Area residents are about to receive the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
The Prince William Health District (PWHD) is administering the Moderna vaccine. Two doses are needed, with the second recommended 28 to 32 days after the initial one.
This second dose supply, the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) informed Prince William County, is being shipped to Virginia health districts.
At this time, recipients aren’t able to schedule appointments for the second dose through the Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS), according to a release from the PWHD.
Prince William County is setting up a plan to assist those who received the first dose from the PWHD between December 28 and January 21.
Beginning this week, a team will reach out to community members and help create an appointment.
A waitlist application was recently set up for those interested in scheduling a COVID-19 vaccine appointment.
Automated emails were sent to those who have been added to it. Applicants who reached out to the PWHD Call Center or didn’t provide a valid email should get a phone call within 24 hours.
Anyone who hasn’t received an email or phone call are asked to complete the application again, because the contact information was incorrect or there was a computer error.
Some waitlist applicants received multiple confirmation numbers. Those who did should use the lowest number.
To contact the call center, call 703-872-7759 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Sunday.
Additional details and updates are available on the VDH website.
