Level of COVID-19 Transmission: High

Based on updated guidance released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) last week, the Fairfax Health Department recommends that everyone, including individuals fully vaccinated against COVID-19, wear a mask in public indoor settings. 

As the number of COVID-19 cases has continued to increase with the spread of the Delta variant, this recommendation is based on the Fairfax Health District moving from moderate level of COVID-19 transmission to substantial transmission. Learn more about this and other preventative steps you should take.

NEW: Third Dose Pfizer and Moderna Vaccinations Now Available for Individuals Who Are Immunocompromised

Find full details on the Fairfax Health website; in short, a third dose should be considered for people with moderate to severe immune compromise due to a medical condition or receipt of immunosuppressive medications or treatments. These conditions and treatments include but are not limited to:

  • Active treatment for a solid tumor and cancers of the blood.
  • Receipt of solid-organ transplant and taking medications to suppress the immune system.
  • Receipt of stem cell transplant within the last two years or taking medicine to suppress the immune system.
  • Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (e.g., DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome).
  • Advanced or untreated HIV infection.
  • Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids (i.e., ≥20mg prednisone or equivalent per day), or other drugs that may suppress the immune system.

There is no proof of medical condition required to receive a third dose of vaccine at one of the Fairfax County Health Department vaccination sites, and individuals will not be asked to provide medical documentation. People 12 years and older can receive the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, and individuals 18 years and older can receive the Moderna vaccine.
