Hunter Mill District News - February 17, 2021


Feb. 17, 2021

Dear Neighbors,

Another winter storm is in our forecast for tomorrow, which may include a combination of snow and ice. Please take a few minutes to review the county's Guide to Snow for resources, including VDOT plowing information, safe shoveling tips and more. A few things you can do to prepare before the snow arrives:
  • Charge all your electronic devices, especially smart phones.
  • Make sure you have plenty of gas and windshield wiper fluid in your car.
  • Check on neighbors who are older or disabled to make sure they are OK and have enough food, etc.
  • Subscribe to the Fairfax Alerts .

Please Note if You Have a Vaccine Scheduled Tomorrow, Feb. 18
The COVID-19 vaccine clinics scheduled at the Fairfax County Government Center and the four Health Department District office sites on Thursday, Feb. 18 are cancelled, due to the expected winter storm. People who have appointments will receive an email informing them of the cancellation. The cancellation notice will contain a link to reschedule their appointment for clinics scheduled during the upcoming week. Please note that appointment locations may be at a different site than where you were originally scheduled.
Residents who need assistance in rescheduling their appointment may call the COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline at 703-324-7404. Learn more.

Fairfax Health District Not Participating in Statewide COVID-19 Vaccine Registration System At This Time
The Fairfax County Health Department (covers Fairfax County, City of Fairfax, Falls Church, Vienna, Herndon and Clifton) is not participating in the statewide COVID-19 vaccine registration system. Eligible residents should continue to use the Fairfax County registration system already in place. The county has invested a lot of resources into our registration system and at this point, the decision was made to maintain our system that residents are familiar with to cut down on confusion. The Health Department will continue to have conversations with the state about registration as the vaccine process rolls out. Learn more.

Vaccine Registration Status Checker
The Health Department has identified some technical issues that have come up with the Vaccine Registration Status Checker that was launched on Friday, Feb. 12. More information is forthcoming, but if you have questions, call the Health Department's call center at 703-324-7404, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays and 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends. (Evenings and weekends are recommended for shorter wait times.) More information on the status checker and vaccine dashboard is in my Feb. 12 vaccine update.

What You Need to Know When You Get Vaccinated AND After You Get Vaccinated
To date, more than 110,000 people have been vaccinated in Fairfax County (administered by both the Health Department and their vaccination partners). For those still waiting for vaccine, you may have questions about what happens during and after your appointment. These tips will help you know what to expect when you get vaccinated, what information you will receive and resources you can use to monitor your health after you are vaccinated. Learn more.

COVID-19 Symptoms Can Last for Months for “Long Haulers"
While most people fully recover from the virus, an estimated 10 to 30% experience long-term medical problems. The British Medical Journal found that 10% of people still experienced symptoms three weeks after their illness. Learn more.

Please stay safe and I will send you more information about the winter storm and vaccine distribution when it is available.

Respectfully,
Walter
