New Vaccine Registration Website
By: Boone County Health Center
As part of an ongoing effort to distribute the COVID-19 vaccine, Governor Pete Ricketts announced the State has launched an online portal where Nebraskans can register for coronavirus vaccinations at vaccinate.ne.gov or call 531-249-1873 or 833-998-2275
Anyone who registered with the Health Department will automatically transfer over to the State list. It is suggested that those who have contacted Boone County Health Center to get on the list also get on the state site and register to ensure notification when vaccine is available.
“As our government disperses the vaccine, the situation is changing rapidly. We began collecting names of those who called in for a vaccine, so we would be ready when vaccines arrived. However, the new State website offers a system which will hopefully streamline vaccine distribution. Boone County Health Center will no longer be taking names for a list. Patients will need to register on the State website,” said Boone County Health Center Vice President of Corporate Compliance Jeanne Temme.
Here’s how to register:
- Visit ne.gov or call 531-249-1873 or 833-998-2275
- Fill out a short questionnaire.
- You will receive an email confirming your registration if you provide an email address.
- When you are selected in the phase you are eligible for, you will receive an email with instructions on how to schedule your vaccination. If you don’t have an email address but enter a phone number, you will be contacted by either text or phone call.
The State website urges Nebraskans to continue avoiding crowded places, close contact with others, and confined spaces, and to wear a mask to make Nebraska safe.
