The total number of COVID-19 vaccine doses delivered at Augusta Health Vaccination Clinics to date is 73,374, and 37,185 people have been fully vaccinated at the hospital’s clinics.

On May 17, Augusta Health redesigned its on-campus Vaccination Clinic. It’s a smaller, but climate-controlled space that will be air conditioned during the coming warmer weather. Last week, Augusta Health staff also held 12 off campus vaccination events in nursing homes, high schools, housing communities and businesses throughout the Shenandoah Valley.

Augusta Health is vaccinating everyone age 12 and older who lives, works or goes to school in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are authorized for individuals age 18 and over. Pfizer vaccine is authorized for individuals age 12 and older; a parent or guardian must be present to consent to vaccination of those under the age of 18.
