DHD No. 10 provides COVID-19 vaccine waitlist registration

LAKE COUNTY — District Health Department No.10 has announced that seniors aged 65 and older can get on a waiting list for the COVID-19 vaccine.

There is a Waitlist Registration posted on the website at dhd10.org to get seniors on the waitlist for the vaccine. The link will open to a scheduling assistant. You must select a date and time to proceed to the next step.

This will not schedule an appointment, but will place you on the waiting list. Those who complete the Waitlist Registration will receive an email with an appointment date, time, and location as soon as the vaccine is available.

Seniors who do not have access to technology, may call the hotline number at 231-715-5557 to be put on the waitlist. Once on the waitlist, you will be contacted when the vaccine is available and be scheduled to receive it.

Please only complete the online waitlist registration or call to register, not both. This could cause duplication and result in being deleted. If you have access to technology, please use the online registration. The hotline is reserved for those who do not have access to the internet.

“DHD No.10 has partnered with the Area Agency on Aging, senior centers across our jurisdiction, and other community partners to assist us with getting our seniors on the waiting list for the vaccine when it is available,” stated Kevin Hughes, Health Officer for DHD No.10. “We ask that only those who are 65 and older complete the waitlist registration provided or call the hotline at this time.”

DHD No.10 continues to prioritize health care workers in Phase 1A and some in Phase 1B including seniors 65 and older, first responders, and jail/corrections staff. They are also working with schools directly to plan for their vaccination clinics.

DHD No.10 asks for patience during this period of uncertainty. Please refrain from calling the health department to ask about scheduling the vaccine. Sign up for our Public Health Alert at dhd10.org/subscribe to stay informed.
