What Does Public Health Look Like in the Prince William Health District?

Public Health is the science of protecting and improving the health of entire populations through promotion of healthy lifestyles, disease and injury prevention and detection and control of infectious diseases. Our population includes Prince William County, Manassas City and Manassas Park.

Unlike clinical professionals, who focus primarily on treating individuals after they become sick or injured, as public health professionals we try to prevent problems from happening or recurring by implementing educational programs, recommending policies, administering services and conducting research. We work with local, regional and national partners to limit health disparities and promote healthcare equity, quality and accessibility.  Click Here to Download Our Public Health in the Prince William Health District Flyer

October 15, 2021The Prince William Health District What You Should Know: There is a difference between a Third Dose and a Booster Dose • An additional dose (or 3rd dose) of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) is now recommended for people with a weak immune system 28 days after their second dose. This is because their initial immune response after a 2-dose series may not have been strong enough to protect them. This is part of the primary series (2 doses). • A booster dose of a vaccine is recommended when a person’s initial immune response is likely to have decreased over time and is currently recommended for at least six months after the primary series (2 doses) for certain people who received the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.Community Vaccination ClinicCommunity Vaccination Center, Located at the former Gander Mountain store, 14011 Worth Avenue, Woodbridge, VA 22192. offering First, Second, Third, and Booster doses for the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine.
