The Virginia Department of Health has authorized the Arlington County Public Health Department to begin vaccination of individuals in Phase 1b, which includes teachers and education staff.
APS is working with the Arlington County Public Health Department to ensure that all APS staff can register to receive the vaccine in Phase 1b. The first appointments were scheduled on January 16. Staff can find information about receiving the vaccine on Staff Central.
Arlington County continues to provide vaccine appointments for staff. Below are important reminders:
- Anyone looking to schedule the second dose of the vaccine should do so at the same location in which they received the first dose. If that location is no longer available, contact the local health district in which the original vaccine was received. Arlington County may not be able to accommodate individuals for second doses who chose to obtain first doses in other localities.
- The week of Feb. 15, there was a significant shipping delay nationwide due to the mid-west storms. Those delays have been resolved and first and second doses are now being scheduled in Arlington County.
- The vaccine is safe, effective, and the clinics are well organized. Anyone who has already been notified that they are eligible to schedule first dose vaccines can do so by clicking on the links sent to them from Arlington County via EventBrite. Look for the email from email@example.com.
