Norfolk Health Department staff are reaching out directly to employers whose businesses are identified as essential according to the VDH Phase 1b guidelines. Health Department staff are working with these employers to facilitate the preregistration of their employees for COVID vaccinations.
Information on these essential Phase 1b business groups can be found at https://www.vdh.virginia.gov/covid-19-vaccine/#phase1b. This is a helpful resource for employers to determine where they fall within the overall vaccination framework.
Employers identified as Phase 1b essential per the above guidance can also reach out directly to the health department to begin the preregistration process for their employees. If you are an employer wishing to register your employees, please email Norman.Grefe@vdh.virginia.gov. For general questions about the COVID vaccination, please contact the Norfolk COVID hotline at 757-683-2745.
Please note that preregistration does not schedule an appointment. Employees will be notified via email when appointments are available.
We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work though the priority groups and build our capacity as vaccines become available.
