County Updates Online Vaccine Registration System

From San Juan County
As San Juan County Health & Community Services continues to provide vaccines to the islands (many other local providers are also now delivering vaccines!) the registration process has been frustrating for many.
While those who can secure an appointment have had a smooth experience, those who have not are left wishing there was a better way.
The good news is that the county is switching to a new system. That said, some existing challenges will remain. Overall, it is an improvement.
The new registration tool is called PrepMod and is managed by Washington Department of Health.
The tool is being used by jurisdictions across the country including Los Angeles County, the states of Massachusetts, Alaska, and many more. DOH has recently given approval for it to be used by San Juan County.
As before, reservations will be released at a set time. The next release time will be at 5 p.m., Friday, Feb. 5.
The registration link is https://prepmod.doh.wa.gov/clinic/search, and the link is also included in Step 2 on the COVID Vaccine Page. Please note, it will not be possible to find or book appointments in San Juan County until the set time that reservations open.
