Did you hear? The Vermont Department of Health provided a recent update expanding eligibility for vaccines to people ages 16+ with certain high-risk health conditions… and moving the date of eligibility to this Thursday, 3/11/21! COVID-19 vaccines are FREE and a doctor’s note or proof of a health condition is NOT required to sign up.
UPDATE FROM Vermont Department of Health: “We were scheduled to open up 16 and above with high-risk conditions next week, but given our supply of vaccine and ability to accommodate large numbers of appointments, we have decided to accelerate this time schedule to this Thursday. Beginning at 8:15 am this Thursday, March 11, those 16 and above with high-risk conditions can make an appointment to be vaccinated by going to the state website healthvermont.gov/MyVaccine or by calling the vaccine call center at 855-722-7878.”
Wondering if you qualify as being someone with a high risk health condition? Conditions include: Current cancer, chronic kidney disease, COPD, heart disease, weakened immune system, severe obesity, pregnancy, diabetes, certain disabilities, and sickle cell disease.
For a detailed list of conditions and to make an appointment, go to HealthVermont.gov/MyVaccine
