Beginning today, Thursday, April 29, individuals 16 and over can directly schedule an appointment online to receive a free COVID-19 vaccine at the Loudoun County Health Department vaccination clinic located at Dulles Town Center in Sterling.
The Health Department encourages all unvaccinated people age 16 and older who live or work in the county to schedule an appointment as soon as possible by visiting loudoun.gov/covid19vaccine
. The website includes a link to the online form where individuals can request an account to schedule an appointment. An email address or cell phone number may only be used once to create an account. If an email address or cell phone number was used during the pre-registration phase, that contact information cannot be used again.
After completing the form, individuals will automatically receive an email or text message from the CDC with a link to create an account in the Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS) and schedule an appointment at the Loudoun County Health Department vaccination clinic. With this change, individuals no longer need to pre-register.
“We have exhausted the waitlist for those who have pre-registered in Loudoun County and this is an important step in streamlining vaccination and lowering barriers to appointments,” said Dr. David Goodfriend, director of the Loudoun County Health Department. “Vaccination is the best step we can take to reduce disease transmission and return to normal.”
Individuals who have pre-registered should have received an invitation to schedule a vaccine appointment. Anyone who has not received an invitation to schedule should check their email spam folder or go online to schedule an appointment now. The vaccination site continues to be by appointment only.
Anyone who needs assistance scheduling an appointment, including individuals who do not have internet access, can contact the Health Department at 703-737-8300, Monday-Sunday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Individuals under 18 must choose an appointment where Pfizer is offered and must have a parent or guardian present at the appointment. Vaccine types available will be noted during the scheduling process. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be available at the Loudoun vaccination site beginning Saturday, May 1, 2021.
