Health care providers have been defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and by the Commonwealth of Virginia as being in the first group that should be vaccinated against COVID-19. All paid and unpaid persons serving in health care settings who have the potential for direct or indirect exposure to patients or infectious materials, including body substances, such as blood, tissue and specific body fluids; contaminated medical supplies, devices and equipment; contaminated environmental surfaces; or contaminated air are eligible for vaccination.
Loudoun County has received Moderna COVID-19 vaccine that can be provided to Loudoun County-based health care offices and providers in accordance with VDH guidelines. Health care offices and providers interested in receiving COVID-19 vaccine should email the Loudoun County Health Department and note whether they are making a request for an office or an individual not associated with an office. The Health Department will work with health care offices to enroll their eligible staff to receive vaccine.
Health care offices in jurisdictions other than Loudoun County should contact the Health Department in the county or city where they are located for information on how to sign up for vaccine.
More information about COVID-19 vaccine is posted at loudoun.gov/covid19vaccine.
Loudoun County encourages residents to stay informed about COVID-19.
Residents with questions about COVID-19 may call the Loudoun County Health Department’s information line, 703-737-8300, or send an email.
