COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Statewide Vaccine Pre-Registration System:

To pre-register for the COVID-19 vaccine, please visit or call the Virginia COVID-19 Vaccine Information Center at 1-877-VAX-IN-VA (1-877-829-4682). All Virginians are encouraged to pre-register for the vaccine.
Note: All individuals who have previously filled out a survey or form or signed up for a waitlist to be vaccinated through their local health district will be automatically imported into the new statewide system. Individuals will maintain their current status in the queue, and will be able to search that they are in the new system. Visit to see if you are pre-registered. 

Where We Are:

The Central Shenandoah Health District moved into the Phase 1b on Monday, January 18th. We are continuing to provide COVID-19 vaccinations to individuals in Phase 1a. CSHD is also distributing the COVID-19 vaccine in partnership with healthcare providers in our area. If you are interested in receiving information about the vaccine and when it will be available to you, please sign up for our COVID-19 Vaccine Newsletter.

As vaccine supplies increase over the coming months, we anticipate hosting large open clinics to meet the vaccine needs of the population as a whole.  At this time, we have limited supplies of vaccines that should be aimed at our most vulnerable populations and essential workers as outlined in Phase 1a and 1b guidance.

Please be patient as we work to provide the COVID-19 vaccine to our community. We expect to be vaccinating individuals in Phase 1b into the spring time. It is our goal to have more vaccine clinics available to persons in Phase 1b as we move forward the next few weeks. This will depend on an increase of vaccine supply to the Commonwealth of Virginia and, subsequently, and increase locally to the Central Shenandoah Health District and our healthcare partners.

Scheduling Your Second Dose:

If you received your 1st dose at a CHSD clinic, there are three ways to schedule your 2nd dose appointment:

  • At your 1st dose clinic, there will be a QR code for your to scan with your smartphone and schedule your 2nd dose appointment.
  • If you don’t schedule your 2nd dose appointment at your 1st dose clinic, you will receive an email with registration information.
  • If you don’t have email or are unable to schedule online, you will receive a phone call from our health department staff and they will help schedule you for your 2nd dose appointment.

At this point, all first doses of vaccine received in CSHD have matched second doses available.

If you received your initial dose outside of CSHD; you will need to return to your original location for the second dose.

If you received your initial COVID-19 vaccine dose through CSHD and need assistance scheduling or rescheduling your second dose, please email Please use the subject line “2nd dose needed” and provide us with the date and location of your first dose in the email.
