*All vaccinations are by appointment only.

The Prince William Health District was notified that it will receive 5,000 additional doses of vaccine next week, in addition to its weekly allocation of doses.

“We are surprised and grateful that we got extra doses of the vaccine,” said Dr. Alison Ansher, the health director of the Prince William Health District. “Our goal is to administer these vaccines as quickly as possible, to get as many Prince William area residents vaccinated and off the wait list as we possibly can.”

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 are in addition to the vaccine clinic at Beacon Hall on the Manassas Campus of George Mason University.

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.

ReminderCOVID Fatigue:

This is not the time to get complacent. We need to continue to be vigilant. Remember the best defense is wear your maskwash your hands; social distance six feet or more; limit social gathering sizes to 10 people or less; and avoid large crowds.
