RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Now that the Richmond and Henrico Health Districts are no longer operating a mass vaccination site at George Wythe High School, they’ve announced the addition of four smaller vaccine hubs.
Starting in September, there will be opportunities to get vaccinated at four different locations, each operating one day of the week.
People living in or near Richmond and Henrico can get their vaccine at these hubs or at ongoing pop up events.
The hubs will be at the following locations on a specific schedule:

- Wednesdays, 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.: Henrico Recreation Center (1440 N Laburnum Ave)
- Thursdays, 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.: RHHD Downtown Location (400 E Cary St)
- Fridays, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.: RHHD Henrico West Location (8600 Dixon Powers Dr)
