Where to get vaccination info without internet access
As coronavirus vaccines continue to roll out in North Dakota, people who do not have Internet access are asking where they can get vaccination information and how they get signed up for the vaccine.
Getting information to people without online access is critical so they can also get in line until such time when supply of the vaccine meets demand.
Those who don’t have access to a computer should first contact their health care provider. If you don’t have a provider, call the N.D. Department of Health’s toll-free vaccine hotline at 866-207-2880. They may be able to help you set up an appointment for the vaccine, or refer you to providers where you live.
Or, call a family member or neighbor with Internet access to help you find information about COVID-19 vaccine availability where you live using the N.D. Department of Health’s vaccine locator.
We continue to hear from older North Dakotans looking for facts about the vaccine. They want to know where and when they can get the vaccine, what they need to bring, and if there is a cost.
Officials recommend that you bring a driver’s license or other state-issued ID that shows your name, age and state residency, and your health insurance card, if you have one. You should not have any out-of-pocket cost for getting the vaccine. AARP fought tirelessly to ensure the vaccines are free. People without health insurance can also receive the vaccine for free.
AARP North Dakota has launched a new webpage, www.aarp.org/NDvaccine, to help people cut through the confusion and share details of what we know for sure so that people can make their own decisions.
AARP fought for older Americans to be prioritized in getting one of the COVID-19 vaccines because the science shows that older people are at higher risk of death from the coronavirus. And we’re fighting hard to help people get the facts of the COVID vaccine. We know there is no time to waste.
