COVID-19 Vaccine Information
Sentara Healthcare is currently administering our supply of COVID-19 vaccines to healthcare personnel defined in Virginia's Phase 1a and a limited number to patients and community members eligible in Phase 1b. This vaccination plan follows guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Virginia Department of Health and North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services.
Sentara Medical Group (SMG) community clinics are vaccinating a limited number of eligible Phase 1b patients in Virginia including SMG patients who are 75 years and older, starting with those who have an SMG primary care provider, and non-SMG community members eligible for Phase 1b with a strong emphasis on underserved communities and vulnerable populations in the appropriate phase group.
Eligible patients and community members are being contacted directly to schedule an appointment. We will contact patients via their Sentara MyChart account, by phone or by email when they are able to schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment. We are using a phased approach and will expand our clinics depending on vaccine supply.
We appreciate your patience and continued cooperation as we work with our state departments of health to ensure everyone interested in receiving a COVID-19 vaccine will have access to one. We ask that you please do not call to ask about the timing of your vaccination. We thank you for your patience.
