Fauquier COVID-19 cases total 3,766, up 26 Saturday

Vaccines administered to Fauquier residents totals 9,216 as of Saturday morning, with 2,060 completing the two-shot regimen.
Getting The Vaccine
Under “Phase 1b,” all Virginians 65 and older may register — along with those 16 to 64 with certain medical conditions.

Visit the Virginia Department of Health website

or call 540-308-6072.

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

The health department also has a hotline: 877-275-8343.

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.
