NCDHD will have volunteers available for a call-a-thon event to get district residents registered for the COVID-19 vaccine on Monday, March 8th from 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM.  To participate in the call-a-thon registration call 402-336-2406 between 4:00 PM and 8:00 PM.  If you have already registered there is no need to register again. This call-a-thon is for registration only. Those who call in will not be scheduled for a vaccination appointment and to allow for processing as many new registrations as possible, NCDHD will not be able to confirm your name on our list during this event.  If you registered previously and received a confirmation email or confirmation screen, you should have confidence that NCDHD has your name on our registry.  NCDHD is currently vaccinating 65+ community members.  Clinics are scheduled and calls are made to schedule registered residents for vaccination appointments as quickly as vaccine can come into the office. NCDHD appreciates the patience of our district as we work to get vaccine out to our communities as quickly as possible.
