Those who are a healthcare provider ad fit within the priority group in Phase 1 and would like to provide vaccine through their facility, please contact the Idaho Immunization Program for enrollment information.

Once there is enough supply, COVID-19 vaccination providers many choose to make their location visible on VaccineFinder, making it easier for the general public to find provider locations that have COVID-19 vaccine available. CDC will direct the public to use VaccineFinder to find locations offering COVID-19 vaccine. PH-INCD will continue to communicate with the community as greater supply of the vaccine becomes available.

The COVID-19 Vaccine Advisory Committee meetings are open to the public to view online and the information from the meetings can be found on their webpage: https://coronavirus.idaho.gov/idaho-covid-19-vaccine-advisory-committee/
