Covid-19 Vaccination site /Walter Reed Community Center

Arlington County's Department of Human Services Public Health Division set up a Covid-19 vaccination site at the Walter Reed Community Center in the Columbia Pike corridor. About 1,000 people a day receive inoculations. On this day, the Moderna vaccine was being used.

In the interest of safety and privacy, no photographs of patients were allowed. These pictures document the preparation for the mission, the site set-up, the materials, and the personnel involved.

Thanks to Cara O’Donnell of the Public Health Division for arranging access to the site. 

And thanks especially to these steadfast County staffers, medical professional, and volunteers. 

You are our heroes.

La ColectiVA/ Cacerolazo | Anti-ICE rally -Tyrol Hill Park

La ColectiVA organized a cacerolazo (pots and pans rally) for an anti-ICE demonstration at Tyrol Hill Park, which proceeded through the very diverse Arlington Mill community and along Columbia Pike.

From La ColectiVA: We "demand Arlington County end collaboration with ICE. Through community organizing in Arlington, we have learned of multiple instances of migrant community members being criminalized and detained by Arlington County police agencies and then transferred to ICE custody for deportation proceedings. A fact sheet we released with NIP-NLG last month also shows the existing voluntary mechanisms that Arlington County police agencies use to maintain their roles in the incarceration to deportation pipeline. We demand the Arlington County board take immediate action to end all collaboration with ICE and to join us in calling on the Sheriff to do the same. "

Face masks and physical distancing protocols were observed.
