Hampton Health District distributes COVID-19 vaccines

AS OF 4/14/2021 THE HAMPTON HEALTH DISTRICT’S CURRENT PHASE: 2

Across the Peninsula, your local health district is working hard to distribute the COVID-19 vaccines in an equitable and timely fashion. If you have questions about the safety, efficacy, or timing of the vaccines, please contact the health district in which you work. Whether you work in Hampton, Newport News, Williamsburg, James City County, Poquoson, or York County, we can connect you to the resources you need to make an informed decision about vaccination. Get updated on the vaccine:

Due to the FDA and CDC Joint Statement, VDH has determined to postpone all J&J clinics at this time. Safety is our top priority, and until guidance has been changed, we will no longer be offering J&J at our clinics.

2nd Dose Appointments: A link is sent out via email to everyone who came through our clinic for 1st doses 1-2 days prior to their 2nd dose clinic day. If you do not have an email, or the email was incorrect and sent back to us, you will receive a call. Please answer your phone. We are striving to hit that 28 day mark, but it may not be 28 days exactly. The CDC has stated that the efficacy of the Moderna vaccine is still viable up to 42 days, if necessary. This means the date we write on our patients’ cards is the date in which you become eligible to receive your 2nd dose, not necessarily your 2nd dose clinic date. With vaccine allotment being limited, and inclement weather determining the receipt of the vaccine, a patient’s 2nd dose vaccine clinic may be scheduled after the 28 day period. We have each patient’s identifying information so no one should slip through the cracks. If you have not received an email or a phone call from us, and it is well before the 42 day mark, your 2nd dose clinic has yet to be scheduled.
