Prince William Health District mobile vaccination clinic in Manassas

Prince William Health District’s mobile vaccination clinic. 

The Prince William Health District continues to make COVID-19 vaccines available on a walk-up basis for those who need first, second and third doses. The health district is not yet administering COVID-19 “booster shots,” but will be making more information available on those soon.

Manassas Mall COVID-19 vaccine clinic

The COVID-19 vaccine clinic at Manassas Mall is located between the Uptown Alley entertainment  center and Macy's, near the intersection of Sudley Road and Rixlew Lane in Manassas. Look for the orange sign outside the door marked "Manassas Mall."

Third doses are technically not booster shots but rather extra doses approved for people with compromised immune systems who may not have fully responded to the first two doses of the vaccine.

Booster shots, which achieved final approval from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials on Friday, Sept. 24, are intended to give an extra boost of immunity to those who with a higher risk of complications due to COVID-19 or whose occupations put them at a higher risk of contracting the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.

Those eligible for boosters include anyone who completed the two-dose Pfizer shot series at least six months ago and fall into these groups:

  • Adults who are 65 and older.
  • Adults over the age of 18 who have a medical condition that put them at a higher risk of severe illness with COVID-19. Those conditions include: obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, chronic kidney disease and others.
  • People who live or work in a setting that places them at a high risk for exposure to COVID-19, including health care workers, teachers and people who work in congregate settings such as grocery stories, group homes, shelters, jails and prisons.

Those eligible for booster shots should be able to find them now at private pharmacies such as CVS, Walmart and Walgreens. 

The health district’s vaccine schedule this week is as follows. No appointments are required. Walk-ins are accepted as long as supplies lasts, weather permitting.
