PWHD to Receive Additional Vaccines Next Week for Second Doses

*All vaccinations are by appointment only.  The Prince William Health District was notified that it will receive 5,000 doses of vaccine next week for second doses.  The health district will still get its regular allotment of the vaccine.

With the goal to administer these vaccines as quickly as possible, the health district is opening two additional vaccination sites next week. These two sites will be in addition to the vaccine clinic at Beacon Hall on the Manassas Campus of GMU.

Potomac Middle School will open as a vaccination site starting on Monday, Feb. 1, and the Kelly Leadership Building will open as an additional vaccination site on Tuesday, Feb. 2.  If the health district continues to receive additional doses above their weekly allocation, then these sites will continue to be available. These 5,000 additional doses will be used to help address the backlog of those waiting for appointments.

Reminder- COVID Fatigue: All are reminded that this is not the time to get complacent. We need to continue to be vigilant. Remember the best defense is, Wear your Mask, Wash your Hands, Social Distance 6 feet or more, Limit Social gathering Sizes to 10 people or less, and Avoid large Crowds.
