According to the DOH in Marion County, they will continue to honor appointment requests through their original online sign-up form, but all future appointments will be made through the state website or phone number at 866-201-6768.

The new system is a running list. It will take a bit of time between when someone registers to the time they receive an appointment, since you are placing yourself in a queue to be called. The department is still working through the list of individuals who signed up in the older system.
