The following information about availability of the COVID-19 vaccine was provided by the Roanoke City and Alleghany Health District (VDH):
We know the demand is great and we at the Roanoke City and Alleghany Health Districts (RCAHD) are working with our vaccine providing partners (i.e., Carilion, Lewis Gale, some of our local pharmacies) to try to expand as many possibilities as we can to deliver vaccine. It’s going to take time and we have limited supply. It is good news that people are interested in receiving the vaccine, but we are not able to handle the volume of calls we are currently receiving. We believe we may have over 50,000 eligible recipients in Phase 1b, solely in the RCAHD area. Please be patient as we get these processes up and running.
If you are over 75 and can stay home and stay safe, please do.
What we ARE doing now:
We are overwhelmed with phone calls and inquiries, but the health of the public is a priority to us. We are thrilled by the huge numbers of people who have expressed that they are ready for the vaccine. Please be patient as we develop the framework to get everyone vaccine that wants one. And, in the meantime, nothing is more important than continuing to practice the 3 Ws: wash your hands, watch your distance and wear a mask. We expect to have more information about the enrollment process later this week or next week. Stay tuned to local news media where we will broadcast updates widely.
Sign up for more information on the VDH website or watch the Roanoke City and Alleghany Health District Facebook page and local media for more information.
