The safety and wellbeing of City of Falls Church residents and employees is the top priority for the Office of Emergency Management, which means the last 14 months have been a whirlwind for Mike, today's Public Service Recognition Week employee spotlight.

(You are where you eat? That malapropism doubly doesn't make sense for Mike, since his Falls Church lunch spot is Lazy Mike's.)

Heads up: Virginia will send out an alert on Monday around 10am to re-emphasize that vaccine appointments are open to everyone age 16 and older. 🚨

On Monday, April 19, 2021, the Commonwealth of Virginia will be issuing a Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) System message alerting everyone 16+ that they are now eligible to register for a COVID-19 vaccine under phase 2. Those with cell phones with emergency alerts turned on will receive the message on Monday morning around 10 a.m. EST.

The Federal Communication Commission’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau allows the state, as an authorized alert originator of messages, to use the WEA system as a COVID-19 communications tool.

Virginia will send alerts through the FEMA Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) to participating wireless carriers, which then push the alerts to compatible mobile devices in the area.

Special Edition COVID-19 Update: New Vaccine Scheduling Process to Begin April 18; All People Age 16+ Eligible for a Vaccine in Phase 2

Please share this important update on finding a COVID-19 vaccine appointment!

THE GREAT NEWS: Starting this Sunday, April 18, everyone age 16 and older can register for a COVID-19 vaccine!

BUT, SOMETHING IS DIFFERENT: You find vaccine appointments through www.VaccineFinder.org. The Fairfax Health registration portal will no longer exist after April 17. (But they will schedule appointments for everyone on their list at closing time!)

THIS IS GOOD BECAUSE: You can find your actual appointment at a place of your choice (retail pharmacy, doctor office, etc.) at your choice of time. You will get the second dose of the vaccine at the same place; you'll be given information at your first dose.

ANYTHING ELSE TO KNOW? You might need patience to search for an appointment. Go to VaccineFinder.org at different times of day, different days of the week.

CAN I HELP SPREAD THE WORD? Yes! Share this post or download our flyer and graphics in our latest COVID-19 Update Newsletter: https://mailchi.mp/fallschurchva/covid-19-update-2021april14

Beginning Sunday, April 18, all individuals in the Fairfax Health District who are 16 or older will be eligible to directly schedule a vaccine appointment through VaccineFinder.org as Fairfax County moves into Phase 2 with the rest of Virginia.

General information

The City is part of the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Statistical Area, and is located only six miles from the Nation's Capital and inside the Capital Beltway. The City's downtown is situated at the intersection of Virginia Route 7 and U.S. Route 29. The City is served by Interstate 66, the East Falls Church and West Falls Church Metro stations, and by several convenient bus routes. Falls Church dates back to the late 1600s as an early Colonial settlement shared with Native Americans. The community was established around The Falls Church (Episcopal) that was founded in 1734. Falls Church became a township in 1875 and an independent city in 1948, when parents successfully obtained its separation from Fairfax County in an effort to establish a highly acclaimed school system. More information about the City's storied past is available at the Mary Riley Styles Public Library Local History Room.
