Cancelling A Vaccination Appointment

Cancelling A Vaccination Appointment Page Banner

We know that you are looking for the earliest vaccination appointment that you can find. We get it. But if you schedule an appointment with the Porter County Health Department (PCHD), then find an earlier appointment somewhere else, PLEASE COME BACK AND CANCEL YOUR APPOINTMENT WITH US!

This only applies to the PCHD sites located at the Porter County Expo Center in Valpo or the Porter County Government North County Annex in Portage.

We have been experiencing an up to 20% NO SHOW rate of scheduled appointments every day! That's almost 100 appointents daily that someone else could have used. So PLEASE help us by cancelling your appointment with us if you aren't going to use it. By doing so, you could be saving someone else's life!


Here are three ways you can cancel your appointment:

  1. GO HERE to complete and submit a simple online form to the Health Department and we will cancel your appointment. The form is available to you 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  2. Call the Health Department at (219) 465-3525. Our hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM. As you can imagine, we are pretty busy these days and we would very much appreciate it if you would use the online form listed above. 
  3. Call 211. Their call center is available between 8:00 AM and 8:00 PM EST, seven days a week. Just a caution, during their peak periods, you could end up being on hold for awhile.
