So, up until today, my understanding was that everyone in the county had to go through the county health department to get vaccinated. Trust me when I say I’ve been reading the county website and press releases closely.
Come to find out today that all the local pharmacies are allowing people to book appointments directly as long as you’re eligible.
I now have 6 pharmacy websites and the county website bookmarked for the 18th or whenever we go to full eligibility, and tomorrow at lunch, I will be seeing about getting on the waitlist at the local market – cause I literally discovered today that they are doing vaccinations there. (When I asked a while back, the pharmacist had no idea.)
And I’ll probably be asking VaccineFairy for help, too.
I wasn’t in love with the county’s “you can only register with us and only when you’re eligible” – but it was straightforward. Having to find out from a damn Patch article that it’s not actually the only option kinda pisses me off.
Fairfax County, get your shit together.
