Pittsburgh-Allegheny County Health Department’s new vaccine registration system is now open to the public.
Those seeking vaccine appointments can click here to register online.
When visiting the website, you have four options:
- Schedule the first dose
- Schedule a second dose
- cancel appointment
If you choose “Plan First Dose”, you will answer four questions, three of which are used to assess whether you are eligible for vaccination before completing the health screening questions. If you are eligible, the next step will be to arrange one.
People scheduling the second dose will need a code. The Ministry of Health said that this caused confusion on Thursday due to the e-mail issue, but it is expected to be resolved on Friday.
The email sent on Thursday to the person trying to schedule a second medication did not contain the necessary code. Then a new, corrected email was sent, but some people received a message informing that the clinic was full or there were no new appointments. As a result, the health department decided to stop sending emails until a certain time on Friday after conducting overnight tests and repairs.
The Ministry of Health stated that the appointment and pre-registration of the first dose will not be affected.
If you are not eligible for vaccination, or no appointment is available, we will invite you to pre-register. Then, when you can get the vaccine and schedule an appointment, you will be notified via email or text message. If you have pre-registered, you can prioritize appointments, 48 hours before the remaining appointments are open to the public.
Anyone who does not have an email can call 211 for help to schedule 9 am to noon every day. If you are not eligible or there is no appointment available, you can also pre-register by phone.
