Seniors can now call 804-205-3501 to schedule a COVID-19 vaccination appointment

Seniors ages 65 and older who live in Richmond City or Henrico County no longer have to wait for an email or phone call to schedule a COVID-19 vaccination appointment. Seniors can now call the Richmond and Henrico Health Districts’ COVID-19 hotline (804-205-3501) M-F, 8 am-5 pm to schedule an appointment directly. (Only for people ages 65+)


Because there will be a limited supply while production increases, the vaccine will be distributed based on a phased system that prioritizes individuals by risk. Overlap of vaccination of groups is expected to ensure people are vaccinated as quickly and efficiently as possible.

The CDC has made recommendations about the next groups of people who should receive vaccinations, and VDH will ensure the vaccines are distributed to those people regardless of where they live in Virginia.


Vaccine Contact Info for Surrounding Health Districts

Here is the contact info for each of the surrounding health districts. Call Centers will have the most up-to-date info on their district’s vaccine process but may have trouble taking calls as there is a high call volume right now. There will also be a delay in responses to these inquiries, as thousands of people continue to submit them, but we are working hard to reach everyone and will be contacting anyone that completes the survey at some point.
