Important Vaccine Updates

Our vaccination schedule link was due to go live on Tuesday January 19.  Unfortunately, we are experiencing a delay and it will be up and running as soon as possible. 

When the link is posted, we will only be able to vaccinate individuals who fall under the Phase 1A (see below). 

It is our hope to move on to Phase 1B soon, however, we are required to prioritize Phase 1A. 

Please check back for updates on what Phase we are vaccinating. 

Please do NOT call or email about the vaccine.

The Divine Providence campus is private property. Please DO NOT come to the Divine Providence campus without an appointment. We DO NOT accept walk-ins for vaccines.

Thank you and stay safe.
