186 new COVID-19 cases, 12 more deaths in Virginia

Wednesday morning COVID-19 update from the Virginia Department of Health.
Getting The Vaccine
Everyone 12 and older qualifies for vaccination.

Visit the Virginia Department of Health website

On the website, complete the appropriate survey to sign up for the vaccine.

The health department also has a hotline: 877-829-4682.

Fauquier County has a call center to help at 540-422-0111.

The number of people who want the vaccine far outnumbers the supply. It will require patience.
