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.
