How to register
On Feb. 16, Virginia launched a statewide vaccine pre-registration system at vaccinate.virginia.gov. This is a centralized website for all state residents to pre-register for vaccines.
A statewide call center to help residents register for a vaccine and to answer questions has also been created, and can be reached at 877-275-8343. It will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. Spanish-speaking representatives will be available along with English speakers.
The Fauquier County government established a hotline for county residents to sign up for a vaccine and ask questions about the vaccine rollout. The call center can be reached at 540-422-0111, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays. Questions can also be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additionally, the Fauquier County Department of Social Services can assist county residents aged 75 years old or older with registration. The phone number is 540-422-8400.
Residents 65 years old and older may visit here or call 800-746-7287 to register for a vaccine through CVS Pharmacy.
Phase 1b vaccine survey for front-line workers
Business owners or managers who employ workers directly involved in public-facing, face-to-face interactions in the Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District may complete a survey at rrhd.org to be placed on the list of employers requesting COVID-19 vaccinations for their staff.
