Public-facing Airport Employees in Phase 1C

Last week the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) clarified when airport workers who deal with the public would be eligible for the Coronavirus vaccine.  In answer to a question posed by the Virginia Department of Aviation Director, they responded that these public-facing airport employees would be in category 1B.  Today, the VDH advised that its decision was in error and it considers public-facing airport employees to be in category 1C.  We wanted to promptly share this change with you.

The Virginia Department of Aviation (DOAV) will continue to share COVID-19 related information that may impact the aviation community.  Please check the Virginia Department of Health’s website for all of the most current COVID-19 information.
