A couple changes have been made regarding who’s eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.
Virginia residents 65 years old and older and individuals who are at least 16 and have certain medical conditions may now receive the dose.
This includes those who are pregnant and have cancer, chronic kidney disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), down syndrome or various heart conditions.
More information about the medical conditions is available on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.
Individuals in these categories have been moved from Group C to Group B, Governor Ralph Northam said in a press conference on Thursday.
The Prince William Health District (PWHD) was among 11 health districts that started providing the COVID-19 vaccine to Group B members this week.
Adults 65 and up and those with eligible conditions may fill out an online survey, which will help the PWHD get in contact with them.
After completing the survey, participants are expected to receive an email that explains how they can make an appointment. An email address must be provided.
