Health district surveys health care, essential workers and people 75+ on vaccine needs
The following information was provided by Blue Ridge Health District:
 
This week, Blue Ridge Health District (BRHD) launched a new COVID-19 vaccination clinic site at the former Kmart parking lot in Charlottesville for Phase 1A eligible frontline health care workers. In early spring, frontline essential workers and people 75 or older will be in line for vaccines.
 
Vaccination clinics will be expanded throughout the health district next week for these critical health care workers. At this time, all vaccinations are by appointment only for Phase 1A individuals. Read below for more information about upcoming vaccine phases, including new surveys for Phase 1B, which will include frontline essential workers.
 
BRHD is working on plans for Phase 1B and then will have surveys and information available for individuals who fall within Phase 1C. 
 
On Wednesday, Governor Ralph Northam identified which essential workers will be receiving the vaccine in Phase 1B and Phase 1C. Phase 1B is anticipated to launch in early spring and includes frontline essential workers, such as K-12 teachers and staff, grocery store workers, migrant farmworkers, corrections facility employees and people who are incarcerated, and those working or living in homeless shelters. Additionally, people over the age of 75 will be vaccinated in this stage.
 
Phase 1C, which is expected to launch in late spring, encompasses other essential workers, those age 65 and up, and anyone 16-65 with underlying medical conditions.
