*** An important update to the COVID-19 vaccination pre-registration process***
The Commonwealth of Virginia is launching a Statewide Vaccine Pre-Registration System to provide a unified and comprehensive process for people in Virginia to pre-register for the COVID-19 vaccine. As a result, the Virginia Department of Health has directed all local health districts, including the Chickahominy Health District, to close their pre-registration forms and surveys at 5 p.m. on Friday, February 12, and replace them at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, February 16 with a link to the new statewide system at vaccinate.virginia.gov. In the interim, existing waiting lists will be imported to the new system and pre-registration will be temporarily unavailable throughout Virginia.
All individuals who have previously filled out a survey or form or signed up for a waitlist to be vaccinated through their local health district will be automatically imported into the new statewide system. Individuals will maintain their current status in the queue, and will be able to search that they are in the new system starting Tuesday morning.
At this time those who are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine under Phase 1a and Phase 1b can complete the Statewide Vaccine Pre-Registration System starting on Tuesday, February 16th. If you previously completed the Virginia Department of Health’s “When Can I Get Vaccinated” online tool, then there is no need to register again.
The health departments vaccine supply is currently limited, and they are doing their best to serve you and your loved ones. After you register and vaccine is available, someone from the health department will contact you to schedule your vaccination appointment once it is your turn.
