Virginia to Expand Vaccine Eligibility to All Adults by April 18

On Thursday, Governor Ralph Northam announced that all individuals in Virginia age 16 and older will be eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine starting on Sunday, April 18, ahead of the May 1 nationwide goal set by President Joe Biden. 


What does this mean for Arlington?

  • Based on an influx of vaccine supply at the state level, the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) has allocated an increase in local supply of vaccine to complete Arlington County's aggressive vaccination schedule for the next three weeks in an effort to move to Phase 2.
  • VDH has indicated all local health districts, including Arlington, will have enough vaccine to complete outreach to priority groups by the week of April 18. Assuming that the necessary supply is received on schedule, we will hopefully then be able to reach Phase 2 open eligibility to the general public.
    • Those at highest risk will continue to receive priority in the scheduling process.
    • We anticipate being able to send scheduling notifications to everyone pre-registered in Phase 1C by mid-April.
  • We are committed to ensuring everyone on our priority pre-registration lists are notified to schedule appointments prior to going to Phase 2.

Everyone who lives or works in Virginia should pre-register so they can be notified when they are eligible for vaccination and vaccine is available.

  • To pre-register, visit or call 877-VAX-IN-VA (877-829-4682, TTY users call 7-1-1).
  • If you have already pre-registered, please ensure your information is updated and complete.
  • All who have pre-registered should periodically check spam/junk folders for a notification to schedule a vaccine. Emails from Arlington County's Public Health Division will come from, with the subject line "Invitation to Schedule COVID-19 Vaccine Appointment."
  • Anyone who is eligible for a vaccine can use to fine COVID-19 Vaccines near them
