The two websites below are provided by Montgomery County and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to provide information on the COVID-19 vaccines. These two sites will tell you what you need to know and what you need to do to get a vaccination.

Montgomery County has announced pre-registration for the COVID-19 vaccine by phone can be accessed through the COVID-19 hotline at (833) 875-3967. To pre-register by phone, callers should let the agent know they would like support in pre-registering for a vaccine appointment. Volunteers are available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to support callers in pre-registering for vaccine appointments. When a vaccine appointment becomes available, volunteers will call back to schedule the appointment.

The Montgomery County COVID-19 hotline is operational six days a week, Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., with live operators. Phone pre-registration for vaccine appointments is available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

In addition, the hotline has language line support for over 100+ different languages. We encourage people to call the hotline or email COVID19@montcopa.org with general questions about COVID-19 and the vaccine. Please note, the COVID-19 hotline cannot provide updates or timelines on vaccine pre-registration, or troubleshoot issues with vaccine app.
