Update for March 5, 2021
Last update February 26, 2021
Loudoun County continues to make progress on the administration of COVID-19 vaccines for people who are on the county’s waitlist.
Loudoun County has started offering appointments to individuals in the following priority groups who submitted pre-registrations online or by phone on January 25 (advanced from January 16 in last report). Priority groups continue to include:
- Health care workers
- Front-line essential workers in priority groups 1b, 1-3:
- Police, fire, and hazmat workers
- Corrections and homeless shelter workers
- Child care/Pre-K – 12 teachers/staff
- People age 65 and up
- People age 16-64 with underlying health conditions
When you are contacted by the Health Department for a vaccination appointment may depend on the exact date and time you registered, your priority category, and the state’s mandated formula of vaccine allocation. It may take several weeks to contact everyone who is on the waitlist for a particular day if registration volume was high.
There are currently 35,394 remaining on the waitlist
(down 11,041 since last
for pre-screening surveys submitted by 5 p.m. on February 12 (with duplicates removed).
The wait time for an appointment continues to be about 6 to 8 weeks from the date of pre-registration.
Vaccine Doses for February 26 to March 4
Total COVID-19 vaccine doses administered in Loudoun is 82,898
(up 18,859 since last Friday’s report), and more than 27,500 Loudoun County residents are fully vaccinated
with two doses of vaccine (up 5,422 since last Friday’s report).
This week, the Health Department received 7,310 first doses of vaccine
(up 1,000 since last Friday’s report), which includes 1,500 doses of Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The Health Department also received a quantity of doses for those people who need their second dose.
The data dashboard can be viewed at loudoun.gov/vaccinedata.
