Roanoke City and Alleghany Health District staff have offered vaccine appointments to everyone they could reach in Phase 1a, 1b, and 1c who signed up on the state pre-registration list through March 31st. They stress there are some issues outside of their control with the pre-registration list. They also have had some people we have not been able to reach (wrong phone number and no email, email bounces back and no phone number, full voicemail, etc).
If you or a loved one registered prior to 3/31, are in Phase 1a, Phase 1b, or Phase 1c, and have not yet been contacted about a vaccine appointment, please email RCAHDCovidResponse@vdh.virginia.gov (or call 540-613-6597).
U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin on Monday submitted a congressional inquiry with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention regarding an HIV outbreak in West Virginia’s largest county.
The West Virginia Democrat asked for the inquiry on behalf of the Kanawha County Commission two months after a CDC official warned that the county’s outbreak was “ the most concerning in the United States.”
Commission President Kent Carper said in a statement that the outbreak “is an important public health issue and is deserving of our full understanding.”
