NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — If you weren’t aware that Norfolk had moved into phase 2 of COVID-19 vaccinations over the weekend, odds are you do now.
The city sent out a public safety alert to phones on Monday morning, which startled a few people.
“I nearly jumped out of my skin when that went out,” said one WAVY viewer.
The Norfolk health department officially moved to phase 2 (vaccines for the general public) on Sunday after switching to phase 1c on Friday.
Anyone who wants a vaccine is asked to pre-register at vaccinate.virginia.gov or call 1-877-VAX-IN-VA (877-829-4682). You’ll then be sent a message to select a vaccine appointment when they’re available.
FEMA just recently opened up a mass vaccination site at Military Circle Mall, where about 3,000 people from across the region are being vaccinated each day.
