VDH COVID-19 Update: Part-time Vermonters can sign up for shots April 29

Wed, 04/21/2021 - 4:55pm -- tim

Vermont Business Magazine The Vermont Department of Health is reporting today 73 new cases of COVID-19 and one more death for 243 statewide. Cases are trending down, especially among younger Vermonters. Regional cases are also declining. On April 29, vaccine registration will open to college students who are residents of another state and do not intend to stay in Vermont for the summer, as well as to people who live part of the year in Vermont. This opportunity will be based on the vaccine supply we receive from the federal government. Governor Scott believes that the CDC will resume distribution of the Johns & Johnson vaccine soon. An announcement on that could come as early as Friday evening.

Getting calls from the Health Department for a vaccine standby list

If you made an appointment through the state registration system that is three weeks or more away, you may get a call to ask if you are interested in being on the standby list.

The call may come from a Vermont number or may appear to come from another state. You will only need to answer “yes” or “no.” You will not be asked for your contact information or any other personal information since you are already in our system.

If you agree to be on the list, don’t cancel your existing appointment! It will be cancelled for you AFTER you receive the vaccination if you get called in as a standby. If you don’t get called in, keep your original appointment.

Please do not call the Health Department to be put on the standby list.
