FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. — If you're still on the waitlist to get a vaccine in Fairfax County we have some good news. You can now find out where you stand in line using the county's new dashboard.
According to the dashboard data, there seems to be a month between when someone registers and when they can sign up for an appointment. As of today, people who registered for a vaccine appointment on Monday, Jan. 18 are being contacted for appointments.
Fairfax County officials say it could take several weeks to contact everyone who signed up on a day where registration volume was high based on available vaccine supply.
The database shows weekly vaccine doses received from the Virginia Department of Health and will update hourly with how many vaccines are received and administered by Fairfax County.
There are currently 215,000 people in Fairfax County who have received the first dose or second dose and more than 107,000 people are on the waitlist.
If you can't remember when you registered, you can look it up on the dashboard.

On Friday morning, the Virginia Department of Health announced it would be changing how residents register for the COVID-19 vaccine, starting at 5 p.m. Instead of having people register with local health departments, the state plans to combine all of the city and county signups into one master list. If you're already on a local waitlist, the VDH will transfer your name over to the state's waitlist, and said people would "maintain their current status in the queue."
But if you live within the Fairfax Health District (Fairfax County, the cities of Fairfax and Falls Church, and the towns of Vienna, Herndon and Clifton) you will not be participating in the statewide system at this time.
Instead, those eligible for a vaccine can register online HERE or by phone with the Fairfax County Health Department.
