COVID-19 Vaccine

Loudoun residents 16 and over can now directly schedule appointments online to receive a COVID-19 vaccine at the Dulles Town Center in Sterling, according to a Thursday press release by the Loudoun County Health Department.

Vaccine recipients are no longer required to pre-register before scheduling an appointment, officials said.

"We have exhausted the waitlist for those who have pre-registered in Loudoun County and this is an important step in streamlining vaccination and lowering barriers to appointments," Loudoun Health Director Dr. David Goodfriend said in a prepared statement.

The types of vaccines available will be listed during the scheduling process. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be available at the Sterling site starting May 1. Residents under 18 are required to schedule an appointment in which the Pfizer vaccine is offered.

Heath Department officials encourage unvaccinated residents to schedule an appointment at earliest convenience by visiting loudoun.gov/covid19vaccine.

Those who have pre-registered but have not received an invitation to schedule an appointment are asked to check their email spam folder or go online to schedule an appointment immediately.

More information about the county's response to the COVID-19 pandemic is available at loudoun.gov/coronavirus.
