EUGENE. Ore. – Lane County residents can now pre-register for the coronavirus vaccine on the county’s website.
Pre-registration for the vaccine is open to all members of the public.
The pre-registration information effort will help create a centralized database to help vaccinating health partners countywide contact those who want to be vaccinated and schedule an appointment when they are eligible.
Anyone with internet access is encouraged to pre-register on the online portal. Those without internet access, or who have problems navigating the internet, are encouraged to ask friends or loved ones to assist them in pre-registering online.
Lane County Public Health will also be offering pre-registration by phone in the near future.
Those who are pre-registering should do so only once and either by internet or by phone, not both.
Anyone who has already pre-registered with a healthcare provider or with their workplace should not register again on Lane County’s website, as doing so will slow down the process.
If you are in Phase 1A and have not heard from Lane County Public Health or a local provider about getting a vaccine, you should pre-register using the new link.
If you provide an email address, you will receive an email confirmation once your registration has been received.
Pre-registering does not mean you will be contacted to schedule an appointment right away. Lane County will follow Oregon Health Authority eligibility guidelines and the timeline for vaccinations will depend on supply. Even for those who are eligible to receive a vaccine, it may take time before there are enough doses to offer vaccination appointments.
Some personal demographics will be collected during the registration process to identify which phase/group people are in. The information entered will only be used for the vaccination effort and will not be shared outside of the HIPAA compliant partners distributing vaccines. As vaccine becomes available, those who register will be contacted by Lane County Public Health or a vaccinating health partner to schedule an appointment.
How the registration process will work:
Step 1: Register via the online link provided or by phone. Please take your time to answer each question as accurately as possible. (The web page may not load due to high traffic volume. If you get an error message, try again later.)
Step 2: If you register online and provide an email address, you will receive a confirmation email that Lane County received your registration.
Step 3: You will receive a weekly, automated email letting you know who is currently eligible and that you are still registered.
Step 4: When you are eligible and Lane County has doses available, it will contact you to schedule a vaccination appointment via the contact information you provided on the form.
