COVID-19 Updates

March 4, 2021

Dartmouth Health Connect is committed to helping our patients get access to COVID-19 updates as soon as possible. This page includes our most up to date information about COVID-19 vaccines.

As your primary care providers, we urge you to get the COVID-19 vaccine once it’s available to you. We have linked below the available COVID-19 vaccination websites in your area where you can schedule your shot. As you know, Iora does not have COVID-19 vaccines today. Please do not wait for Iora to get them!

We know that the process for scheduling COVID-19 vaccine appointments has been frustrating, time-consuming, and confusing. Unfortunately, the number of spots available depends on how many doses the state gets.  The state also decides where the new doses are sent. All we can ask of you is to have patience and keep trying as more spots open up.

Have you gotten your COVID-19 vaccine? Please let us know!
It’s important that we have the most accurate patient record for you. Fill out this form.

The state departments of health websites are our best resource for the latest information:
