COVID-19 UPDATE: New features on Vaccine Due Date Calculator demonstrated


Over 17,000 West Virginians have used the Vaccine Calculator since Friday last week
CHARLESTON, WV – Gov. Jim Justice and members of the West Virginia COVID-19 pandemic response leadership team held another news briefing today to update the public on the state’s latest pandemic response and vaccine distribution efforts.
On Monday, Gov. Justice was joined by Coronavirus Czar Dr. Clay Marsh, who announced that the state’s free, online COVID-19 Vaccine Due Date Calculator has added new functionality to better help West Virginians understand when it’s their time to get vaccinated.

The Calculator, which remains the first of its kind in the U.S., has been updated to share not only the date that the user becomes due for a COVID-19 shot, but also what type of COVID-19 vaccine they are recommended to receive.

Additionally, users who scroll down on the final page will now find a “Medical Info” button for healthcare providers. The Medical Info page includes information to assist medical providers in their clinical recommendations for vaccination patients, as well as links to various helpful resources for clinical considerations and vaccine administration and more.

During Monday’s briefing, Dr. Marsh spotlighted the updates and provided a helpful reminder to West Virginians on how to use the Calculator with a live demonstration of the tool.

The Calculator is run completely on the user’s browser. Anything the user enters is not visible to or stored by anyone managing the tool. No names, addresses, or credit card information are ever requested for calculations, and the tool is always free for everyone.

More than 17,000 West Virginians have used the Vaccine Calculator in just the past three days.
West Virginians wanting further help using the Calculator are welcome to call the West Virginia COVID-19 Vaccine Info Line: 1-833-734-0965.
Gov. Justice reported Monday that there are now 1,964 active cases of COVID-19 statewide; up by 306 cases since his previous briefing on Friday last week.

Over the past month, the number of active cases in the state has more than quadrupled. The number of hospitalizations, patients in ICUs, and patients on ventilators have all leveled out in the same timeframe.

“Anybody can look at this and see that our numbers are bumping up,” Gov. Justice said. “Unfortunately, I don’t think this thing is just going to miraculously evaporate forever overnight. We have got to find a way to live with this.

“It can be managed,” Gov. Justice continued. “The way to manage it is to make sure you’re up-to-date on your vaccinations and your booster shots. You have to stay on top of your game. Use our Vaccine Calculator.”

Additionally Monday, Gov. Justice announced that West Virginia has received its second tranche of American Rescue Plan funds, in the amount of $677 million.

The Governor committed to working with the West Virginia Legislature to determine how best to use the funding to benefit the state for generations to come.

“We’re grateful to get another tranche of the ARP money. We just need to be prudent and smart in what we’re doing,” Gov. Justice said.

“During the last Special Session, I proposed, and the Legislature passed, an appropriation of $250 million dollars from the first tranche of ARP money into an account that will provide matching grants for water and sewer projects across the state,” Gov. Justice continued. “Our people absolutely deserve clean drinking water and quality wastewater systems. Now we’re really after it, and we’re just going to try to keep doing more and more goodness for West Virginia.”
Gov. Justice also recapped an event he held on Friday last week to announce that he has approved the bid award for the state’s newest Roads To Prosperity project, which will connect the Town of Welch with the Coalfields Expressway.

Roadwork will involve building a 5.12-mile section of highway from Welch to WV 16, connecting the southern West Virginia town with the Coalfields Expressway. The project includes the construction of two ramps, two bridges, and will require more than 16 million yards of excavation.

The $147.6 million project was awarded to Bizzack Construction of Lexington, KY, and is expected to be complete in the summer of 2026.
