Residents Encouraged to Update their Pre-Registration Records for the COVID-19 Vaccine

Vaccinate Virginia is encouraging all residents to verify and update their pre-registration records now by visiting or calling 877-VAX-IN-VA, because the form includes additional questions that were not available on previous forms. If a record is missing important information, vaccination appointments may be delayed.

People who have already been vaccinated should still update their records, because it will help match them to the immunization database to prevent them from receiving weekly reminders. Verifying information and updating records will not change pre-registration dates or reference codes.

The statewide vaccine pre-registration system has received more than 8 million views and more than 1 million pre-registrations since its launch on February 15. Including individuals who pre-registered through local health districts in the past, the new system now includes more than 2.2 million people who live and work in Virginia.

All individuals who have previously filled out a survey or form or signed up for a waitlist to be vaccinated through their local health district have been automatically imported into the new statewide system and do not need to pre-register again. Anyone with questions should call 877-VAX-IN-VA rather than their local health district.
Take the Phase 3 Virginia Commuter Survey  

The Virginia Department of Transportation in partnership with the Department of Rail and Public Transportation is collecting data associated with travel to and from work in response to COVID-19 in Virginia. The organizations are encouraging public input.
