Blue Ridge Health District COVID-19 Vaccination Plans

This week, Blue Ridge Health District (BRHD) launched a new COVID-19 vaccination clinic site at the former Kmart parking lot in Charlottesville, and began vaccinating Phase 1A eligible frontline healthcare workers. Vaccination clinics will be expanded throughout the health district next week and BRHD will soon begin to vaccinate all Phase 1A frontline healthcare workers. At this time, all vaccinations are by appointment only for Phase 1A individuals. Read this update for more information about upcoming vaccine phases, including new surveys for Phase 1B. Visit the BRHD COVID-19 Vaccination website for the latest information about our vaccination plans

Community ID Program

The Community ID card program continues to operate on an appointment basis. Those needing a verifiable ID can come to Saturday morning sessions, now being held twice/month. The next one is this coming Saturday, Jan. 9. NOTE: applicants need to call in advance and make an appointment, and learn the documents that are required. The attached fliers (both English and Spanish) have all the specifics.
Also, the driver privilege cards that were approved by the General Assembly for those who aren’t eligible for the regular drivers licenses will also provide verifiable ID, but there is a 3-month wait to get appointments at the DMV, and some undocumented people won't choose to sign up for these cards. So the Community ID program will continue.
