It might take until the summer until the COVID-19 vaccine is widely available in Alexandria, according to Mayor Justin Wilson.
With just 2,000 vaccine doses expected to be received weekly in the city and more than 36,000 residents on the waiting list, Wilson asked for patience over the weekend on Facebook. He also said that CVS pharmacies are being given a small supply of the vaccine.
As of last weekend, the Alexandria Health Department received 18,550 first doses from the state. Of that, 11,141 first doses and nearly 3,000 doses have been administered.
Wilson said that President Joe Biden’s recent comments on vaccine equity were hopeful, but that that the vaccine will not be widely available until later this summer.
VDH recently launched a statewide COVID vaccination registration system, but that won’t make the process any faster. The names on the list have just been transferred to one repository.
Statewide, 1.1 million Virginians have received the first dose of the vaccine and 366,058 have been fully vaccinated.
