Online Scheduling Available

Vaccine appointments can be easily scheduled online. If you have an existing Premier Health MyChart account and are 40 years of age or older, you likely received an appointment scheduling request when you became eligible for the vaccine. You can use this request to schedule your vaccine appointment through MyChart.

If you do not have a Premier Health MyChart account or do not have an active appointment scheduling request in your MyChart account, you can still schedule online (when appointments are available).

Walk-ins Welcome

An appointment is requested but not required for COVID-19 vaccinations. Walk-ins are welcome at some locations and will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis, with priority given to those with appointments.
