COVID-19 & Vaccines


COVID-19 vaccination information

The Central Shenandoah Health District is leading the COVID vaccine efforts in our community. At their direction, Augusta Health is assisting CHSD in vaccinating healthcare workers, community members age 65 and above--and those in vulnerable populations as referred through their coordinating agencies. Each week, Augusta Health receives contact information from CSHD for those who have completed the survey form on the CSHD website. Call Center staff is reaching out to approximately 3,000 citizens each week and scheduling vaccination appointments as vaccine become available.

The need for vaccine still exceeds the amount of vaccine available from the state each week, so appointments are still required for vaccination. To put your name on the list to be contacted when vaccine is available, visit the Central Shenandoah Health District COVID-19 Vaccine Information page and follow instructions for those 65 years and older.

Protect yourself & others



TO HELP PREVENT THE SPREAD OF COVID-19, EVERYONE SHOULD:

  • Clean your hands often, either with soap and water for 20 seconds or a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Put distance between yourself and other people (at least 6 feet).
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces daily.
  • CDC recommends that people wear masks in public settings and when around people outside of their household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
  • Masks may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others.
