Vaccine Info

We continue to operate in partnership with the Central Shenandoah Health District (CSHD) to provide COVID-19 vaccinations for our community. Up to date information, will be posted on this site as it becomes available, so we encourage the community to visit daily to see what clinics are added. As eligibility criteria expand to include other classifications – such as geography, essential workers, and other age groups – definitions for related clinics will be provided alongside booking links. Please read the criteria descriptions carefully before booking to be sure you are registering for a clinic with criteria that match your circumstances.

The vaccine has been found to be safe and effective in people with various chronic conditions. This includes hypertension, diabetes, asthma, COPD, liver or kidney disease.

Can I get the vaccine if I have a cold?

If you have a runny nose or mild cold symptoms, you should be fine, however, if you have a more severe illness, you should check with your doctor or stay home until you’re well.
