COVID-19 UPDATE – As of January 22, 2021
Due to a decrease in vaccine allocation, we are temporarily reducing appointment availability over the coming weeks. Vaccine supply is fluid across the country, and we are matching currently scheduled appointments to anticipated inventory.
At this time we are honoring those who have current appointments. Should our vaccine supply not be sufficiently replenished, we will suspend initial appointments (first doses) for eligible individuals in 1b and prioritize those who require their second vaccine dose in the weeks to come. As vaccine supply increases, we will open more appointments.
Inova has worked diligently in the last month to set up our operations and deliver shots to as many eligible patients as possible. We have administered more than 60,000 vaccines. We look forward to resuming this pace as soon as vaccine supply improves.
Inova.org will continue to provide updates and is the best source for the most up-to-date information on Inova’s vaccine distribution. For more information on Virginia’s vaccine distribution program, visit vdh.virginia.gov.
All Inova hospitals and care sites remain open and are serving patients.
