In Greater Prince William (Prince William, Manassas and Manassas Park), vaccine distribution is managed by the Prince William Health District, which is under Virginia Department of Health authority. Prince William County is working in close partnership with this state agency to support the vaccination of our residents. This massive vaccination effort is constantly evolving, and we will continue sharing the latest updates. A few items to note:
- As of April 5, PWHD has extended appointment invitations to everybody in groups 1a and 1b who pre-registered. Vaccinations are now available to everybody 16+ regardless of work or health status.
- To schedule an appointment please visit vaccinefinder.org or VASE. You will be able to browse all locations near you and sort by type of vaccine. This will allow you the flexibility to choose the date, location, and vaccine that is best for you.
- When you are getting vaccinated, the staff and volunteers on site will explain the process, provide you with information about the vaccine you are about to receive, and schedule your second dose appointment (for Pfizer and Moderna). You can also visit the Virginia Department of Health website for more on what to expect during your appointment.
- Currently most vaccinations are by appointment only. No walk-ins. Most pop-up clinics will require participants to first collect a ticket that assigns an appointment time.
- As of 4/29, the Virginia Department of Emergency Management advised that all Community Vaccination Centers, including the CVC at Gander Mountain (14011 Worth Ave. Woodbridge, VA 22192), will begin accommodating walk-in appointments. Existing appointments will be accommodated as scheduled and the number of walk-ins available will be limited each day.
- The Emergency Operations Center has worked with the PWHD to create a PWHD COVID-19 Vaccine Dashboard.
For questions about the vaccines and already-scheduled appointments, call 877-829-4682. This state-run call center is open daily, 8am-8pm, with English and Spanish speaking operators, and a call back option for translation in 100+ other languages. Operators cannot schedule appointments. As we continue to work together to protect all members of our community over these next few months, please continue to practice COVID safety measure–mask up, spread out, wash up often and get vaccinated when it is your turn. Once vaccinated, there is still a small chance of being infected, and of infecting others through asymptomatic spread. Visit the CDC for the latest guidelines.
