Local Vaccination Information

Virginia’s vaccination site is now open

Please note that the COVID-19 Vaccination registration website for the state of Virginia is now active. 

Register here

Currently, employees of IHEs will be in the preregistration phase as we remain in Category 1C. We continue to work with and communicate with local health care officials each week on vaccine availability.

Note that when asking about employment status in the preregistration form, there is a specific place to click “Institutions of Higher Education Faculty or Staff.” Clicking this is important as it will dictate to the system that your preregistration belongs in Category 1C.<
