Vaccine Appointment Assistance 

The Marco Patriots are working hard to help those 60+ and those of any age with health issues in our community book Covid-19 vaccine appointments. If you fall into that category, please send an email to


For those who do not fall into these categories, we encourage you to try the different sites below to book vaccine appointments for yourselves.


Here to Help

A Few General Tips:

· Have your date of birth, address, cell phone # and email ready to input into sites

· Sites often do not give notice when they will open for bookings so check back several times daily.

· When you book an appointment, either take a screen shot or print out the confirmation of your appointment. Not all sites will send you a confirmation. Some sites will show your name and confirmation numbers, others will only show the date, time and location.

· Patience and perseverance are the keys to success. Rarely will you be successful instantly.

· Pfizer& Moderna are offering vaccines in our area. Quantities and distribution of each vary.

It has come to our attention that the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the US Food and Drug Administration are recommending that the United States pause the use of Johnson & Johnson's Covid-19 vaccine over six reported US cases of a "rare and severe" type of blood clot. Marco Patriots are not currently booking J&J vaccine appointments.

1. Over the phone. Call 877-250-5823. Their voice system will give you several options. When prompted, say that you “want help with something else” and then say that you “want to speak with a representative”. Do not take the option for the pharmacy. This telephone line is open 8:00 am to 11:00 pm daily. Their customer service staff use the same on-line booking system that the general public uses when booking appointments. People are able to book appointments without having a Walgreens account or an email. They will give the caller a confirmation # and store address and appointment details.


2. To book on their on-line system, each person needs to set up their own account.
