Virginia April 2 COVID-19 update: Nearly 4 million vaccine shots administered in Va., 1,538 new cases reported

COVID-19 Vaccine

PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — Virginia is getting ready to hit 4 million total administered vaccine doses as health districts in Hampton Roads and across the commonwealth open up eligibility to phase 1c and the general public.

As of Friday, VDH data shows 3,957,289 total doses have been administered, and 16.6% of people are fully vaccinated. 30.9% of Virginians have at least one dose.

COVID-19 metrics again have stagnated recently, with a slight trend up in cases and hospitalizations, but those should trend back down as the general population starts to get shots. Some in the general public have already gotten invites and more are coming soon, like this Sunday for Norfolk residents and Monday for the Eastern Shore.

Gov. Northam said every Virginian 16 and older will be eligible for their shot by April 18, with many before that.
