All Phase 1a & 1b individuals in Goochland are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccines. Residents who are interested in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine need to pre-register through the Virginia Department of Health’s (VDH) Vaccinate Virginia system.

VDH's Vaccinate Virginia Pre-Registration System

VDH Vaccinate Virginia Sign Up

Individuals can easily pre-register via Vaccinate Virginia on-line or over the phone using the resources listed below. Those individuals who have previously pre-registered are encouraged to verify and update their pre-registration info in Vaccinate Virginia; this can be done on-line or over the phone.

VDH launched the Vaccinate Virginia centralized website (https://vaccinate.virginia.gov/) and call center to allow Virginians to easily pre-register for the COVID-19 vaccine.  This ‘one-stop-shop’ website allows individuals to easily pre-register online, verify and update pre-registration info, and access additional information on Virginia’s vaccination roll-out.

To access the centralized website, visit https://vaccinate.virginia.gov/, to talk to someone in-person or to receive assistance in signing up for a FREE COVID-19 vaccine please call (877) VAX-IN-VA or (877) 829-4682.  In addition to Vaccinate Virginia, Goochland residents can easily pre-register for the FREE COVID-19 vaccine via the Chickahominy Health District Call Center and Goochland County’s 65+ COVID Hotline listed below.

Vaccinate Virginia - Verify and Update Information - English

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 have been automatically imported into the Vaccinate Virginia statewide system. These individuals should verify their information and update their record now by visiting https://vaccinate.virginia.gov/ or calling (877) VAX-IN-VA, because VDH has added additional questions to the pre-registration form.
