As the State of Maine continues to vaccinate thousands of Mainers a day for COVID-19, more and more people will become eligible for it. If you are one of the Mainers that currently is not eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine, you can pre-register right now so when it's your turn, the state can contact you and provide you with your options.

As of March 23, people in Maine age 50 or older are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Beginning April 19, Mainers 16 and over will be eligible for the vaccine, but those people can begin the process today with Maine's Pre-Registration & Appointment System.

By filling out some information online, including contact information, you'll be notified of your options for getting the vaccine when it's your turn. I went through the process myself and it took just a minute.

You will need access to an email address to pre register, but it's 2021, so you likely have that covered. If for some reason you have issues with registering online or don't have an email address, you can call the Maine COVID-19 Community Vaccination Line at 1-888-445-4111, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. or on weekends 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
