Once an individual calls their designated county number and provides their contact information and date of birth, they are placed in a queue for call backs. An individual will not directly speak with an operator until they receive a call back. Once the individual receives a call back, they will work with the operator to find an open appointment that works best with their schedule. Every eligible individual will receive a call back when appointments become available.
Individuals who received their first dose at a state-supported vaccination site will receive a call directly to schedule their second dose appointment.

If you do not receive your appointment from the state for your second shot by day 28, call the state vaccination line at 866-201-7110 or you may email email@example.com with your name, date of birth and the location where you received your first shot.
We ask that individuals receive their second dose at the same location – especially if it is at a state-supported site. Not only does this ensure they receive the correct vaccine, but it assists the state in planning for allocations, staffing needs, appointments, etc.
Per guidance issued by the CDC, the second dose should be administered as close to the recommended interval as possible. However, if it is not feasible to adhere to the recommended interval, the second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines may be scheduled for administration up to 6 weeks (42 days) after the first dose.
It is critical that individuals bring their CDC vaccine card to their second appointment. However, if you have lost this card, individuals on site can access your information. It is important to note, this will delay the process of receiving your second dose and may increase wait time at the site.
Appointments for a vaccine must be made by calling the designated number for your county.
