Here's how to schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment in Pennsylvania

The Pa. Department of Health has added more groups of people to phase 1A of the vaccine rollout, making millions of Pennsylvanians eligible for the shot.

PENNSYLVANIA, USA — Editor's note: The above video is from January 20.

Looking for more information on the COVID-19 vaccine?

Millions of people are now eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine in Pennsylvania.

Plenty of people are asking how they sign up to get the shot.

Here's how it works:

First, you need to go to this website.

You can take a quiz to see if you're eligible for the vaccine right now.

If it is your turn, you can head to step 2, which is a map of all the COVID-19 vaccine providers in Pennsylvania.

You can type in your address, or zoom in and find some providers near you.

Then you'll see a bunch of these dots.

All vaccine providers on the map are marked with blue dots -- whether they've received doses or not.

You can click on that dot and you'll either be re-directed to go to that facility's website to schedule an appointment to get the shot or you'll see a phone number or email to contact.

Different locations have different protocols on how to schedule, so you'll have to follow those instructions.

For instance, a Rite Aid location will take you to where you could be waiting for a bit. 

Remember, just because you are eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine, does not mean you will get it right away.

PA Department of Health officials say there are not currently enough doses of the COVID-19 vaccine in the commonwealth to vaccinate all 3.5 million people in phase 1a.

Instead, they said that process will likely take a few weeks.
