40% of Fairfax’s 1.2 million residents are now eligible to receive the vaccine but county officials say supply is limited, and it could take a few weeks to book an appointment.

Fairfax County Board Chair Jeffrey McKay released a letter stating the vaccine registration site has been experiencing technical difficulties, leading the county to temporarily remove the pre-registration form.

Residents who meet the current vaccine phase requirements must still fill out an appointment questionnaire and then the health department will email you to schedule your appointment.
