VaccineFinder Public Display Checklist for Pharmacies using the COVID Locating Health Provider Portal

Pharmacy Quick Tips for Public Display (manual reporting)

Each location that is set to 'display' in https://vaccinefinder.orgexternal icon will show the information entered by the pharmacy partner: which vaccines are available at the site, general website, phone number, hours, and a link that leads to an appointment scheduling system or screener.

Updates to provider details submitted before 7:00 am EST will display on VaccineFinder.org the same day.

  • Determine which site(s) to activate to display to the public on VaccineFinder.org
    • Only activate locations that will receive vaccine deliveries to display.
    • All sites default to 'not display' to the public. Do not activate locations that are not open to the public.
    • For site(s) with two VTrckS provider PINs for the same location (jurisdiction and federal VTrckS PIN), only set one of these locations to display to the public.
    • The site under your federal pin is the one listed with the store number next to the location name on the Log Manually page in the provider portal.
  • Use the 'In Stock' field to update your site's availability of COVID-19 vaccines
  • Include a Link for Action for your site(s) (Screener/Scheduler field)
    • Add a valid URL that points consumers to confirm eligibility to get a vaccine or make an appointment.
    • Some states and jurisdictions use a centralized screener and/or scheduler tool for all their providers and others rely on provider-specific tools. Include the appropriate link for each location.
    • If this field is left blank (NOT populated), VaccineFinder will direct consumers to call the site for details about scheduling an appointment.
  • Ensure your site(s) phone number(s) are listed correctly
  • Include site hours of operation
  • Use the 'Provider Notes' field to share important details about your site(s)
    • E.g., appointments are required, no walk-ins, access from Courtland St., etc.
