Last updated: April 13, 2021

At Forward, we’re working with state and city officials on securing the COVID-19 vaccine for our members as quickly as possible. Our medical staff is prepared to receive the vaccine when we are allocated doses, which we anticipate will be very short. We will let you know as soon as we receive the vaccine and you’re able to start booking appointments. Note that county health departments set eligibility criteria that we will follow for our members.

Until we receive the vaccine from government officials, we want to make sure you’re informed on how to best locate the vaccine in your area. Below you can find a series of vaccine distribution links in each of the states and counties in which we operate. If you’re eligible for a vaccine, we encourage you to schedule an appointment using the resources below.

We are committed to doing everything we can to keep our communities safe. We will continue to update this page as new information, availability, and eligibility requirements change.
