RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) – Diversity Richmond is partnering with the Virginia Department of Health to hold a COVID-19 vaccine clinic on Wednesday.
There will be two sessions: One from 9:30-11:30 a.m. and another from 1-3:30 p.m.
This event is open to anyone aged 18 or older. The Moderna vaccine will be administered.
No appointment is necessary, and those who get their shot will also get a follow-up appointment for their second dose.
“We are grateful to Diversity Richmond for their long standing partnership,” says Amy Popovich, Nurse Manager at RHHD. “They’ve been welcoming to us and the community, offering their support since the beginning of the pandemic.”
Bill Harrison, President and Executive Director of Diversity Richmond says that the organization works to respond to the needs of the LGBTQ+ community, this includes providing COVID-19 resources.
“I think one of our collective strengths in the LGBTQ+ community is a deep sense of connection, love, and support for one another,” explains James Millner, Director of VA Pride. “COVID-19 vaccines are slowly making it possible for us to be together in person again.”
