While you do have other options for getting vaccinated, including through your county’s health department, if you choose to use Vanderbilt, here’s what you need to know:
All vaccine appointments will be scheduled through Vanderbilt’s patient portal, My Health at Vanderbilt (MHAV).
You must have access to an email account to select this option.
If you already have an MHAV account:
Log on to check your communication preferences and make sure you have chosen to get email notices.
If you’ve been to Vanderbilt or the MNPS Health Care Centers before, but do not have an MHAV account:
Go to myhealthatvanderbilt.com and click Create New Account.
If you’ve never been seen at Vanderbilt or the MNPS Health Care Centers:
Call 1-888-312-0847 (8 a.m.-5 p.m., 7 days a week) and press 1 to establish a record so you can create an MHAV account.
When you call, identify yourself as an MNPS employee or retiree and have your insurance information handy.
Once you have established a record, Vanderbilt will send you an email invite to setup an MHAV account.
If you experience trouble with any of the above steps, call the MNPS Health Care Centers at
615-259-8755 for assistance. Calls are answered Monday-Friday 6:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. and
Saturday 7:30 a.m.-2 p.m.
Once your MHAV account is set up:
Vanderbilt will email you when it’s time for you to schedule your first vaccine appointment (based on priority groups).
Watch for an email with the subject line: “You have a new message in My Health at Vanderbilt.”
Follow the prompts in that email to log into your MHAV account, where you will see a blue button in your To Do List.
Click the blue button to schedule your date and time for a vaccination.
Note: Vanderbilt is only distributing the Pfizer vaccine at this time. It is given in two doses 21 days apart. You will confirm the date of your second dose at your first vaccination appointment. It’s important to show up for both appointments.
