Older adults, teachers, first responders and frontline essential workers in Prince William County are next in line to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
The Prince William Health District (PWHD) is starting to administer it to those who fall under Group B.
It is one of 11 health districts that are moving into this phase this week.
Doses are still being provided to members of Group A, which includes healthcare workers and residents of long-term care facilities, according to a release from the PWHD.
Adults who are at least 75 years old may complete an online survey that will enable the PWHD to reach out to them.
For now, those who would like to schedule an appointment must provide an email. However, the health district is partnering with other agencies so they can also be set up by anyone who can’t use email.
Frontline essential workers aren’t able to make an appointment yet. Officials will reach out to their employers, who will give employee names and emails. The employees will receive details about setting one up.
The PWHD is administering the Moderna vaccine. Community members must receive two doses of the same COVID-19 vaccine.
Its supply is based on the number of vaccines given to the Virginia Department of Health (VDH).
Beginning January 19, the health district will provide them at George Mason University (GMU), where officials can vaccinate more community members and practice social distancing measures.
Second doses are going to start being offered on January 25.
