RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The Piedmont Health District said it is expanding the times and locations of its mobile COVID-19 vaccination clinics.

“We continue to be excited to offer additional opportunities for our communities to get their COVID-19 vaccination, ones that are closer to home or work,” said Dr. Sulola Adekoya, acting director of the Piedmont Health District.  “We are thankful to all our community partners that offer space to host these mobile clinics.”

These events provide the single-dose Johnson and Johnson vaccines for people 18-years and older with no appointment needed. The health department said they will occur in primarily rural and underserved areas where getting a vaccine is harder.
