Latest vaccine update:
Pittsylvania-Danville and Southside Health Districts (PDSSHD) have entered vaccination Phase 1b. We are working hard to vaccinate residents as quickly as possible. An exact timeline for the remaining phases is uncertain.
Those eligible to receive vaccine in Phase1b include: police, fire rescue, teachers, mail carriers, other essential workers whose jobs ensure continuity of government operations, those age 65 or older, and those 16-64 with a documented medical condition putting them at risk of severe infection.
Those eligible in Phase 1b may pre-register to receive a call when it is their turn to be vaccinated. Be advised – there may be a significant wait time until the supply of vaccine increases. Many community partners are working together to create multiple points of access to receive vaccination.
Our health districts, along with the rest of the state, is seeing much higher demand for the vaccine than the doses the commonwealth is receiving from the federal government.
It is important to remain vigilant in COVID-19 prevention. Continue to protect yourself and others: wear a mask, wash your hands, stay at least six feet away from others, and avoid gatherings with anyone who is not a member of your household.
