Pre-register for the COVID-19 vaccine today
Medicaid members receiving consumer-directed services and their attendants are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. This includes the following types of care:
- Personal care
- Respite services
- Companion services
We encourage our members and their personal care attendants to pre-register for the vaccine on the Virginia Department of Health’s website. You can also call the vaccine hotline at 877-829-4682 if you prefer to speak with someone by phone.
Fairfax County is using its own registration site. If you live in Fairfax County, you can use the county’s website to pre-register for a vaccine.
We want to make sure that you have the information you need to answer your questions about the new COVID-19 vaccine. Here are some frequently asked questions:
- Will it work? There are three vaccines available now. They are all highly effective at preventing serious illness and hospital admissions from COVID-19.
- How do I receive a vaccine? Once you pre-register, you will receive updates when you are able to schedule an appointment to receive a vaccine.
- What does it cost? There is no cost for anyone to receive a vaccine.
- What should I expect when I receive a vaccine? Depending on the type of vaccine you receive, you will need one or two doses to ensure you are protected from COVID-19. You do not need to bring a government-issued ID and cannot be turned away for not having ID. However, you should bring some form of ID if possible to make sure the right person receives the vaccine.
