A New COVID-19 Vaccine Pre-Registration Portal by Phone

If you know someone who has been having trouble arranging for an appointment for the COVID-19 Vaccination, or doesn’t have access to a computer, here’s something you might try.

Suffolk County has opened a vaccine pre-registration portal by phone. Suffolk County Residents, OVER THE AGE OF 60, can now register by phone and they will be contacted by Suffolk County when it is their turn for the vaccine. Please note that this does NOT take the place of the NYS appointments, and you should continue to try Walgreens, CVS, and the NYS and Suffolk web portals to make an appointment. Instead, it will get you onto a waiting list for an appointment so that you can be contacted when your turn comes up.

To use this service, FIRST try dialing 311 by phone. If that doesn’t help, try calling your local legislative office directly: Suffolk County District 3 Rudy Sunderman, at 631-852-1300, or District 7 Robert Calarco, at 631-853-4088.
