Valley Health has launched online registration for COVID-19 vaccines through PrepMod, the statewide registration platform
People 75 and older as well as essential workers prioritized in Virginia’s 1b group can sign up for an appointment time using the link tinyurl.com/y2aols3c.
Though the site was launched a day later than expected, Jason Craig, director of urgent care for Valley Health’s central region and operational lead for Valley Health’s vaccination distribution process, called the launch a success.
“We appreciated everyone’s patience,” he said on Tuesday. “It was a great win for the community to be able to get that link out.”
Once logged into the system, visitors can check their eligibility to receive the vaccine and choose a time that’s convenient for them.
“The system is set up so it helps us manage inventory as well,” Craig said.
“We are going to do it as many days as we can with the amount of inventory that we have.”
