Absolutely. The Peninsula Health District (PHD) continues to register individuals for the vaccine. However, beginning mid-February, a limited supply of the vaccine will be made available to select pharmacies and physician’s offices. The PHD registration is not being used for these other sites. You are encouraged to register for the vaccine at each verified location and to take the first appointment available.

From the VDH: If you were referred to the VDH hotline by Walmart or any pharmacy it was an error. The Vaccine Central Information Center (VCIC-the VDH Central call line) cannot assist with scheduling for the pharmacy sites. They must use the online sites set up by each pharmacy company. If you do not have internet access, you can call the VCIC 1-877-VAX- IN-VA (1-877-829-4682) An agent there will register them into the VDH database but cannot assist with registration for the pharmacy sites.
The statewide registration site allows everyone to register, regardless of age! Upon entering the portal, you will complete your name, date of birth, address, and best way to contact you (email or phone). You will then be asked a series of questions that will help the portal determine your vaccination priority/group. You will be notified - via your choice of either email or phone - when you are able to schedule vaccination.

The registration includes your preferred contact information (email address or best phone number to reach you). When vaccines are available and it is your "turn", the Health Department will contact you with a notification of time and place and you will book your appointment upon receiving that information.
Registrations have been migrated over to the new system. So, if you are already registered, you do not have to do so again. If you have any doubts, please visit the registration site, enter your information again, and the system will confirm if you have already registered.
This response is from the Center for Disease Control (CDC)
Once receiving your Covid vaccine, it is recommended that you wait at least 14 days between this vaccination and any other vaccination (flu, shingles, etc.)
If you get another vaccine first, wait at least 14 days before getting your COVID-19 vaccine.
***** If a COVID-19 vaccine is inadvertently given within 14 days of another vaccine, you do not need to restart the COVID-19 vaccine series; you should still complete the series on schedule. When more data are available on the safety and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines administered simultaneously with other vaccines, CDC may update this recommendation.
At this time York County is still not in control of any vaccine or vaccination distribution. The Senior Center has been made available to the Health Department for a vaccination clinic and Peninsula Health District officials are preparing to open the site. At this point it is not open to the general public- all vaccines are being scheduled through The PHD.
Vaccinations have been given to a significant number of health care workers as well as some public safety and other critical workers have been vaccinated or scheduled to be vaccinated. Vaccinations are also underway at several assisted living and other senior housing facilities. We expect to share announcements regarding Peninsula vaccination sites for the general public in the coming weeks.
The Peninsula localities and hospital partners are all aware of the urgency and we are lending our support and doing what we can to assist. We are trying very hard to get a better understanding of how we can bring resources to the table and make the process move along. At this time, we suggest that you continue to monitor not only the Health Department, but the county’s web site. As soon as we know anything for certain, we will report out over all of our communications platforms.
If you have not already registered, please do so at the state’s vaccination site.
While the vaccine supply is limited, COVID-19 vaccines will be offered in phases. People who are most likely to have severe COVID-19 illness, essential workers, and individuals age 75 and older are in the first vaccination groups.
If you have questions about the vaccination, please call your doctor’s office or pharmacy. Information is also available on the Virginia Department of Health’s website – vaccinate.virginia.gov.
Photo identification is not required for vaccination. It is important, however, to have some way to confirm your identity (i.e. name, date of birth) so that Virginia Department of Health can confirm they are vaccinating the right person. You cannot be turned away for lack of documentation.
Yes, the vaccine is provided at no cost to everyone.
Proof of Virginia residency is not required to receive a COVID vaccine from the Virginia Department of Health. Vaccines are intended to be used for the residents in the districts where the vaccines are provided, however. But, no one who qualifies is refused a vaccine based on where they live.
