ONANCOCK, Va. (WAVY) — The Eastern Shore Health District is opening up COVID-19 vaccinations to the general public next Monday.

“We have vaccinated the vast majority of our Phase 1 population who have expressed interest in getting the vaccine. We are excited to be able to open vaccine eligibility to our entire Shore community” said Chief Operating Officer Jon Richardson with the health district.

Those in the general population (phase 2) who want a vaccine are asked to contact your primary care provider or Eastern Shore Rural Health to schedule a vaccine. Those who were in phase 1 who haven’t gotten their vaccine are encouraged to call 757-787-5880 to set up an appointment.

Supply still remains limited however, the health department says.
