COVID-19 VACCINE WAITLIST: Updated 1/22/21
**The Jefferson County Health Department will no longer be adding names to our waitlist.**
On Monday, January 25th the State will have a Statewide registration system for individuals 65 years of age and older wanting to be vaccinated. County waitlists will be uploaded into that system and will take priority over new registrants. The State has asked counties to stop adding names to their waitlists.
In order to register through the new State Vaccine Registration Web Site go to www.vaccinate.wv.gov or call the Vaccine Hotline Number at 833-734-0965. The hotline hours are Monday through Friday 8:00 am to 6:00 pm and Saturday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Vaccine Registration will not go live until 8:00 am Monday morning (1/25/21).
We do not know when vaccines will be available for other age groups or for people with underlying conditions.
Updated Monday-Friday by 4:00 PM. Most recent update 01/22/2021.
COVID-19 is a disease caused by a respiratory virus (SARS-CoV-2) first identified in China in December 2019. COVID-19 is a new virus that hasn’t caused illness in humans before. It has since spread rapidly to countries worldwide, including the United States. This situation poses a serious public health risk. West Virginians at the state, private sector, community, and family level are working to reduce COVID-19’s effect on both our state’s health and its economy.
COVID-19 can cause mild to severe illness. Some people have little to no symptoms; many have mild disease, but can spread it to others. Severe illness typically, though not always, occurs in older adults or in those with chronic diseases. Social distancing and other community mitigation measures are one of our most powerful tools to reduce spread and protect each other, our families, and our communities.
