Updated ways to register for vaccine in Macon

Macon County Public Health has established an additional Call Center with the assistance of Drake Enterprises and Macon County Administration to offer several options for individuals to get registered for the COVID-19 vaccination. The options are as follows:

Option 1: Individuals may access a web link on the right side of the Macon County home page at maconnc.org and complete the form to include their last name, first name and email address. Once this information is submitted, Macon County Public Health will be able to upload the information into the state COVID-19 Vaccination Management System (CVMS). After CVMS receives the submission, an email will be sent to the address provided allowing the individual to complete the registration process and set-up their password. Following confirmation that their registration is complete and their phase confirmed, individuals may call 828.349.2517, Option 2 to schedule their appointment once we begin vaccinating their eligible phase/group.

Option 2: Individuals with an email address may call 828.524.1500 and speak with a representative to provide their last name, first name and email address. Once this information is obtained, Macon County Public Health will submit the information to the state COVID-19 Vaccination Management System (CVMS). After CVMS receives the information, an email will be sent to the address provided allowing the individual to complete the registration process and set-up their password. Following confirmation that their registration is complete and their phase confirmed, individuals may call 828.349.2517, Option 2 to schedule their appointment once we begin vaccinating their eligible phase/group.

Option 3: Individuals without an email address may call 828.349.2517, Option 2 and speak with a representative who will get them registered in the state COVID-19 Vaccination Management System (CVMS) after completion of a brief questionnaire. Once the registration has been completed, an appointment will be scheduled. No additional steps are needed.

In an effort to facilitate registrations, the Call Centers will operate on Monday, January 18th, 2021 from 8:00am – 4:00 pm. Regular hours of 8:00am – 4:00pm will resume on Tuesday, January 19th, 2021 from 8:00am – 4:00pm.

Macon County remains in Phase 1B, Group 1 for vaccination at this time. This group includes those who are 75 years of age or older, regardless of health status and will provide updates as we move to the next group or phase.
