appointment scheduled for the vaccine?

No, the Statewide System adds you to a waitlist for the vaccine and does not mean that you have an appointment for a vaccine. You will be notified when there is a vaccine available for you.

If my name was on the Health Department’s previous waitlist, do I need to register with the Statewide System?

No, you do not need to register again. All names that were originally added to the Jefferson County Health Department’s vaccine waitlist will be transferred to the Statewide System. Only individuals who where 65 and older were added to our waitlist prior to January 22, 2021 when we stopped accepting names for our waitlist. If you tried to register for the Health Department’s previous waitlist and you were younger than 65, you will need to pre-register on the Statewide System on the WV DHHR website.

How do I pre-register for a vaccine if I am younger than 65 years old?

To pre-register for a vaccine, visit the WV DHHR website. If you are unable to pre-register online, you can call 833-734-0965 to register. Pre-registration is open to individuals 16 years and older. Currently, only individuals who are 65 and older may receive the vaccine.
