Chesterfield Health District Will Expand COVID-19 Vaccination to Phase 1c
Pre-registration at Vaccinate.Virginia.gov (877-829-4682) still required

Effective Thursday, April 1, the Virginia Department of Health’s (VDH) Chesterfield Health District (CHD) will move into Phase 1c COVID-19 vaccinations. VDH CHD will continue to prioritize vaccination for anyone in Phases 1a and 1b who registers to receive the vaccine. Overlap of vaccination of phases may occur to ensure individuals in each phase are vaccinated as quickly and efficiently as possible.

While Phase 1b opened vaccination eligibility to frontline essential workers in prioritized industries, Phase 1c further expands vaccination to other essential workers. Phase 1c includes those from the following industries: energy; water, wastewater and waste removal (includes recycling removal); housing and construction; food service; transportation and logistics; institutions of higher education (faculty and staff only); finance; information technology and communication; media; legal services; public safety (including engineers); other public health workers; and barbers, stylists and hairdressers.

View additional phase information on the VDH COVID-19 Vaccination Response webpage.

All individuals interested in receiving a COVID-19 vaccination should pre-register at vaccinate.virginia.gov or by calling 1-877-VAX-IN-VA (877-829-4682).

When you receive your appointment for a COVID-19 vaccine, please follow these guidelines at the vaccination site:

  • Appointments are required at all locations for COVID-19 vaccination in our area. Walk-ins will not be accepted. Please pre-register to be contacted for an appointment.
  • Please plan to arrive no earlier than 10 minutes prior to your appointment time.
  • Please wear vaccine ready clothing that allows easy access to your upper arm.

It is important to remain vigilant in COVID-19 prevention. Continue to protect yourself and others: cover your mouth and nose with a mask, wash your hands often, stay at least six feet away from others and avoid gatherings with anyone who is not a member of your household.
