ICYMI: COVID-19 vaccine boosters are now available for ages 16 and older; and first and second doses remain available for ages 5 and older. Details below 👇

#Loudoun County is now offering appointments for COVID-19 vaccine booster doses to 16- and 17-year-olds following the move by federal health authorities to expand booster eligibility to older teens.
➡️ Individuals who are 16 and 17 years old and who received their second dose in the two-dose series of the Pfizer vaccine at least six months ago are eligible for the booster.
➡️ While the county has expanded booster vaccinations to include the new age group, the number of available appointments for people 12 and over is currently limited due to high demand.
