COVID-19 Vaccine Availability at Pharmacies

As you know, vaccine distributions are well underway in Virginia. In addition to the current locations, multiple pharmacies will also soon receive vaccines to distribute.

Pharmacies that receive the vaccine directly from the federal government must still follow Virginia guidelines to determine which populations should receive the injections. Therefore, we will encourage members to check their local pharmacy’s website to check availability and make an appointment, depending on the eligibility guidelines. Members can visit to see the most up to date eligibility guidelines.

As a reminder, two vaccine doses are required for full immunity. Both vaccine doses will be free for Optima Health members.
