Once Ottawa County begins each vaccination phase, the Ottawa County Health Department will notify individuals qualifying for that phase via the phone number and/or email address provided. Please double check your contact information as it is vitally important to ensure we can reach you when ready. The form can be found at For those individuals who have a disability, no access to technology or are experiencing technical issues in completing this form, they can contact the United Way 2-1-1 line for assistance.
