(CNN) – People looking to have “Obamacare” health insurance coverage starting January 1st are being given a few more days to enroll.

The deadline to enroll through the federal exchange is now 11:59 p-m pacific standard time on Monday, December 19th.

Officials pushed back the deadline from December 15th after experiencing heavy volume in recent days. President-elect Donald Trump’s vow to repeal Obamacare has not deterred people from signing up.

The federal exchange, healthcare.gov, handles sign-ups for 39 states. Some states that run their own exchanges have also pushed back their enrollment deadlines.
