Mount Rogers Health District to begin vaccinating Phase 1c workers March 29
The Mount Rogers Health District in Southwest Virginia is set to move into Phase 1c of Virginia’s COVID-19 vaccine rollout plan.
District officials announced Thursday they will move to Phase 1c Monday, March 29, and they ask all eligible individuals in this group to pre-register beginning this week so they can be contacted quickly for appointments.
A list of eligible essential workers in Phase 1c includes the following: energy; water, wastewater, and waste removal (includes recycling removal); housing and construction; food service; transportation and logistics; institutions of higher education faculty/staff; finance; information technology and communication; media; legal services; public safety (engineers); other public health workers.
“Phase 1c essential workers should make sure to select the appropriate essential worker category when signing up online so they are contacted for an appointment,” said Dr. Karen Shelton, health director. “We will continue to offer appointments to eligible individuals in Phase 1a and Phase 1b who have not yet been vaccinated.”
