Perhaps this news changed them for the better or worse. I remember contemplating about not wanting to live anymore....

COVID-19 Vaccine Update:
As of February 5, AHD has received more than 36,000 vaccine pre-registration submissions. Alexandria receives less than 2,000 first doses a week, so vaccinating the entire eligible population will take time.

When there are available appointments, AHD contacts people by phone or email in the order that they pre-registered, from within the currently eligible categories. Currently, residents ages 65 and over and frontline essential workers are eligible. When contacted by phone, the number will likely show up as 703.746.4988 and people will be called three times; a voicemail will be left if no one answers. Emails will come from [email protected], and may end up in spam folders, so check frequently.

Appointments will be available either at an AHD vaccine event or with a local private provider. Within the frontline essential worker category, AHD is prioritizing health care workers from Phase 1a and the top tiers of Phase 1b (police, fire, corrections and shelter workers, childcare, and K12 staff). However, AHD is offering appointment slots to all essential workers in 1b at this time. AHD has not started vaccinating those 16-64 with underlying medical conditions.
