Mass vaccination site set to open inside Tysons Corner mall

On Tuesday, a mass vaccination center will open inside Tysons Corner Center in Virginia.

Set up inside the old Lord & Taylor store, the Fairfax County clinic will have the capacity to administer 3,000 shots a day.

“Please get vaccinated,” Gov. Ralph Northam said during a Monday tour of the facility. He was joined by Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, who said the center is easy for anyone to access.

“It’s free,” Warner said. “There will be people who speak your language.”

The new center features video technology that will offer translations in Spanish, Korean and other languages to help people understand the process.

“If you love your wife, if you love your children, if you love your husband, if you love your community, get vaccinated as soon as you possibly can,” said Rep. Don Beyer during Monday’s tour.

Everyone in Virginia who’s 16 and older is now eligible to be vaccinated, and Northam said the commonwealth’s goal is to give a shot to everyone who wants one by the end of May.

The large-scale vaccination center opens Tuesday inside Tysons Corner Center.

It will open inside what was the Lord & Taylor store at Tysons Corner Center.

For now, vaccinations are available by appointment only at the clinic. And initially, it will prioritize people in Phase 1 of the vaccination process — favoring those more vulnerable due to age, job or health condition.

Those with an appointment will check in here. Several bus routes — as well as Metro’s Silver Line — pass near the clinic site.

According to Fairfax County officials, the site will have the capacity to vaccinate 3,000 people a day, as supplies allow.

You still need an appointment to get vaccinated. Sign up on the county’s website. Once the center starts offering Phase 2 appointments, you’ll be able to schedule them at
