Feb. 11, 2021

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) Chesterfield Health District announced today that it will confirm the COVID-19 vaccine pre-registration status of those who submitted their information via the state’s When Can I Get Vaccinated tool, the COVID-19 Vaccine Inquiry Google Form or the VDH Chesterfield Health District Call Center (804-318-8207). Chesterfield County Government is assisting the VDH Chesterfield Health District with the management of related data organization.

Those who submitted their pre-registration information for the waitlist will be contacted by VDH in one of two ways:

  1. By email: On behalf of the VDH Chesterfield Health District, Chesterfield County Government will send a confirmation email to those whose data has been successfully collected. Though it may take weeks or months for VDH to contact individuals on the waitlist to schedule a COVID-19 vaccination appointment, those who receive this confirmation email have been successfully added to the COVID-19 vaccination waitlist.
  2. By phone: Those who submitted information without an email address will receive a pre-recorded phone message from VDH Chesterfield Health District Director Dr. Alexander Samuel. This phone call, sent by Chesterfield County Government on behalf of the VDH Chesterfield Health District, will be left as a voicemail if the call goes unanswered. Though it may take weeks or months for VDH to contact individuals on the waitlist to schedule a COVID-19 vaccination appointment, those who receive this confirmation phone message have been successfully added to the COVID-19 vaccination waitlist.

Those who believe they have submitted their information via the When Can I Get Vaccinated tool, the COVID-19 Vaccine Inquiry Google Form or the VDH Chesterfield Health District Call Center (804-318-8207) but do not receive either the email or phone message described above by Friday, Feb. 19, may complete their waitlist pre-registration by visiting vaccinate.virginia.gov.

How to Pre-Register for the COVID-19 Vaccination Waitlist
Those who have not yet submitted their information may pre-register for the COVID-19 vaccination waitlist by:

Federal Retail Pharmacy Program COVID-19 Vaccination Appointments
In addition to the VDH COVID-19 vaccination waitlist, other options to receive the COVID-19 vaccine are now becoming available through the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program, which is currently accessible at CVS and Walgreens locations in Virginia. All Virginians are encouraged to receive the COVID-19 vaccine however possible. However, residents should note that their VDH waitlist information does not transfer to the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program. To schedule an appointment at a CVS or Walgreens location, follow the directions available on the CVS COVID-19 Vaccine page and the Walgreens COVID-19 Vaccine page.

Avoiding COVID-19 Vaccination Scams
As COVID-19 vaccination distribution continues nationwide, the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is cautioning against a rise in vaccine-related scams. According to the OIG (PDF), some signs of such scams include:

  • Being asked to pay out of pocket to get the vaccine
  • Being asked to pay to put your name on a vaccine waiting list or receive early access

For additional signs of potential scams as well as how to report suspected COVID-19-related fraud, visit www.oig.hhs.gov/coronavirus.
