If you received a COVID-19 vaccine, you have a much lower chance of developing severe illness, hospitalization and death from the virus.
However, as the length of time since vaccination has increased, we are starting to see reduced protection, particularly for mild or moderate COVID-19 infection. As a result, following FDA authorizations, the CDC has now recommended a booster dose for eligible individuals who have received any one of the three FDA-authorized vaccines.
The Emergency Broadband Benefit is an FCC program to help families and households struggling to afford internet service during the COVID-19 pandemic. This new benefit will connect eligible households to jobs, critical healthcare services, virtual classrooms, and so much more. More information on how to apply here.
Fairfax Water is resuming normal bill collection processes. This includes disconnection of service for unpaid bills.
If you are behind on your bill, please contact Fairfax Water to set up a payment plan or apply for assistance before your water is shut off. You must set up a payment plan before your water service is disconnected. Once service has been disconnected, your account must be paid in full before service will be turned back on.
People 12 years and older are now eligible to receive a free COVID-19 vaccine. Appointments are available at Fairfax County Health Department clinics, the Tysons Community Vaccination Center, and the George Mason University.
Residents may now register for a COVID-19 vaccine (when eligible) using a new Spanish form that’s now available. The English form also can be switched between English and Spanish by selecting the language in the top right of the screen.
Temporary Shelter During COVID-19: In response to the COVID-19 public health emergency and the need to isolate and quarantine individuals to prevent the spread of the virus, Fairfax County has activated Emergency Support Function 6: Mass Care Health and Human Services. As a result, the county will provide Quarantine, Protection, Isolation/Decompression (QPID) emergency housing for those who have met the eligibility criteria and are unable to safely practice infection control. The Fairfax County Isolation/Quarantine Hotels are temporary sheltering sites only and do not provide health care services. This sheltering is not an alternate care site and hotel placements are available only to individuals who can do their own self-care and are independent in their care; or in the case of people experiencing homelessness, utilizing the care options available to them routinely. Health care providers will not be on-site to provide to healthcare needs. If you have additional questions about whether you meet the criteria for these temporary shelters, please call the Fairfax County Health Department Call Center at 703-267-3511.
