COVID-19

Vaccine shot Request for Immediate COVID-19 Vaccination Prioritization due to Urgent Medical Need 
Use this request, if you believe you have an urgent medical need requiring immediate vaccination. This request should be used only when an individual will soon have a severely compromised immune system that would make future vaccination against SARS-CoV-2 ineffective and where all means of vaccination outside of NIH has been exhausted. A chronic medical condition or advanced age alone would not be grounds for this exception process to the current vaccination plan, nor would upcoming travel or a social event.
