Loudoun County Update
- Take Steps Against the Winter Surge: Loudoun County and the region are experiencing a high level of COVID-19 transmission. Loudoun County Health Director Dr. David Goodfriend is joining with health directors throughout northern Virginia to encourage residents to maintain their vigilance in curbing the spread of COVID-19 to minimize hospitalizations and deaths during this winter surge. Critical steps residents can take include:
- Getting initial COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters when eligible.
- Wearing a mask indoors when around those not in your household.
- Staying home when sick.
- Socially distancing – staying 6 feet from others as much as possible.
- Avoiding crowded and indoor areas where distancing is not possible, or where you will be in close contact with those whose vaccination status is unknown.

- Boosters for Older Teens: Loudoun County is now offering appointments for COVID-19 vaccine booster doses to 16- and 17-year-olds following the move by federal health authorities to expand booster eligibility to older teens. Individuals who are 16 and 17 years old and who received their second dose in the two-dose series of the Pfizer vaccine at least six months ago are eligible for the booster. While the county has expanded booster vaccinations to include the new age group, the number of available appointments for people 12 and over is currently limited due to high demand. Read more in this Loudoun County news release.
- Vaccination Appointments Available for Children 5 - 11 This Week at Loudoun Clinic: COVID-19 vaccination appointments are readily available this week at Loudoun County's Dulles Town Center clinic for children ages 5 to 11. The clinic has vaccination appointments for children in this age group open as early as tomorrow, Tuesday, December 14, as well as Friday, December 17. You can make an appointment online. In addition to children ages 5 to 11, Loudoun County continues to offer vaccination appointments to anyone 12 years and older who has not yet received a vaccine as well as those individuals who are eligible for a third dose or booster dose. Loudoun County is currently offering all three types of vaccine (Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson). Children 17 and younger must receive Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. COVID-19 vaccines are free. Other vaccination opportunities from providers such as pediatricians’ offices and pharmacies are also available. Find vaccination appointments from any provider at vaccines.gov.
- COVID-19 Testing Event Tuesday: Loudoun County continues to offer free COVID-19 testing on Tuesdays at various locations in the county. Anyone who thinks they may have been exposed to COVID-19 should get tested regardless of their vaccination status. Also, anyone who is exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, such as fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue and a new loss of taste or smell should be tested.
