City of Alexandria Moves into Phase 1c Vaccinations, Phase 2 to Begin by April 18

­­For Immediate Release: April 5, 2021

Alexandria Health Department (AHD) is now scheduling vaccine appointments for frontline essential workers in Phase 1c. After recent supply increases, everyone who pre-registered in Phase 1a and 1b as of March 30 has been contacted to schedule an appointment. Alexandria will move into Phase 2 by April 18 along with all jurisdictions in Virginia, and everyone ages 16 and older will be eligible to receive the vaccine.

At this time, AHD has enough vaccine supply to offer appointments to pre-registered individuals in Phase 1a, 1b, and 1c without further prioritization. All residents who want to receive a vaccine are encouraged to visit to pre-register or update their records.

Those in Phase 1 who have pre-registered before March 30 and have not received a message from AHD should first check their spam folder. If you do not have a message in your spam folder, please complete this form with the exact name and email address (or phone number) you used to pre-register, and your date of birth. If you are a frontline essential worker who registered before the date listed, please update your pre-registration record to ensure that your employment is listed accurately with a valid street address, such as “4480 King St.”, and not “same as home address.” AHD is still prioritizing appointments for those in Phase 1a and 1b in addition to the new appointment availability for Phase 1c. 

In the coming weeks, AHD will launch an updated appointment system to offer more choices for residents to receive vaccines in Phase 2. Everyone ages 16 and older will be able to make an appointment directly with pharmacies, grocery stores, and other providers without waiting for a call or email.

In Phase 2, AHD will continue focusing on the City’s most vulnerable and underserved communities, including residents with limited access to the technology and transportation needed to register for and receive the vaccine. Outreach efforts will be expanded in these communities in conjunction with mobile vaccine events in neighborhood spaces, such as houses of worship, local businesses, apartment complexes and recreation centers.

Visit to learn more, pre-register for vaccine, and update your pre-registration record. All residents are encouraged to pre-register now.

For support pre-registering for vaccine, contact the Alexandria COVID-19 Hotline on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 703.746.4988.

For media inquiries only, contact Natalie Talis, Population Health Manager, at and 703.746.4914.
