Shawn DeRose, Annandale High School Principal said, “They’re so many benefits that we know of being vaccinated of. One of them being, that a student when they return to instruction 5 days a week, if they’re exposed to someone with COVID, they no longer need to quarantine as issued by the Fairfax County Health Department.”
Vaccinations will take place during the school day and parents/guardians must register students through the Fairfax County Health Department. Annandale High School looks to utilize their gymnasium to vaccinate anywhere between 600-700 students.
