Coronavirus

PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — Virginia is nearing 5 million total administered COVID-19 vaccine doses here in mid-April, though cases are still remaining relatively high.

Most of the new cases are in younger people however and deaths are down significantly. Hospitalizations still remain relatively high (above 1,000 current patients). Virginia health officials said restrictions could still be lifted further even if cases remain relatively high, because they’re focusing on hospitalizations and deaths.

Nearly all of the state is now in phase 2 (general public vaccinations) and the whole state will be there by April 18. For more on the vaccinations and updates on the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, click here.
