More about Distribution Priority Phases
Because there will be a limited supply while production increases, the vaccine will be distributed based on a phased system that prioritizes individuals by risk. Overlap of vaccination of groups is expected to ensure people are vaccinated as quickly and efficiently as possible.
- Phase 1a: Frontline medical workers, Residents of Long Term Care Facilities
- Phase 1b: Frontline Essential Workers, Persons Aged 65 years and Older, People aged 16 through 64 years with a High-Risk Medical Condition or Disability that Increases Their Risk of Severe Illness from COVID-19, and People Living in Correctional Facilities, Homeless Shelters and Migrant Labor Camps
- Phase 1c: Other Essential Workers
- Phase 2: General population
The CDC has made recommendations about the next groups of people who should receive vaccinations, and VDH will ensure the vaccines are distributed to those people regardless of where they live in Virginia.
Vaccine Contact Info for Surrounding Health Districts
Here is the contact info for each of the surrounding health districts. Call Centers will have the most up-to-date info on their district’s vaccine process but may have trouble taking calls as there is a high call volume right now. There will also be a delay in responses to these inquiries, as thousands of people continue to submit them, but we are working hard to reach everyone and will be contacting anyone that completes the survey at some point.
