COVID-19 Vaccine Information
VA Dept of Health COVID Page
Click here for Virginia COVID-19 data and information on vaccine distribution.
Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS) is an optional, web-based application that supports planning and execution for temporary, mobile, or satellite COVID-19 vaccination clinics, as well as traditional medical practices that do not have existing IT systems for vaccination clinic management. Using this link, individuals or employers can sign up for vaccine distribution.
Registering your organization’s information in this portal with the CDC will allow you to let them (and providers) know which of your employees are eligible for the vaccine when 1C vaccines begin being distributed.
For questions and to access VAMS training materials led by VDH (i.e., slides, recordings),
contact the VDH Vaccine Unit at email@example.com.
Finance Essential Workers Included in Phase 1c
The Governor announced the COVID-19 vaccination distribution plans for Phase 1b and 1c. Finance essential workers are included in Phase 1c. You can read more about Phase 1c here, including the potential order within the phase. The classification of essential workers in the financial services sector can be found on page 21 here.
In a letter on January 8, VBA and Virginia Credit Union League encouraged the Virginia Department of Health and Richmond City & Henrico County Health Departments to regard frontline bank employees as essential workers for top priority for the vaccinations within the Phase 1C sequence.
Recent Call on Governor’s Revised Executive Order on COVID-19
The VBA has been holding virtual meetings on a variety of topics. On December 16, we were pleased to have Ryan Glasgow, partner, Hunton Andrews Kurth, for a meeting on the Governor’s revised Executive Order on COVID-19. Ryan also provided information on Executive Order 72 on Commonsense Surge Restrictions. Ryan represents employers and executives in labor matters and complex employment litigation and provides strategic labor and employment advice. He was joined by Heather Eastep, partner, Hunton Andrews Kurth. Heather’s practice focuses on corporate and regulatory representation of small to large regional and national financial institution franchises. Heather provided an update on the Employee Retention Credit under the CARES Act before Ryan provided his update and answers to questions he frequently receives.
Following Heather and Ryan’s remarks, we had an open discussion on branch operations in light of the current spike in the COVID-19 infection rate. Chairman John Asbury started off the discussion with information on Atlantic Union Bank’s current strategy.
