Virginia Begins Phase 1B Vaccinations

Virginia will start Phase 1B coronavirus vaccinations Monday for 11 health districts in the state.

The state health department said six of those districts — Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, Prince William County and Lord Fairfax — are in Northern Virginia, WTOP reported. The other five counties are in southwest Virginia.

Those in the 1B group now eligible for the shots include front-line essential workers, those 75 and older and people in correctional facilities, homeless shelters and migrant labor camps, WTOP reported.

Districts outside of the 11 are primarily focusing on Phase 1A vaccinations set for health care personnel and residents of long-term care facilities.

The department said all parts of the state are expected to enter Phase 1B by the end of January, with each district announcing when it moves to the next phase.

As of Monday, the state has roughly 403,000 coronavirus cases and 5,400 virus-related deaths, according to health department statistics.
