COVID-19 vaccine clinic coming to Southgate Community Center on April 8

A pop-up vaccination clinic will be open at Southgate Community Center in Reston on Thursday (April 8) for a portion of eligible county residents.

The clinic is for residents 65 and up as well as individuals aged 16 to 64 with underlying medical conditions. It will run from 1:30-4:30 p.m. and is in partnership with the Fairfax County Health Department.

Appointments are on a first-come, first-serve basis.

To make an appointment, county residents can go to the community center at 12125 Pinecrest Road or call 703-860-0676 to sign up.

Supply is very limited, though, with only 120 doses available for those looking for their first shot.

In fact, appointments almost were already filled up, as of late Tuesday afternoon, Southgate Community Center director Richard Cabellos told Reston Now.

The community center was just alerted about 48 hours ago that it will be hosting the pop-up clinic, but few appointments remain available due to Southgate’s walkable location and demand.

“It shows how many people want vaccines in Reston,” Cabellos said.

This will be the second pop-up clinic at the community center. The first one took place on March 18 and had only 60 appointments available. Those, too, got snapped up quick.

Residents who got their first shot on March 18 are being invited back for their second in the morning of April 8.

The doses for those in need of their second shot have been set aside and do not factor into the 120 slots available for first-timers.

Cabellos says there are plans to do another pop-up clinic in the future, due to popularity and the ease in which the community center can set up a clinic on short notice.
