LENOWISCO Health District COVID19 Vaccines

The LENWISCO Health District has announced that we can expect the first COVID19 vaccines in Virginia next week. These first 146,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine are expected to be given to healthcare workers and residents of long-term care facilities first. Additional doses are expected to arrive in the early part of the coming year, and they will be distributed to the general populace, however the exact dates are not known at this time.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is recommending that these first vaccines go to healthcare workers and residents of long-term facilities as soon as possible. Virginians who do not fall into either of these categories will be offered the vaccine at a later date when it is more readily available. Children and pregnant adults will be offered vaccines only after the vaccine has been tested and approved for them.
