ORIGINAL STORY

Now that Virginia has moved into Phase 1b of coronavirus vaccinations, many are wondering how they can request one.

Unlike those who are eligible based on their jobs, one group is eligible simply based on age.

Those who are 65 years and older are now able to request the vaccine. While the age of Phase 1b was previously 75 and older, Gov. Ralph Northam announced on Jan. 14, that Phase 1b would be increased to follow CDC guidelines.
