COVID-19 Vaccination Provider Recruitment and Enrollment  

North Carolina will prioritize early outreach, recruitment and enrollment of key providers and agencies who serve populations with high risk of clinical severity and high risk of exposure. The Advisory Committee will help to identify and engage those providers. North Carolina has created a streamlined electronic process for provider enrollment applications, licensure verification, storage and handling assessments, and approval and denial letters. Enrollment is already underway with local health departments, hospitals and health systems.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Providers will need to complete enrollment to gain access to the CVMS Provider Portal.   To learn how to enroll view the Provider Enrollment Demo.

  • Track COVID-19 vaccine administration 

In future CVMS releases, providers will also be able to schedule clinics.
