Augusta Health Immunization Clinic Update: June 21, 2021


In partnership with the Shenandoah Central Health District (CSHD), Augusta Health is continuing community vaccinations against COVID-19.

Current number of vaccination doses at Augusta Health:

  • Doses administered on Saturday June 19, 2021: 68

  • Total doses administered in Augusta Health vaccination clinics: 79,478

  • Community member fully vaccinated in HA vaccination clinics: 41 112

Immunization efforts

Augusta Health immunizes all people 12 years of age and older who live, work or attend school in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are licensed for people 18 years of age and older. The Pfizer vaccine is authorized for persons 12 years of age and older; a parent or guardian must be present to consent to the vaccination of persons under 18 years of age.

The focus of vaccination efforts has shifted from large-scale mass vaccination clinics on campus to smaller, more convenient neighborhood clinics throughout the community. Large clinics will still be scheduled regularly, but in half-day increments.

Community clinics

Augusta Health also offers off-campus community clinics in partnership with local organizations, churches and schools. The number of these clinics has increased considerably.

Last week, nine community events provided 246 doses of the vaccine. This week, these community clinics are scheduled:

  • Wednesday June 23

  • Thursday, June 17

  • Friday June 25

Community organizations wishing to partner with Augusta Health for an immunization clinic can contact VaccinationTaskForce [at] augustahealth.com for more information on the requirements.
