The Virginia Department of Health has launched a new, centralized website that allows Virginians to easily pre-register for the COVID-19 vaccine. This ‘one-stop-shop’ website allows individuals to pre-register online, check that they are pre-registered, and access additional information on Virginia’s vaccination roll-out. You may reach the registration site here: https://vaccinate.virginia.gov/
Please remember that this registration is not an appointment. Receiving an actual appointment may take months, however registering is the first step. Once you register you will be contacted when an appointment becomes available.
Virginians who have previously pre-registered through their local health district have been automatically imported into the new system and do not need to pre-register again. Everyone who has previously registered is still on the list, and their status will not be affected.
The Virginia Department of Health expects millions of unique visits to the site. Anyone who cannot get through immediately should try again.
Other Ways to register for an appointment:
CVS Pharmacy: Due to technological limits with CVS Pharmacy’s national appointment system, Virginians must continue to register for CVS appointments through the CVS Pharmacy website. More information may be found at:https://www.cvs.com/immunizations/covid-19-vaccine
Fairfax County Residents: The Fairfax Health Department has opted to maintain their local registration form as one of the few health districts not part of the Virginia state health system. Virginians eligible for vaccination based on living or working in Fairfax County should pre-register for vaccinations on the Fairfax County site using the link below: https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/health/novel-coronavirus/vaccine/registration.
