Enrolled Vaccine Providers Encourage those 65 and Older to Schedule Vaccine Appointment
North Idaho – Enrolled COVID-19 vaccine providers are encouraging those 65 and older to schedule their vaccine appointment. According to the Idaho Department of Health & Welfare (IDHW) there are approximately 51,000 individuals in the Panhandle Health District (PHD) who are age 65 and over and 47% have received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
“We and other enrolled providers have seen a considerable slowdown of appointments being scheduled by the currently eligible groups,” said Don Duffy, PHD clinical services administrator. “This indicates to us that we need to move forward to the next phase of eligible groups. We want to ensure to the best of our abilities we have offered the vaccine to as many eligible individuals as possible, so we are encouraging those 65 and older to schedule their vaccine with an enrolled provider.”
Effective immediately, appointments available for scheduling at PHD vaccine clinics will be available to all of phase 1 and 2 groups.

Idaho launches COVID-19 vaccine appointment pre-registration system
Boise, Idaho – Under Governor Brad Little’s direction, the State of Idaho created a new COVID-19 vaccine appointment pre-registration solution to help alleviate the frustration of many Idahoans in trying to make an appointment to get the vaccine.
The new COVID-19 vaccine appointment pre-registration system is available at https://covidvaccine.idaho.gov/.
“The ability for Idahoans to get a vaccine – should they choose to do so – is my top priority,” Governor Little said. “The new pre-registration system is designed to take the frustration out of getting a COVID-19 vaccination appointment. It is user-friendly, easy to understand, and it was built from the ground up with Idahoans in mind.”
The pre-registration system allows Idahoans to add their names to one waiting list regardless of when they are eligible to get the vaccine. They will be contacted by an enrolled COVID-19 vaccine provider when it is their turn and when the provider has appointments and vaccine available.
Idahoans will no longer have to repeatedly check websites or call different providers looking for an appointment. They simply sign up and wait for an enrolled vaccine provider to contact them.
Idahoans aged 65 and older who have not received the vaccine are encouraged to use the new system so they can get on the list and an enrolled provider in their area can contact them to schedule an appointment.
The Idaho COVID-19 Vaccine Pre-registration System is open to all who live or work in Idaho.
