In order to schedule a vaccination appointment for anyone 16 or 17:

  1. A parent/guardian must first have their own Inova MyChart account. Please sign up for Inova MyChart and then follow the instructions below.

  3. The Inova Medical Records team will email an activation link to the teen's email address to set up their account. 
  4. Once the activation link has been received by the teen, the teen's Inova MyChart account can be created.

    • Read and Agree to Terms and Conditions
    • Click Send Invite
  7.  The parent/guardian will receive an email invitation to link the two accounts.
  8. The parent should accept the invite to link the accounts. 
  9. The parent/guardian should then log into their own Inova MyChart account and in the upper right corner, select the option to switch to their teens account
  10. The parent/guardian can now schedule the vaccine appointment for the teen.

Questions about MyChart

Why is Inova using MyChart?

For vaccine patients, using MyChart allows you to make same-day appointments or reschedule if necessary, set reminder notices, check-in electronically prior to your appointment, and have your vaccination connected to your other health records if you already are an Inova patient.

For Inova, use of MyChart allows us to better manage appointments and our vaccine supply. For example, we can use the system to balance first and second dose appointments on any given day so we can administer vaccine more efficiently and effectively. In the first week of using MyChart for vaccine scheduling we were able to provide 20% more first dose shots by converting unused second dose appointments thanks to MyChart’s data management and same-day scheduling features. Further, use of this electronic health record provides more accurate and complete data to share with our health department partners and the Commonwealth of Virginia as required for reporting on vaccine distribution.

Why am I being asked to provide the last four digits of my Social Security number?

This is not a required field. The standard online form asks you to provide the last four digits of our Social Security number as just one option as part of the registration and identity verification process.

Why am I being asked questions by Experian? Does this involve or affect my credit rating?

Registering for MyChart does not involve or affect your credit rating. The MyChart registration form includes a series of questions provided by “Precise ID powered by Experian,” a third party partner used to help verify your identity. With MyChart being an electronic health record, it is imperative that we verify your identity to ensure proper care and handling of your sensitive medical information. Please answer the series of questions to proceed to the next portion of the registration page. If for some reason we are not able to verify your identity, the page will prompt you with instructions to contact the MyChart team so that we may further assist you in registering and then scheduling your appointment.

Why am I being asked to provide insurance information? Isn’t the vaccine free?

As part of the electronic check-in process prior to your appointment, you will be asked to provide insurance information. If you are receiving the COVID-19 vaccine through Inova, there will be no out-of-pocket cost to you. Inova will be collecting insurance information from those who have insurance and will work with insurance plans to cover allowed charges for vaccine administration. If an insurance plan does not cover charges, Inova will not pursue payment from the patient. Lack of insurance will not prevent you from scheduling a vaccine appointment. Please just select the appropriate response indicating you do not have insurance.

If I am experiencing difficulty registering for MyChart, can I have a family member assist me?

Yes, if you would feel more comfortable having a family member, or even a trusted friend, assist you in the online registration process, you are welcome to authorize someone to do so. However, the individual must enter only your information, not their own. If the information does not correspond with your personal information, we may be unable to verify your identify and the MyChart and scheduling process could fail.

How do I schedule my second dose?

  • Immediately following your first dose vaccination, you will receive an email notification titled "You have a new COVID-19 Vaccination Scheduling Ticket" from Inova MyChart letting you know when it is time to schedule your second appointment.
  • You will be due for your 2nd dose vaccine a minimum of 17 days from the day after your first Pfizer-BioNTech vaccination. You will be turned away if you show up for a vaccine prior to that.  
  • Although it is optimal to receive the second dose as close as possible to the recommended interval, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states the second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine may be administered up to 6 weeks (42 days) after the first dose. The vaccine series does not need to be restarted even if the second dose is administered late.

I forgot my Inova MyChart ID and/or password.

If you forgot your Inova MyChart ID and/or password please select the appropriate action under the “sign in” button on the MyChart login page to reset your account.
