It's National Rabies Awareness Week. What better time to check your fur baby's shot records! Rabies is 100% preventable but 100% fatal if contracted. Protect the ones you love. Get them vaccinated!

There are many ways you and your family can protect yourselves and your pets from #rabies: appreciate wildlife from a distance, don’t adopt wild animals as pets, keep your pets on your own property, and keep garbage and pet food secure inside. For more information about rabies, visit the VDH website: www.vdh.virginia.gov/animal-contact-human-health/ #RabiesAwarenessWeek

The COVID Vaccine and Pregnancy - Philadelphia Surrogacy Center

Great resource article from the Surrogacy Center of Philadelphia. For women who are not yet pregnant but wish to either become surrogate or traditional parents, the CDC notes that the COVID vaccine and pregnancy are a smart combination. That’s because the vaccine is recommended, whether currently pregnant, thinking of becoming pregnant, or not sure whether they’ll ever get pregnant. www.philadelphiasurrogates.com/the-covid-vaccine-and-pregnancy/

There are still a lot of questions about the COVID vaccine and pregnancy, especially for pregnant women. Find the answers in our blog post.

Yesterday my husband and I received our first Covid vaccine shot through Chesapeake Health Department in Grassfield. The process was seamless with everything very fine-tuned and running on schedule. Everyone we came in contact with was professional and efficient. Kudos to everyone working with this venture and best of luck to all of those waiting for their turn.
OK its next week-where is the vaccine dashboard?
OK its next week-where is the vaccine dashboard?
Is this page the only official source for citizens of Chesapeake to get information regarding Covid vaccinations? If so, please consider suspending all non-Covid posts for the time being so we can quickly find the important Covid updates. Also, could you please share some information about HOW and when there might be some sort of system for people in 1B - the group you areserving right now - will at least have a chance to SIGN UP for a shot. Seeing how many people have already been vaccinated when I (over 65) haven't even been offered a chance to TRY to sign up just makes me angry. A little useful information about what to expect can at least give us a little hope.
The Rite Aid qualifier website is horrible! Why does the CVS one say The COVID-19 vaccine is not yet available at CVS Pharmacy in Virginia so you can't even try to pre-register. I don't like how this is going.
Maybe someone can answer my question.... According to CDC, I qualify to be in the vaccination group 1b in Virginia, having qualified with 2 high-risk medical conditions. When I go to the Virginia Chesapeake Health Department, and RiteAid websites to sign up through the notification system or schedule an appointment at RiteAid, neither one of those sites list the high-risk medical conditions that I qualify under. Does that mean that there are "selected" high-risk medical conditions that are being moved to group 1c in Virginia, the general populous? Or has this been an oversight?
How much Covid 19 vaccine was administered February 3rd in the City of Chesapeake and where are the vaccination sites for February 4th?
Explain to me how two people who live in portsmouth were able to get am appointment at the Chesapeake Health Department and get there vaccinations. There are not 1A.
There is a problem wit form to register for vaccine. Difficulty in accepting phone number in any form.
How do I register for 1b vaccinations?
Could we please have a website that is clearer and easier to navigate? This page from Fairfax County is a good example:
Chesapeake has not made a public resource available for group 1a or 1b to register. This is in spite of the fact that other cities that entered 1b after Chesapeake have public registration available. So far it is all promises and no action.
