The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is notifying the public that the federally supported website that makes it easier for individuals to access COVID-19 vaccines is now live. Vaccines.gov — powered by the trusted VaccineFinder brand – is available in English and Spanish with high accessibility standards and will help connect Americans with locations offering vaccines near them.

In addition to the website, Americans are able to utilize a new text message service, also accessible in both English and Spanish. To use the service, you must text your ZIP code to 438829 ("GETVAX") and 822862 ("VACUNA") to find three locations nearby that have vaccines available.

Vaccines.gov is meant to complement the number of state and pharmacy websites that have been successfully connecting many Americans with vaccinations, by providing a unified federal resource for Americans to use no matter where they are. 

In addition to the website and text messaging service, the National COVID-19 Vaccination Assistance Hotline is now available to help those who prefer to get information by phone on where to get a vaccine. Call (800) 232-0233 to find a location near you.
