Please understand current vaccine demand far exceeds current vaccine supply. Once you have registered, you will be contacted by phone or email to schedule your appointment. It may be at least 4-5 weeks before you are scheduled. We encourage you to check with your primary care physician and/or your pharmacist to see if they can vaccinate you more quickly.Surveys: HPHD surveys are NOT scheduling you for a vaccine. These surveys are the first step in getting a vaccine. These surveys are to capture your information and HPHD will contact you when it’s time to schedule an appointment to get vaccinated, by sending an email with an appointment link. Due to this, an email is required for registration and scheduling. These surveys will send you a confirmation email once complete. Please check your spam folder if you do not see it in your inbox. THIS IS THE ONLY CONFIRMATION YOU WILL RECEIVE.2nd Dose Appointments: Individuals who received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine at PHD from 1/4-1/11 will return exactly 28 days from their 1st dose, at their same appointment time. Individuals who received their first dose vaccine 1/13-present will receive an email with a link to schedule their second dose. The link will be for exactly 28 days from your 1st dose, but you will schedule the appointment time. For anyone who needs to reschedule their 2nd dose appointments, you will be placed on a waitlist.
