Nebraska Governor Ricketts Launch Vaccine Registration Website

LINCOLN, NE (STL.News) Today, Governor Pete Ricketts announced that the State has launched an online portal where Nebraskans can register for coronavirus vaccinations (vaccinate.nebraska.gov).

While Nebraskans are encouraged to register in a timely manner, the State is not administering vaccines on a first come, first serve basis. Nebraska’s vaccination plan (dhhs.ne.gov/Documents/COVID-19-Vaccination-Plan.pdf) is proceeding in phases, with priority groups receiving initial doses.

Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Incident Commander Angie Ling provided an update on the allocations of Pfizer and Moderna vaccines coming to Nebraska.  She also reported on the progress of vaccinations administered thus far.  DHHS CIO Lori Snyder also joined the Governor to overview the process to register to receive the coronavirus vaccine.

Gov. Ricketts: Vaccination

  • Vaccinations have been moving quickly statewide despite the recent snowstorms.
  • Over 161,000 vaccinations have now been administered.
  • Seventeen (17) of our 19 local health departments have already completed Phase 1A and moved into Phase 1B.  Douglas County and Lancaster-Lancaster public health departments should complete Phase 1A in the coming days.

Angie Ling: Vaccination

  • Next week, Nebraska will receive 11,700 primary doses of the Pfizer vaccine and 15,500 primary doses of Moderna’s vaccine.
