We are currently in the process of executing vaccinations in Phase 1A and scheduling Phase 1B, for our local COVID-19 vaccination program. The exact dates for upcoming phases are yet to be determined, as they are based on variables such as vaccine availability, shipment capacity, etc. We will make additional information available as soon as we are able.
I am a healthcare worker at Munson, how come I can't register at the Health Department?
Munson Healthcare, associates, organizations and affiliates will be receiving the vaccine through Munson.
Why isn't my Mom's long term care facility getting vaccinated?
Some long term care facilities are being coordinated at the federal level and will receive their vaccines through Walgreens, CVS, or other contracted pharmacies.
I am in group 1A and I haven't been contacted yet. How do I get scheduled?
GTCHD's scheduling system will be available shortly. Different links will be used for different phases of the process.
Why can't I schedule my vaccine appointment? I am in 1B.
The form for 1B will be available shortly.
Why do we have to wait until 1A & 1B are complete before we have our vaccine?
Some of the dates for various phases may overlap depending on vaccine availability.
When will vaccine be available to me?
If you are Phase 1B (over 65 or essential worker), slots will be released in the upcoming weeks.
Please continue to monitor the health department website.
I was told that I could schedule an appointment but the website shows no appointments available.
Clinics may fill up fast, but change frequently due to new slots opening, cancellations, etc. Please check back regularly.
What if I need to cancel my appointment?
Please click the cancellation link at the bottom of the confirmation email that you received.
I did not receive a confirmation email, what do I do?
If you are a Charter customer, there is a known issue.
Please keep an eye out for the on-screen "confirmation" when you submitted your booking. Be assured your appointment is set.
I can't make it to my second does appointment, can you reschedule me?
At this time, we are unable to reschedule your second dose. You must be sure to attend both appointments. Do not book a first dose appointment if you know you cannot make it to the second appointment.
Can I get my first dose elsewhere or vice versa?
No, you must get both doses from the same source. No exceptions are being made.
Can I get my flu shot at the same time?
No, you cannot receive any other vaccination two weeks prior to first dose through two weeks (14 day) after your second dose of COVID vaccine.
I am positive for COVID, awaiting test results; can I still be vaccinated?
No, you must wait until your quarantine/isolation is completed.
What are the underlying medical conditions that will qualify me for the vaccine under Phase 1C?
