You will need to contact the clinic you select to schedule an appointment. The clinic will verify your eligibility to be vaccinated. You must have an appointment to receive a COVID-19 vaccination.
Nannies fall under “childcare” essential workers and are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in Phase 1B. Please act as soon as possible, vaccine quantities will be limited at first. Childcare workers are eligible to receive the vaccine now in some jurisdictions, however, appointments are limited. In some cases, employers may need to pre-register their employee(s).
It is important to sign up for alerts from your local health district to know when you or your employee are eligible to register for the vaccine. To register to receive the vaccine, you need to go to your local county’s health department’s website to sign up and fill out paperwork. Some people have also had luck calling hotlines.
Alexandria – This form is for employers from 1B priority phase to register employees. Employers and nannies can fill this form out together. The employer will then be given instructions on when and how to upload their employee’s information for vaccine appointments.
Please note, ZIP codes 22303, 22306, 22307, 22308, 22309, 22310, 22313, and 22315 belong within Fairfax County

Thank you GTM for this helpful information:
Household Employment Law Updates
Nanny Tax Threshold Increases for 2020
The Social Security Administration recently released its 2020 Employment Coverage Threshold for household employees. Next year’s coverage threshold increases by $100 to $2,200. If a nanny (or other household employee like a housekeeper or an in-home senior caregiver) earns $2,200 or more in cash wages in 2020, Social Security and Medicare taxes, commonly called FICA taxes or “nanny taxes” must be paid by the family and the employee. Earnings below this threshold aren’t taxable under Social Security.

Please be aware! Safety first
Are you aware of Virginia’s new car seat laws taking effect July 1, 2019? Here’s what you need to know about having your child in #therightseat:
- All children up to age 8 must be in a properly secured child safety restraint device which meets the standards adopted by the United States Department of Transportation. Children must remain rear-facing until the age of 2 or until they reach the minimum weight requirement for a forward-facing child safety seat.
- All car seat devices must be placed in the back seat of the car. If the vehicle does not have a back seat (pick up truck, older model car), the car seat can only be placed in the front passenger side. The passenger airbags must be deactivated.
The new law will go into effect July 1, 2019, to allow time for public awareness.
Has anyone seen this or tried it out? If this works, I’d start including this on all the baby registries! Who is willing to try it for me?
Calling all moms, we're here to help you pump.
