Virginia Hits Vaccination Goal Ahead of Schedule

Governor Northam announced today 70% of adults in Virginia have now received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, two weeks ahead of President Biden’s nationwide goal.

If you still need a vaccination head over to Vaccinate Virginia or search vaccines.gov, text your ZIP code to 438829, or call 1-800-232-0233 to find locations near you.

Although fewer children have been infected with COVID-19 compared to adults, children can:

  • Be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19
  • Get sick from COVID-19
  • Spread COVID-19 to others.

CDC recommends everyone 12 years and older should get a COVID-19 vaccination to help protect against COVID-19. Widespread vaccination is a critical tool to help stop the pandemic. Getting your child or teen vaccinated can bring you one step closer to enjoying the activities you miss. Children 12 years and older are able to get the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine.
