HAMPTON ROADS, Va. (WAVY) — Teachers and employees across the Peninsula school systems are receiving their COVID-19 vaccination.

City managers and county administrators from Williamsburg, James City County, York County, Newport News, Hampton, and Poquoson recently issued a joint statement, announcing they had established three vaccination clinics to serve residents in the region.

The clinics are the Colonial Williamsburg Visitor Center for the City of Williamsburg and James City County; Hampton Roads Convention Center for the City of Hampton and the City of Poquoson; Christopher Newport University for the City of Newport News and York County.

Newport News Schools announced Friday that employees were able to receive their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine earlier in the week.

The school system is just one among a handful in Hampton Roads moving forward with administering the vaccine to those who fall in Phase 1b.

Hampton City Schools wrapped up day four and the second week of successful COVID-19 vaccine clinics Friday.

About 400 teachers and staff took advantage of the snow day in York County Thursday to get their COVID-19 vaccination.

Outside of the Peninsula, more than 600 Accomack and Northampton County teachers and staff and Broadwater Academy got vaccinated Friday at Nandua High School via Riverside Health.
