Fauquier COVID-19 cases total 4,750, up 4 Friday

Virginia has averaged 28,190 doses of vaccine administered per day over the last week.
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.

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