Provider enrollment for COVID-19 vaccine is open.
Complete the provider inquiry form. You can use the COVID-19 Provider Enrollment Guide (PDF) to help you through the enrollment process.
We don’t know when the Food and Drug Administration will authorize vaccines. Along with DOH, we’re watching vaccine development efforts closely. We will only promote a safe and effective vaccine.
Once a safe and effective vaccine is available, we anticipate limited supplies at first. We expect more vaccine will become available over time. DOH is developing vaccine distribution plans. People at high risk of getting COVID-19 will likely get the vaccine first:
- People who work in healthcare or first responders who treat patients with COVID-19.
- Older adults who live in congregate care settings.
