Protect Yourself from COVID-19: Get Vaccinated!

COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective, free and they can save your life. When enough people get vaccinated, we can get back to normal. The Alexandria Health Department (AHD) and its vaccinating partners are currently offering open vaccine scheduling. Schedule your appointment today.

Things to Know Before You Schedule:

  • Vaccines are free of charge and available to everyone ages 12 and up.
  • AHD recommends receiving the first vaccine available and does not endorse one vaccine manufacturer over another.
  • Pfizer is the only vaccine currently authorized for use on people 12-17 years of age. Other vaccines are only authorized for use in people ages 18 and older.
  • Once your first dose appointment is complete, you will be contacted by the provider to schedule your second dose appointment, as necessary.
  • Minors 17 years of age and under must have a parent, guardian, or adult aged 18 or older designated by the parent or guardian present onsite to receive vaccine.
