COVID-19: Get Vaccinated
Protect Yourself from COVID-19: Get Vaccinated!
CDC and VDH recommend the Pfizer-BioNTech updated bivalent vaccine for people 12 and older and the Moderna updated bivalent vaccine for people 18 and older at least 2 months after being fully vaccinated.
Bivalent vaccines protect against two strains of a disease, in this case, the original strain and the newer Omicron variant of COVID-19. Vaccine providers may receive the new boosters at different times, call ahead to check availability. Alexandria Health Department will add booster clinics to this website as they become available.
Appointments for AHD booster clinics are required at this time. Additional appointment options at pharmacies and other providers can be found at vaccines.gov
