Albemarle Regional Health Services and its county partners have announced the schedule for drive-thru COVID-19 vaccination clinics for this week.
Vaccine clinics will have set hours and set vaccine doses available, and will be provided on a first come, first served basis.
While we are still targeting groups one and two, we are moving to priority group three, essential workers, per the Governor’s directive. The primary focus will be on childcare workers and teachers but other essential workers will also be able to receive the vaccine.
THE CURRENT PRIORITY GROUPS ARE:
- HEALTHCARE WORKERS (Group 1)
- INDIVIDUALS 65 and OLDER (Group 2)
- ESSENTIAL WORKERS (Group 3) with a primary focus on CHILDCARE PROVIDERS AND TEACHERS
We are asking that only individuals who live in the ARHS region AND meet these priority groups attend first dose clinics. Individuals who do not meet this requirement will be asked to leave and instructed to contact their local health department for vaccine information.
Please help us meet the needs of our community by adhering to this guidance and supporting our Public Health and Public Safety workforce as they work to vaccinate our communities.
If you received your first dose at one of our clinics, regardless of residence status, you will be able to receive your second dose as long as you have your vaccine card with you.
Please do not arrive early at sites. If you arrive prior to 8:30 am you may be asked to leave by law enforcement.
Second dose clinics are scheduled based on the first dose clinics offered. Additional clinics will be offered in the coming weeks. Based on CDC Guidance, there is no maximum interval between the first and second dose.
