According to Gov. Ralph Northam, all Virginians will be able to get a coronavirus vaccine in a little over two weeks.

The governor made the announcement on Thursday morning, stating that all Virginians over the age of 16 will be eligible starting on April 18.

“The COVID-19 vaccine is the light at the end of the tunnel—and that light is getting brighter every day as more and more Virginians get vaccinated,” said Gov. Northam.

As of Thursday, more than 3.7 million total coronavirus vaccine doses have been administered.

Starting on April 4, Northam said that districts that have invited everyone pre-registered in Phase 1c can invite members of the general public who have pre-registered.

Northam said that those at the highest risk will continue to receive priority.
