Well, this may be why some are not getting their vaccination appointments!

I am in need of my second dose but do not have an appointment. When will I receive my second dose?

If you received your first dose through DOH Leon, we will contact you to schedule your second dose. Be sure to answer your phone when it rings, as vaccine volunteers will not leave voicemail messages. Volunteers may call from non-850 area codes or may appear as “no caller ID” or as “unknown."

If you did not receive your first dose from DOH-Leon, you will need to get your second dose from wherever you received your first dose, or by some other option.

What happens if I am not able to answer my phone when a vaccine representative calls me?

Even if you're not able to answer your phone when a vaccine volunteer representative calls to schedule your COVID-19 vaccine appointment, your name will remain on the master list. Volunteers will periodically call back to attempt to schedule an appointment but will not leave voicemails. So, be sure to answer your phone when it rings if you're waiting for COVID-19 vaccine.

I've given up answering the phone most of the time unless I recognize the number. But this changes things - it seems as though in order to get an appointment, I will have to answer every call. This sucks since I will have to put up with talking to many scammers.

1. Yes that does suck, especially when it leaves no identifiable ID number.

Of course most of us would assume that the call was from a scammer. Our local Hospital is communicating through e-mail.

2. No need to talk to them, just hang up

as soon as you realize they're not vaccine volunteers.

6. Usually I cuss at the robocalls

And am rude to the real people scammers - unless I want to string them along.

But recently I have just not been answering calls at all if I don't recognize the numbers. I guess I will go back to taking my frustrations out on the scammers and hope that the vaccination people will call eventually.

3. I never answer the phone if I don't recognize the number.

I figure if it’s important they’ll leave a message, so this system wouldn’t work for me at all

4. Here in West Virginia,

your second appointment is scheduled and written on your vaccine record card before you leave after getting your first shot. I don't have to answer any unknown phone calls!


(FYI - I've had my first shot and will get the second next week. My mom has had both, and I just took her to the drive-through set up by the county health department. Easy-peasy! It's nice to have something that West Virginia is doing better than anywhere else in the country.)

5. That's nuts.

I'm really bad about not answering numbers I don't know. I just don't have time to answer them. My mother is waiting for a call to get her second COVID shot. Fortunately, she answers everything, even when she knows it's probably somebody wanting to waste her time (car warranty).
