Vaccine Best Practices

Register Your Pharmacy as a Vaccine Provider in the CDC/HealthMap Vaccine Finder As Soon as Possible

Step 1: Click here to access the Vaccine Finder website

  • Click "Find Vaccine." Search for a vaccine [i.e., flu (18+)] and include your zip code

    • If your pharmacy is not listed, proceed to step 2.

    • If your pharmacy is listed, great! Your Pharmacy has a Vaccine Finder Profile. Make sure you know your login information so when the time comes to offer COVID-19 vaccination(s), you can easily select that you offer the vaccine.

Step 2: Click here to register for an account in order for your pharmacy to be listed in the CDC Directory as a vaccine provider. 

Step 3: Receive a subsequent email that your account has been approved and complete your pharmacy's profile

  • It may take longer than one day for the account to be approved. Be on the lookout for an email with an account approval notification.

Step 4 (Future Use): When a COVID-19 vaccination has been approved, update your pharmacy's profile if you plan / are able to offer the vaccination.
