As of April 12, nearly 75 million people in the United States have been fully vaccinated, which accounts for almost 23% of the country’s population, while 40% have also received at least one dose.
Registering to get an appointment to be vaccinated, however, can be a little overwhelming. There are numerous factors that go into the decision, including what shot to get and where to go. As of right now, the two popular options of vaccines are both mRNA, the Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech.
It is important to remember a few things when registering for a COVID-19 vaccination. The vaccine, itself, is free, so make sure you have a valid driver’s license or ID card and health insurance handy. You should also understand that you are not only protecting yourself by getting vaccinated, but those you care about, as well as the general population. Lastly, be patient during the process. Receiving a vaccine may not be timely, but you will absolutely get it sooner, rather than later. That said, see below for a few ways to get started in liberating yourself from the pandemic and getting back to normalcy!
Ways to Make an Appointment to Receive a COVID-19 Vaccination
- A great tool to get started is Vaccine Finder, which offers help on finding clinics and pharmacies in your area allowing for vaccination appointments, as well as availability and requirements.
