The Arlington Committee of 100 fosters open and vigorous discussion of issues involving all facets of community life in Arlington. The Committee's monthly forums are open to all and provide a non-partisan setting in which issues of local, regional, and state interest are addressed by experts, with audience participation in lively Q&A sessions.
As 2020 wound to a close, the FDA gave authorization for the use of two vaccines against the novel coronavirus that has dominated our lives for the past 11 months. The Virginia Department of Health has created a plan for distributing the vaccines, with priority groups set by risk.
To update us on the vaccination process and way forward in Arlington, the Committee of 100 welcomes:
Dr. Reuben Varghese, Arlington County Public Health Director
Nancy White, Arlington Free Clinic Executive Director & Co-Chair of the Arlington Complete Vaccination Committee

2021 begins with much uncertainty. The approval of a vaccine means that we can see the light at the end of the coronavirus tunnel, but it could be the middle of the year before it's been distributed widely enough to get back to life as usual. Meanwhile, our economy and public services remain under pandemic restrictions, about to enter their 11th month, which makes for complicated and challenging decisions about if and how businesses and their employees can persevere through to the end.
As the second in our two-part program on Arlington’s economy, join the Committee of 100 to begin 2021 with a look at regional and local trends, what they signal for the year ahead, and what Arlington’s economy needs for success in the new year.
