HAMPTON—The Virginia Department of Health’s Peninsula Health District—which serves Newport News, Poquoson, Williamsburg, James City County, and York County—and the Hampton Health District, have opened COVID-19 vaccinations to Phase 1c as of Monday, April 5. However, pre-registered members of Phase 1a and 1b will continue to be prioritized.
The Phase 1c group includes essential workers in energy, water, wastewater and waste removal, housing and construction, food service, transportation and logistics, institutions of higher learning, finance, information technology and communications, media, legal services, public safety, and public health.
Vaccines are available by pre-registration and appointment. To pre-register, or to update your pre-registration record, visit www.vaccinate.virginia.gov or call 1-877-VAX-IN-VA (1-877-829-4682). English- and Spanish-speaking operators are available, and translation services for more than 100 different languages can be provided. For TTY, dial 711.
Virginia is expected to move to Phase 2 on Monday, April 18, although some communities may make the transition sooner. This means that anyone 16 and older who lives or works in Virginia will be eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccination.
