Covid-19 Vaccination Roll-Out

The COVID-19 vaccination roll-out in Virginia is being led by the Virginia Department of Health (VDH). The information below will help you determine when you might be eligible to receive a vaccine and how to access a vaccine when it becomes available.

  • Not sure when you may be eligible to get vaccinated? Complete this short form to find out. You will also need to pre-register via VDH’s Statewide Vaccine Pre-Registration System on Vaccinate Virginia to be alerted when you may receive a vaccine. Completing the pre-registration form does not secure or schedule a vaccination appointment. Once you pre-register with this centralized system, you will receive updates about your pre-registration status. You will also be notified when you are eligible to be vaccinated so that you can schedule your vaccination appointment.  The pre-registration form is available in English and Spanish.
  • If you have already pre-registered with your local health department, you will not have to register again. Not sure if you have registered? Click here to find out.
  • You can call 1-877-VAX-IN-VA to speak with someone if you prefer to pre-register by phone or have questions.
  • The Virginia Department of Health will also launch an accompanying hotline number that will enable Virginians to pre-register by phone.
  • 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. Learn more about Virginia’s COVID-19 vaccine roll out plan on VDH’s COVID-19 Vaccination Response page(information about priority groups, phase information, FAQs, maps, and links to local health departments).

Additional Vaccination Avenues:

  • Currently, CVS Pharmacy will vaccinate Virginians age 65 and older as part of the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program for COVID-19 Vaccination.
  • The Federal Retail Pharmacy Program supplements existing vaccination programs by providing Virginia with 26,000 additional vaccines per week – in addition to the regular state allocation. CVS is the first of Virginia’s pharmacy partners in the federal pharmacy partnership to provide vaccines. More pharmacies and more locations are expected to start vaccinating patients in the future.
  • Visit CVS’s vaccine scheduler to view availability and schedule an appointment as they are available.
  • The Biden-Harris administration launched a Health Center COVID-19 Vaccine Program in February to help increase vaccine availability in underserved communities and those disproportionately affected by COVID-19. The initial phase of this program will increase access to vaccines to 250 health centers nationwide. More centers will be added as vaccine supply increases. Click here for participating sites.

Educational Materials:

  • Because COVID-19 is a new disease with new vaccines, information is rapidly emerging about how vaccines can help us stop the pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) will update this page with more information about what we know—and what we don’t know—as it becomes available.
  • Visit VDH’s COVID-19 Vaccine Education Toolkit for more information about how the vaccines were developed, approved, and manufactured, as well as differences between the two approved vaccines. The toolkit also outlines what to expect when you get the vaccine. Some of the handouts are available in multiple languages and all are free to download.
