Ready To Get The COVID Vaccine? Here’s How To Book It In Your State

Eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccine has rapidly expanded in recent weeks. As of April 19, everyone over age 16 is eligible to get vaccinated in every state. But how are you supposed to sign up?

In late April, the Biden administration launched a few centralized tools to help with the process. You can look up your zip code and see a map of vaccine providers near you at Vaccines.gov — the Spanish-language version of the website is Vacunas.gov.

And you can get help via text: If you text your zip code to GETVAX (for English) or VACUNA (for Spanish) you will get a message back with three possible vaccination sites, with phone numbers to call for an appointment.

But some aspects of the vaccination campaign vary by place, so NPR created a tool to guide you through the process in your state and connect you with local resources. And we’re sharing advice for navigating the system below.

Search for your state below. (There are a few large cities with their own immunization plans that you’ll find on our list as well.)
