HCDPH Launches Vaccine Waitlist
The Henderson County Department of Public Health (HCDPH) has launched a COVID-19 vaccine waitlist for adults 65 and older and all health care workers.
UPDATED 3/31/21: The Health Department has reached the end of its COVID-19 vaccine waitlist and has officially shut down the waitlist form.
This waitlist will be the new method used to make appointments for the Health Department’s vaccination clinics.Vaccine supply remains very limited, and the HCDPH waitlist will only accept those in Group 1 (health care workers, long-term care staff/residents) and Group 2 (adults 65 and older) at this time.
The amount of vaccines received each week varies greatly and appointments will be made as more vaccines become available. The waitlist will be organized on a first come, first served basis. The first to sign up will be the first called. Those who enter their email address will receive a confirmation with their number in line.
Calls will come from “COVID CC” with the phone number 828-585-4700. The Call Center will make two attempts to call individuals when it’s their turn. If a person cannot be reached, staff will continue working through the waitlist to make appointments. Those who were unable to be reached will be called the next time appointments are available.
Demand is incredibly high while supplies are low. Those on the waitlist may not be contacted immediately. The Health Department asks individuals not to sign up for the waitlist more than once or call for a status update. Everyone on the waitlist will be contacted by the Call Center when it’s their turn.
The waitlist is for first dose vaccinations only. Everyone who wants a vaccine will need to register separately. Those who already received their first dose do not need to call or go through the waitlist to schedule their second dose appointment.
Stay tuned to the HCDPH vaccination webpage for current reporting on the status of the vaccine efforts in Henderson County.
