The COVID-19 vaccine is being distributed across the state. You may be wondering, “When will I be able to vaccinate myself and my family?”

The Virginia Department of Health and medical experts from across the state participated in a virtual town hall on Wednesday, Feb. 10 hosted by 8News anchor Juan Conde. It was carried live on WAVY News 10 and from 7 p.m. until 8 p.m., followed by an extended online discussion until 8:30 p.m.

The panelists provided answers to and direction on Virginia’s COVID-19 vaccine, distribution, myths and misinformation, registration response, guidance on health care, financial, educational and outreach resources.
