Update on COVID-19 Vaccine: COVID-19 vaccine is being distributed in a phased approach. Virginia’s local health districts will progress through prioritization phases at different times, depending on vaccine supply and demand. Prince William County had started phase 1b on January 11th. Phase 1b involves vaccinating people in these groups:
● Frontline essential workers (police, fire, and hazmat; corrections and homeless shelter workers; childcare and K-12 teachers and staff; food and agriculture [including veterinarians and veterinary technicians]; manufacturing; grocery store workers; public transit workers; public and private mail carriers; and officials needed to maintain continuity of government)
● Persons aged 65 years and older or younger than 65 but presence of other chronic medical conditions like asthma, diabetes, heart disease, immunodeficiencies, COPD etc
● People living in correctional facilities, homeless shelters and migrant labor camps
As of this point of time we had not received COVID 19 vaccine to administer to our patients. Please visitVirginia Department of Healthfor further information and to register for vaccine administration.
