COVID-19 update: Alexandria getting boost of vaccine doses this week

Alexandria will receive 11,040 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine this week, which is 3,340 more than what was distributed last week.

The vaccines will be a mix of first and second doses, and does not include doses at local pharmacies and from Neighborhood Health, according to the Alexandria Health Department (AHD).

“AHD uses the doses received at their large vaccine events and allocates the rest to private providers,” the health department said.

AHD continued, “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.”

The city wants 80% of residents ages 16 and older (106,618 people) vaccinated by July 31. Residents can pre-register with the city to get the vaccine here.
