The wait time on my computer was about three hours when I tried signing up Weds. morning at 11:00AM, but it quickly shortened to less than an hour. I am now registered to get my vaccine Friday afternoon.. You might find a shorter computer wait in the evening hours.
If you know someone who would like to register for the vaccine but doesn't have access to a computer, have them call 211 from any phone.
