COVID-19 vaccines are continuing to rollout and those who qualify are now saying that getting an appointment is just as easy as signing up on the website whether it's on your phone or laptop.

Dr. Tina Stefanski says that she's seeing an increase in the demand for vaccines.

The eligibility requirements dramatically expanded to include anyone 16 and older with underlying health conditions, people who are overweight, past or present smokers, and nearly two dozen other broadly defined health conditions.

Many were also concerned whether vaccines could go bad after being stored for an extended period of time Dr. Stefanski says they've changed how they handle storage... and vaccines are rolling out quickly.

For those who are still questioning whether to get the vaccine, Dr. Stefanski is reminding everyone that the virus shouldn't be taken lightly.
