COVID-19 vaccination gets easier to get

If you are 16 and older and live in the West Piedmont Health District, you can be vaccinated against COVID-19, and there is plenty of vaccine available for you to find.

The Martinsville Bulletin reports health district spokesperson Nancy Bell said the district had made the move last week into Phase 2 of the Virginia Department of Health’s inoculation plan, which means the program is open for all adults.

This is in advance of the changes announced first by Gov. Ralph Northam and then on Tuesday by President Joe Biden to open the vaccinations to all adults by April 18.
