Age 70 & Over: Register now for our Covid-19 Vaccine Appointment Waiting List (Age 60 & over may Register beginning at 12 p.m. on Wednesday, March 3)

 

York Hospital is now registering  community members who are Maine residents and age 70 and over for our vaccine appointment waiting list. Beginning at 12 p.m. (noon) on Wednesday, March 3, Maine residents age 60 and over will also be able to register. Maine residents, age 70 and above, who have already registered for our vaccine waiting list will not lose their space on the waiting list. All appointments are scheduled in the order that reservations are made. Please note that if you are not a health care worker, or do not meet the Maine eligibility requirements as listed above, your reservation will not be kept and you will need to register again when you do become eligible.

York Hospital’s goal remains to offer clinics Monday through Friday, providing 400 vaccines (both first and second doses) each day, dependent upon our vaccine allocation.

The most effective method of signing up for the vaccine appointment waiting list is to use the online registration form; see instructions below.

 

Online Reservation List

The button at top right will bring you to an online form, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, which will ask for your:

  • Full Name
  • Date of Birth (age 70 and over; age 60 and over beginning at noon on March 3)
  • Phone number (cell preferred, if possible)
  • Email address (if you have one)

Once you provide that information and click submit, your name will be added to the reservation waiting list for future Covid-19 vaccine clinics. 

A York Hospital caregiver will call you to set up your appointment for a specific date and time. Each person who submits reservation information WILL receive a call back; please help us streamline the process by being patient and waiting for us to call you. Call back order will correspond to the time stamp generated when each form is submitted and may take several weeks.

 

Phone Reservation List

If you prefer to be added to the reservation waiting list via telephone, please call 207-752-8685, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  A caregiver will assist you in submitting the information listed above.

HOW TO SIGN UP FOR THE VACCINE IF YOU HAVE OR ARE RECOVERING FROM COVID-19

PLEASE NOTE: If you currently have or are recovering from COVID-19, you must wait to receive the vaccine until after you’ve finished your full isolation period, which the CDC defines as follows:

  1. 10 days since symptoms first appeared and
  2. 24 hours with no fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and
  3. Other symptoms of COVID-19 are improving. NOTE: Some symptoms, including loss of sense of smell/taste, can persist for weeks. Therefore, as long as certain symptoms, including respiratory symptoms, are improving, isolation can be considered completed if all other criteria are met. Please visit the U.S. CDC website for complete details: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/if-you-are-sick/end-home-isolation.html
