Vaccine Distribution & Scheduling

If you are unable to schedule your COVID-19 vaccine through MyChart or our Call Center, it is due to all appointments being full. The state’s delivery of the vaccine has limited our ability to offer more appointments at this time. Please continue to check this site daily for the most up to date scheduling information.

Scheduling for the COVID-19 vaccination is currently open to:

Phase 1A

This population includes:

  • Healthcare workers (including students and volunteers) with direct or indirect contact to patients or infectious materials
  • All staff essential to the functioning of a healthcare system
  • Long-term care residents and staff

Phase 1B or those age 65 and older

At this time, we have a limited amount of the vaccine. Due to this, we are only scheduling:

  • Metro Health patients age 65 and older
  • Metro Health patients who are corrections staff
  • Metro Health patients who work in homeless shelters, congregate childcare institutions and adult and child protective services
  • First responders assigned by the county to receive their vaccine through Metro Health
  • Pre-K through high school staff assigned by the county to receive their vaccine through Metro Health

Metro Health is following state public health guidelines for distribution and Kent County guidelines for distribution and will keep you informed as more groups become eligible.

Appointments are required.
