Little announces new online tool to help Idahoans access vaccine

| January 30, 2021 1:00 AM

Gov. Brad Little announced Friday the State of Idaho launched a new COVID-19 vaccination information webpage to help Idahoans more easily find information on when and where to get vaccinated and what to expect when they get to their appointment.

The new web page is healthandwelfare.idaho.gov/covid-19-vaccination.

“The rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine in Idaho is my No. 1 priority, and we are doing everything we can to get people vaccinated as safely, quickly, fairly, and transparently as possible,” Little said.

Local public health districts are responsible for implementing vaccination plans, and enrolled COVID-19 vaccine provider information is on each public health district website, but the new resource offers just one place where all Idahoans can find out when they are eligible to receive the vaccine and where to access enrolled COVID-19 vaccine providers in their area.

The page also tells Idahoans which priority groups, by occupation and age, are next in line for the vaccine.

The new web page can also be accessed at

coronavirus.idaho.gov/covid-19-vaccine/, which will continue to be a source of information about the COVID-19 vaccine as well.
