COVID-19 Vaccine Update

On Friday, the Central Shenandoah Health District (which includes Bridgewater, Harrisonburg, and Rockingham County) moved into “Phase 2” for COVID-19 vaccinations. This is nine days earlier than the statewide target of opening COVID-19 vaccinations to everyone aged 16 and older on April 18. Approximately 36% of Virginians have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, with about 20% of Virginians fully vaccinated.

So what does this mean?

Previous phases (1a, 1b, and 1c) were targeted for people that included front-line health care workers, individuals over the age of 65, and those with underlying health conditions. Phase 2 means that anyone over the age of 16 who wants a COVID-19 vaccine is eligible to get one.
