West Virginia: COVID Vaccination Pre-Registration System

West Virginia First State to Launch Everbridge COVID-19 Vaccination Pre-Registration System

CHARLESTON, WV (STL.News) West Virginians will now have access to a COVID-19 vaccination pre-registration tool available statewide. West Virginia is the first state to deploy this new system through Everbridge, a global provider of critical event management technologies. The tool enables West Virginians to pre-register for COVID-19 vaccination and receive updates through text, phone and/or email. The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) will launch the new service at 8 a.m., Monday, January 25, 2021 on vaccinate.wv.gov.

Those who have already been placed on a waitlist through their local health department or other medical provider, as well as those who have already received their first vaccine dose, will be integrated into this new system and thus do not need to pre-register. The first week, the system will open for pre-registration. Moving forward, vaccination scheduling will also be available through the system. Scheduling will continue based on the state’s overlapping phased approach for administering the limited vaccine supply.

“Gov. Justice tasked DHHR with figuring out a vaccination registration and scheduling tool for West Virginians to use,” said Bill J. Crouch, DHHR Cabinet Secretary.
