The Blue Ridge Health District (BRHD) is vaccinating everyone in Phase 1 and Phase 2. All Virginians 16+ are now eligible to schedule a vaccine appointment. Virginia’s goal is for all adults to have at least one COVID-19 vaccine by end of May.
Click here to schedule a vaccination appointment at any of our BRHD sites. You may use this link for either first or second doses.
After completing the form, which determines your age and location, you will be sent a link from cdc.gov to register in the VAMS system. You may then choose your appointment time at your desired location.
NOTE: We recommend you choose SMS as your preferred method of contact as it greatly expedites the receipt of the registration link to VAMS. Email preferences can take up to an hour to be received.
If you have any issues scheduling your appointment, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “VAMS LINK APPT” and we will assist you.
