How to register to receive the COVID -19 Vaccine in the Peninsula
💉If you are looking on information on how to get a COVID-19 Vaccine the Virginia Department of Health launched a new, centralized website that allows Virginians to easily pre-register for the COVID-19 vaccine. This ‘one-stop-shop’ website allows individuals to pre-register online, check that they are pre-registered, and access additional information on Virginia’s vaccination roll-out.
💉You can visit the new state website online at www.vaccinate.virginia.gov.
💉If you have previously pre-registered through your local health district you have been automatically imported into the new system and do not need to pre-register again.
💉Data migration is continuing throughout the week and it may take several days for your name to appear in the centralized system. Everyone who has previously registered is still on the list, and their status will not be affected.
💉Recognizing that many Virginians are uncomfortable or unable to pre-register online, the Virginia Department of Health has launched a state hotline at (877) VAX-IN-VA, or (877) 829-4682.
💉Those who would like to receive the vaccine through CVS Pharmacy will still need to sign up for an appointment through the pharmacy. CVS has begun registering Virginians age 65 and older for COVID vaccinations as part of the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program. Eligible individuals can register online.
💉Virginia has vaccinated over 12% of the population with at least one dose. Demand for the COVID-19 vaccine currently far outstrips supply, and it is expected to take several months to reach all who want to be vaccinated.
💉Virginia is prioritizing people who qualify for Phase 1B: people age 65 and older; frontline essential workers; those living and working in homeless shelters, correctional facilities, and migrant labor camps; and individuals with high-risk medical conditions.
