The COVID-19 Vaccination Dashboard has been updated with a new focus on 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccine data.
The CDC currently recommends a single 2023–2024 updated COVID-19 vaccine for most people.* Therefore the Fairfax County Health Department will no longer report data on the percentage of residents in Fairfax Health District who completed their primary series and boosters. Instead, the dashboard now focuses on 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccine metrics and the total doses given since COVID-19 vaccines became available.
The updated COVID-19 vaccines have been recommended since September 2023. They were updated to provide more protection from severe disease, hospitalization, and death from the variants that are currently circulating.
Currently, 18.6% of residents in Fairfax Health District received the 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccine. We continue to encourage you to keep yourself and others in the community safe by staying up to date with the recommended vaccines. Vaccination remains the safest way to avoid hospitalization, long-term health outcomes, and death. Learn more about the benefits.
It’s not too late to get a COVID-19 vaccine. Visit vaccines.gov to find a location near you. If you are uninsured or underinsured, you can get a no-cost COVID-19 vaccine through participating providers. Visit the CDC’s Bridge Access Program page for more information.
* Vaccine recommendations are based on age, and in some cases, time since last dose, the first vaccine received, and immunocompromised status. People who are immunocompromised or younger than 5 years may need an additional dose.
