REMINDER ABOUT VACCINE ELIGIBILITY, ELIGIBILITY CHANGES AND CLARIFICATIONS
On March 15, 2021, vaccine eligibility expanded so it’s important to review new eligibility criteria, and to share notifications (including updated clarifications of Phase 1A and Phase 1B).
Verification of eligibility can occur through self-attestation during online or onsite registration, or through health system providers who invite eligible patients based on electronic health records. To encourage only eligible patients to make appointments, all clinical and vaccine providers should share accurate eligibility criteria (see links below). Some vaccine providers may choose to require some type of verification at the vaccination site. If that is the case, patients should be given clear, advanced notice of what documentation to bring.
