After submitting your online registration form, you will receive an automated email from the CDC Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS) within 48 hours.

Can I come with my spouse or a family member?

Yes, you can come with your spouse or family member, however they may only receive the vaccine if they have an appointment. When registering online, there is an option to indicate that you will be arriving at your appointment with another Phase 1B eligible member who would like to be vaccinated. That person will verify and complete registration paperwork onsite. During the online registration process, it is so important that this box is checked because this will help to ensure the appropriate amount of vaccine doses is available for that day at the vaccination site.

How do I sign up and schedule an appointment through the Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS)?

Instructions for using the VAMS system can be found in this document.


Helpful hints when using the CDC VAMS system:

1. Please do not use Internet Explorer – instead use Google Chrome, Firefox, Edge, or Safari only.

2. The VAMS email will contain a link to schedule your appointment. Upon clicking that link, you will be asked. “Have you already registered as a vaccine recipient with VAMS?”. Please be sure to answer “no”.

3. If you registered a qualifying household member along with yourself (ie. spouse) to receive the vaccine at the same time, additional information will not be asked for or required when you schedule your appointment. Just arrive with your qualifying family member.



  • The “Date of Birth” field can only be entered in the MMM DD, YYYY format, for example: Jan 01, 1950.
  • When selecting “Race”, you must move at least one of the options from the left box to the right box.
  • You DO NOT need to enter any insurance information. This is an optional field and you can simply click the next button to move to the Organization section.
  • When asked about “organization”, you can leave the Role/Position field empty.
  • When scheduling your vaccination appointment, enter your zip code, select a radius option and click the “search” button to find the closest vaccination location.
  • When it comes time to pick a location, only select a “State of NH” site. DO NOT select a clinic or closed POD unless you were specifically instructed to do so.
  • Once your appointment is scheduled, you will see a confirmation page AND receive a confirmation email. Be sure to complete the pre-vaccination questionnaire before coming to the vaccination site, this will help to speed up your appointment and reduce delays.
