This is an update from the Virginia Department of Health about the status of COVID-19 vaccinations in Virginia. The available supply of vaccine is still very limited around the country, and we know the wait has been frustrating


The good news is that state and local public health officials and many partners have been working tirelessly to get vaccines to as many people as possible, as quickly as possible:


  • More than 1.4 million doses have already been administered by Virginia, including nearly 95% of the first doses available to the state. You can track Virginia's progress on the Vaccine Dashboards. 
  • Virginia ranks 12th among all states for percent of the population that has received at least one dose, and 9th among all states for percent of available doses administered, according to CDC data presented by the New York Times. 

Today, we launched a new statewide vaccine pre-registration system, to make it easier for people to sign up for a free COVID-19 vaccination. If you are receiving this email, you have been transferred automatically to the new statewide system and you do not need to do anything at this time. You will maintain your current status, and can confirm that you are in the new system at any time, at vaccinate.virginia.gov


The country still needs more vaccine supply to be able to get shots in the arms of everyone who wants them. Unfortunately, it may take weeks or months before everyone currently on waitlists is able to make an appointment. Although the complexities of vaccine distribution do not make it possible to give an estimated appointment date, we will send you regular reminders that you are still on the pre-registration list.

 

When your appointment becomes available, there will be no charge. State and local agencies will never call, email or text you to ask for your social security number or immigration status in connection with vaccination.

Esta es una actualización del Departamento de Salud de Virginia sobre las vacunas del COVID-19. El suministro disponible de vacunas todavía es muy limitado en todo el país, y sabemos que la espera ha sido frustrante. 

La buena noticia es que los funcionarios de salud pública estatales y locales, así como muchos socios, han estado trabajando incansablemente para que las vacunas lleguen a la mayor cantidad de personas, lo más rápido posible: 

  • Virginia ya ha administrado más de 1.4 millones de vacunas, incluido casi el 95% de las primeras dosis disponibles en el estado. Puedes dar seguimiento del progreso en: Vaccine Dashboards. 
  • Virginia ocupa el lugar número 12 entre todos los estados, por porcentaje de población, que ha recibido al menos una dosis, y el 9º en porcentaje de dosis disponibles administradas, según los datos de los CDC presentados por elNew York Times

Hoy lanzamos un nuevo sistema de preinscripción de vacunas en todo el estado, para hacer más fácil que las personas se inscriban para recibir la vacuna gratuita del COVID-19. Si estás recibiendo este correo electrónico, es porque fuiste transferido automáticamente al nuevo sistema estatal, y no necesitas hacer nada en este momento. Mantendrás tu estado actual, y en cualquier momento podrás confirmar que estás en el nuevo sistema, en vaccinate.virginia.gov. 

El país aún necesita más suministro de vacunas para poder inyectarlas en los brazos de todos los que las deseen. Desafortunadamente, pueden pasar semanas o meses antes de que todas las personas que están actualmente en listas de espera, puedan programar su cita. Aunque lo complejo de la distribución de las vacunas no permite dar una fecha estimada de la cita, te enviaremos recordatorios regularmente, diciéndote que todavía estás en la lista de preinscripción. 

Cuando tu cita esté disponible, no habrá ningún cargo. En relación con la vacunación, las agencias estatales y locales nunca te llamarán, enviarán correos electrónicos o enviarán mensajes de texto para solicitar tu número de seguro social o estado migratorio. Para obtener información adicional, incluyendo preguntas frecuentes y detalles sobre la elegibilidad para la vacuna, visita www.vdh.virginia.gov/covid-19-vaccine/ o https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines.
