News Hours for LVHN COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline Beginning Week of June 14

LVHN is updating the hours of our COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline beginning the week of June 14. The new hours of operation will be Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Now that many people have been vaccinated and the number of those expressing an interest in still getting vaccinated has dropped, we are adjusting our schedules accordingly and discontinuing weekend hours.

For those wanting to make an appointment for the COVID-19 vaccine, LVHN now offers more options than ever to get your vaccination:

  1. Self-schedule right on the LVHN website at LVHN.org/appointments.
  2. Schedule on MyLVHN, our patient portal, at MyLVHN.org.
  3. Call 833-584-6283 (833-LVHN-CVD). The COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline is open Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.
  4. Walk-ins also are accepted at all locations except for the new Emrick Blvd. drive-through.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyone 12 years and older should get vaccinated to help protect against COVID-19. Widespread vaccination is critical to help stop the pandemic. Getting you and your child vaccinated can bring you one step closer to enjoying the activities you miss.
