Western Tidewater Health District is using the Pre-Registration to book appointments.  Please follow your email closely, you will receive an email from VAMS/CDC.

The Western Tidewater Health District (WTHD) which covers the cities of Franklin & Suffolk and the counties of Isle of Wight & Southampton entered Phase 2 on Monday, April 12, 2021.  If you are a current resident or work in the WTHD, we encourage you to complete one of the following options: 

Options for Pre-Registering:

Option 1: Click on vaccinate.virginia.gov  to complete the information. You may just enter N/A for the email and enter a phone number if you do not have an active email address. After completion, individuals will receive follow up communication to register for an appointment as soon as additional slots become available.  Family members are encouraged to assist those with limited or no computer resources. This form will be the fastest way to get an appointment, but the timeline for an appointment is to be determined (TBD).

Option 2: Residents with limited or no technical resources (computer or internet access) may call 1-877-VAX-IN-VA by phone 8am-8pm 7 days a week.

Please note: These options DO NOT RESERVE A VACCINE OR CREATE AN APPOINTMENT; they collect contact information, so that when vaccine is available, VDH can contact you to schedule an appointment.

ONCE YOU ARE PRE-REGISTERED, PLEASE DO NOT CALL OR EMAIL TO CHECK YOUR STATUS. You will be contacted as soon as possible to schedule an appointment. Please do not pre-register multiple times or leave multiple messages. Doing so will only cause delays or prevent others from getting a vaccine.
