St. J Rotary Offers Vaccine Registration Assistance

ST. JOHNSBURY - With more Vermonters eligible for the vaccine, some have found that the registration process is not as easy as it may seem. The St. Johnsbury Rotary Club saw this need in the community and has put together a group of volunteers to help.

To be vaccinated, Vermonters must create an account at HealthVermont.gov and make an appointment with one of four organizations: the Vermont Department of Health, CVS, Walgreens, or Kinney Drugs. Each organization has its own registration system. 45 towns in the state currently host some form of vaccination site, including Lyndon, St. Johnsbury, Concord, Newbury, and Bradford.

"The Rotary Club is here to support the community and help with whatever the needs are, and there's such a need right now that we see with people who need to get the vaccine shots," Service Chair Coordinator Jay Miller said. He described the appointment scheduling process as a system "a lot of people had trouble with."

Anyone who needs assistance registering for their COVID-19 vaccine may contact the Rotary through their Facebook page.  

Vermonters over the age of 16 will be eligible for the vaccine on April 19. Vermont also plans to vaccinate out-of-state college students starting on April 30.
