Pre-screening is open for all Phase 1A healthcare workers interested in being vaccinated for COVID-19. Because supplies are limited it will be available by appointment only and pre-screening is required to determine eligibility in most counties. For example, in Maricopa County you can go to their Phase 1A prescreening worksheet to check you or your family member’s eligibility. That site also lays out the various eligibility categories.

The first allocation of vaccine doses will be prioritized to individuals that ACIP has recommended to be in Phase 1A: those working in a healthcare setting, especially those with the most potential exposure to COVID-19, as well as residents and staff of long-term care facilities.

To determine your eligibility, please complete this pre-screen survey as the first step to scheduling an appointment. Your response will help MCDPH determine your eligibility and connect you with your assigned regional vaccine provider, based on the location of your primary worksite.

I tested the system out so I could write about how it works, but I was (appropriately) screened out at Step 1.

Note: Through the Pharmacy Partnership for Long-term Care Program, CDC has engaged retail pharmacy partners (CVS and Walgreens) to secure vaccine and provide on-site vaccination of residents, at no cost to the facility. Skilled Nursing Facilities residents and staff will receive the vaccine first followed by Assisted Living and other adult congregate settings.
