WASHINGTON — Localities in the D.C., Maryland and Virginia area are closing down vaccine sites amid winter weather in the region Thursday with sleet, ice and snow.
Frederick County, Fairfax County, Montgomery County, Washington D.C., and Alexandria are some of the localities so far that have canceled vaccinations for Thursday, but more are likely to come as winter weather could bring a significant amount of ice and snow.
In Maryland, mass vaccination sites at the Six Flags in Bowie and the Baltimore Convention Center have closed Thursday. In Montgomery County the site at Richard Montgomery High School will be moved to Saturday, and the one at Quince Orchard High School will be moved to Sunday.
The site at the Fairfax County Government Center in Virginia, as well as the four district health department sites are all closed.
A Winter Storm Warning has been issued for almost the entire DMV. The significant winter storm will impact the region Thursday into Friday morning. Those impacts include snow, sleet and freezing rain, all of which could make travel difficult to nearly impossible at times.
