Average Daily Vaccinations in Arlington Remain Above 1,000

More than 1,000 vaccine doses are being administered per day in Arlington, on average.

The seven-day trailing average of vaccine doses given in Arlington has remained above 1,000 for the past 10 days. As of this morning, it stands at 1,139.

Just over 31,500 Arlingtonians have received at least one vaccine dose, while just over 16,000 have been fully vaccinated, according to Virginia Dept. of Health data.

The county last week announced that it would work to ensure that more people eligible for vaccinations get the shots, via a partnership with Arlington Free Clinic. From a press release:

Under the partnership agreement, the County’s Public Health Division will provide a limited portion of its weekly vaccine allocation to AFC to increase vaccine access to people who are uninsured or underinsured. Vaccines will be allocated to those who meet AFC client criteria and who are already eligible to receive it based on VDH priority guidelines. All vaccines will be by appointment only.

“This partnership is a way to ensure our most vulnerable populations — those disproportionately affected by COVID-19 — have more equitable access to vaccines when they are eligible,” said Dr. Reuben Varghese, Public Health Director for Arlington County.

More retail pharmacies, from CVS to Safeway, have recently started offering vaccine appointments in Arlington and across Virginia, increasing supply.

Throughout the Commonwealth, 17.5% of the population has received at least one vaccine dose, according to VDH data. Arlington trails that figure, with around 13.3% of the population having received at least one dose, per figures reported by VDH.

Coronavirus cases in the county, meanwhile, have hovered around an average of 40 per day since the start of the month. The seven-day trailing average stands at 39.1 as of this morning.

Seven new COVID-related hospitalizations have been reported over the past week, along with 10 new deaths, as VDH continues to tally backlogged death certificates from earlier in the year. A total of 238 people — just over 0.1% of Arlington’s population — have died of COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic.
