STAUNTON, Va. (WHSV) - The Central Shenandoah Health District is doing what it can to move on to the next phases of the COVID-19 vaccination efforts.

“We will post all extra appointments on our website at 12:00 p.m. the day before a clinic. Please review the specific clinic eligibility requirements before you register for an appointment. If you do not meet the specific clinic eligibility requirements, your appointment will be canceled,” the latest update from the district states.

The district moved to all essential workers in Phase 1b on March 15. District leaders said they may be in this phase for several weeks.

“We still are not getting the full amount that we are asking for so as vaccine supplies increase, I think we will be able to move into phase 1C faster,” Laura Lee Wight with CSHD said.

There are more than a million people fully vaccinated in the state of Virginia. According to Wight, CSHD has given out 38,000 vaccines.

“When we move to Phase 1c that doesn’t mean that we have finished vaccinating everyone in Phase 1a and 1b, so something to keep in mind is that there are going to be multiple simultaneous vaccination priorities at the same time,” Wight explained.

Wight said it is still very important to pre-register for your vaccine as those who are pre-registered are given priority.
