The county says unfortunately, the Virginia Department of Health was notified Friday, that their order for more vaccines from the federal government would not be filled at this time.  

In addition, the health district and other community vaccination sites were reportedly notified that their order of vaccines for the upcoming week will not be completely filled. The county called this extremely disappointing and concerning for everyone involved.

Even so, we spoke with an assistant living coordinator who believes the county is still on track and she’s set to receive her COVID-19 vaccine tomorrow.

The county says if you meet the criteria to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, you will be added to the waitlist and contacted in the order in which you signed up once appointments become available.

Right now, they’re booked through mid-February.
