COVID-19 :: City of Alexandria Provides COVID-19 Updates; Reminder to Update Pre-registration Records; Weekly Vaccine Updates; Expanded Vaccine Availability Coming Soon
Reminder to Update Pre-registration Records
The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) reminds residents who have pre-registered for the COVID-19 vaccine but have not received their vaccine, that it is critical to verify and update their records. Visit alexandriava.gov/Vaccines and select “Update Pre-registration Record.” If required information is missing, such as home address, work address or employment industry, appointments may be delayed. Verifying information and updating records will not change your pre-registration date or reference code. Partially or fully vaccinated residents can now answer a question on the form to avoid receiving additional vaccination pre-registration emails from VDH.
Weekly Vaccine Updates
During AHD vaccine clinics between April 2 and April 8: 1,986 people were partially vaccinated with a first dose and 4,415 people were fully vaccinated with either a second dose of Moderna or Pfizer or with the single required dose of Johnson & Johnson's vaccine. AHD's vaccinating partners, which include pharmacies and private providers, administered the remainder of Alexandria's vaccine supply this past week.
Alexandria will receive 11,110 doses for next week, pending supply availability. This does not include additional vaccine supplies from federal programs provided directly to participating pharmacies and Alexandria's federally qualified health center, Neighborhood Health. AHD uses the doses received at their large vaccine events and allocates the rest to private providers. AHD directly schedules appointments, by phone or email, for their vaccine events and the vast majority of private providers in Alexandria from the existing pre-registration list. The other private providers are vaccinating eligible residents based on AHD's guidance.
Expanded Vaccine Availability Coming Soon
Access to COVID-19 vaccines will be expanding soon. AHD encourages all residents to pre-register for vaccines now, even if they are not currently eligible for an appointment. Visit alexandriava.gov/Vaccines and select “Pre-Register for Vaccine Waitlist.” Anyone who does not have email or internet access should contact the Alexandria COVID-19 Hotline weekdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 703.746.4988.
