The standby list for leftover COVID vaccine
Vaccination locations sometimes have unused, extra doses of COVID vaccine they must either use or throw out. We give providers like pharmacies or clinics with leftover doses a way to reach nearby people looking to get vaccinated on a moment's notice.
No wasted vaccine. No hours-long lines. Verified providers.
How it works
Leftovers happen. People miss their appointments. Vials come with extra doses. The Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are extremely temperature sensitive. Any thawed vials must be used within 6 hours, or they get thrown out.
Until now, people have been lining up for hours for the chance to get a one of these leftover doses.
They let us know
Vaccination Standby lets providers with extra, unused doses reach people within driving distance who want to get vaccinated. A provider posts a drop with the number of doses + any instructions. If it’s their first time posting a drop, we verify its authenticity and register them for faster drops later.
We let you know
If you’ve signed up here, we’ll send you a text message if your address is nearby. You have 15 minutes to confirm that you want one, and can start heading over immediately. When you arrive, a vaccine dose is still not guaranteed, and you should follow any instructions from the provider.
