After numerous health districts in Virginia moved to phase 1b of coronavirus vaccinations this week, more residents will be eligible in this phase, Gov. Ralph Northam announced Thursday.
According to patch.com, “The expanded eligibility will allow anyone aged 65 and older as well as ages 16 to 64 with a high-risk medical condition to get vaccinations. The list of medical conditions is listed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Residents should look to their health departments for guidance on how vaccinations are carried out in their localities.”
As per patch.com, “People aged 65 and up and people aged 16 to 64 with a high-risk medical condition were previously placed in phase 1c while people ages 75 and up fall within the current phase 1b. A start date has not been determined for phase 1c, but all Virginia health districts will be in phase 1b by the end of January.”
