Our mission is to attain optimal health for the people of our community through disease prevention, environmental safeguards and health promotion.
RRHD has begun COVID-19 vaccine efforts following Virginia’s COVID-19 Vaccination priorities.
As of 1/15/2021, the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District has given over 2,000 vaccines to Phase 1a and Phase 1b recipients at a central location in the district through an appointment system. We will be transitioning to a larger venue next week to be able to increase our throughput, however vaccine availability from the state remains a limiting factor for distribution.
Our community has been very responsive to the survey tool we posted and thus we will need to press pause on the survey for now so that we can work through the many Phase 1a and 1b contacts we currently have. We are busy working on the logistics of this process. As Governor Northam said, we ask everyone to be patient as we work out the details to implement this change. It will take time to pivot to this new environment. We are working closely with all our localities as well as hospitals, private providers, and pharmacies to increase vaccine availability as soon as we possibly can. Currently we ask people to go to rrhd.org for information and updates as our community vaccination distribution plan evolves. Please understand that our phones are swamped at this time. Stay tuned to the website or our Facebook page for details as more vaccine becomes available. The process may change in the very near future, so check back frequently.
And remember to keep doing those things that will keep us all safe during this time. Watch your distance, wear a mask, wash your hands, and wait to return back to work if you are sick.
