RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) – Richmond and Henrico Health Districts are making it even easier for you to roll up your sleeve for the COVID-19 vaccine.

On Friday, June 25 health leaders are launching a Street to Street event along the 25th street corridor in Richmond’s East End for a full day of COVID-19 vaccine appointments, outreach and education.
