To the Fairfax County Community,
A few exciting news items to share:
This morning we have expanded eligibility to the following groups of essential workers within 1B:
- Food and agriculture
- Grocery store workers
If you live or work in Fairfax County and meet the criteria, please register with the Fairfax County Health Department here. The criteria is illustrated in the chart below and detailed here. Other eligible groups include those over 65, those 16-64 with a high risk medical condition, and frontline workers.
You may be aware of VDH's announcement that there are a few health districts that will begin the transition to Phase 1C this week. While we are not quite there yet, we do expect to make that transition soon, perhaps by mid-April, when all jurisdictions are expected to have moved into Phase 1C. Phase 2 is expected to begin by May 1, per the President's deadline.
Personas en el Condado de Fairfax ahora pueden registrarse para una vacuna COVID-19 (cuando sea elegible) usando un nuevo formulario en español que ya está disponible. El formulario se puede cambiar entre inglés y español seleccionando el idioma en la parte superior derecha de la pantalla. Si las personas no pueden registrarse en línea, se les pide que llamen al 703-324-7404 para brindarles asistencia en español (a igual que en otros idiomas).
Finally, this week we received over 43,000 vaccine doses! This is a significant jump from last week's 31,000 doses and welcome news as we work to get shots in arms quickly and efficiently.
