COVID-19 Vaccine

Virginia's governor announced plans to speed up vaccine distribution and the reopening of schools.

Members of Group 1B in the Richmond area – which includes emergency personnel and teachers – will soon be able to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

Health districts in southwest Virginia will move into the next phase of vaccine distribution starting Monday.


Update: On January 12th, VCU announced it would begin offering COVID-19 vaccinations to students in clinical and patient-facing environments.

The school estimates about 2,100 students will qualify.

Virginia has begun vaccinating people on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. And now, Governor Ralph Northam has provided a roadmap for the state’s next steps.
