Please read the following before requesting an appointment to receive the COVID-19 Vaccine.
Washington Health System (WHS) is currently administering vaccines to those that fall in the Phase 1A category that also live in Washington or Greene County or are a patient of a WHS practice. This includes individuals that are 65 and older and those that are 16-64 with one of the preexisting conditions below.
High-risk conditions that qualify for a vaccine under Phase 1A:
- Chronic kidney disease
- Down Syndrome
- Heart conditions, such as heart failure, coronary artery disease, or cardiomyopathies
- Immunocompromised state (weakened immune system) from solid organ transplant or from blood or bone marrow transplant, immune deficiencies, HIV, use of corticosteroids, or use of other immune weakening medicines
- Obesity (body mass index [BMI] of 30 kg/m2 or higher but < 40 kg/m2)
- Severe Obesity (BMI ≥ 40 kg/m2)
- Sickle cell disease
To request an appointment to receive the vaccine, please complete the form linked below. Please do not fill in this form if you do not qualify under the 1A category. We will not keep a list of those that fall within other categories.
By submitting this form you attest that you qualify for the vaccine within Phase 1A and are agreeing to show up to your scheduled appointment.
Please remember to be patient through this process. WHS received over 15,000 vaccinations requests within the first 48 hours. We have a team reviewing all requests to confirm eligibility, and therefore it could take up to several days to receive an initial confirmation reply. Please do not submit a duplicate registration or call the hospital with questions pertaining to vaccination registration as this only slows the process.
If several days have passed and you are still waiting for an e-mail confirming the receipt of your registration please try searching your junk/spam e-mail folder for an e-mail from whs.
