HOT SPRINGS — Because there is not sufficient supply at this time to vaccinate everyone in Phase 1b at the same time, Bath Community Hospital in partnership with Bath County and the Central Shenandoah Health District, is currently vaccinating the top three essential workers priority groups within Phase 1b, and anyone over the age of 65.
The top three groups include the following:
• Police, fire and Hazmat;
• Corrections and homeless shelter workers;
• Childcare/Pre-K-12 teachers/staff (public and private), plus anyone over the age of 65.
To sign up for the COVID-19 vaccine wait list, visit https://www.vdh.virginia.gov/central-shenandoah/ covid-19-vaccine-information/ or call the Bath County COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline at (540)?839-3042.
You will be added to a waitlist and notified once an appointment for an upcoming clinic is open and you are eligible.
Currently, health officials ask that persons in the Central Shenandoah Health District consider the limited supply of vaccines and the priority groups that need the vaccine the most urgently.
For the most up-to-date information about local COVID-19 vaccine distribution, please visit the Central Shenandoah Health District website at https://www.vdh.virginia.gov/central-shenandoah/ covid-19-vaccine-information/.
