Community Vaccine Clinic to Open
On Thursday, the Community Vaccine Clinic will officially open in the former Michael’s at the Highlands. The clinic is a collaboration involving Wheeling Hospital, the Wheeling-Ohio County Health Department, Wheeling Health Right and the Wheeling-Ohio County Emergency Management Agency. First to be vaccinated will be West Virginians age 65 and up. As vaccine supplies become more readily available, the vaccine clinic will be able to vaccinate 1,000 people per day. Nationally, West Virginia continues to be recognized for its success at getting the vaccine in people’s arms.
The clinic will not accept any walk-in appointments, and patients must present a valid West Virginia ID, or U.S. passport and a utility bill with a West Virginia address, to verify West Virginia residence. West Virginians can pre-register online at vaccinate.wv.gov. Those who have already been placed on a wait list through their local health department or other medical provider, as well as those who have already received their first vaccine dose, will be integrated into this new system and thus do not need to pre-register. Users will get a message after registering to confirm they are in the system and will be sent updates regularly. The system sends texts, email, and phone calls. Any West Virginian who does not have the ability to register online can call the COVID19 Vaccine Info Line at 1-833-734-0965 to get help with pre-registration. The call center is active from Monday Friday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
