Anyone over the age of 5 can receive a covid-19 vaccine. The VDH has created a tool that will help you search your area for available vaccine appointments online or you can call the call center. The call center can help you schedule an appointment, or answer questions you might have. They are available Monday through Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. to take your call. Assistance is available in English, Spanish, and more than 100 additional languages. Video assistance in American Sign Language is available by clicking the "ASL NOW" on their website.
Works with pharmacies and local health organizations to help schedule free covid-19 vaccines for anyone over the age of 5 that wants one.
Who should take a test and when?
Where can I find a test?
You can still use in-person diagnostic COVID-19 testing sites. These may include your doctor’s office, a pharmacy or health clinic, or an urgent care center. At-home diagnostic tests can be purchased over the counter, online, at a local pharmacy, or from a big-box store.
