RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The Virginia Department of Health announced on Monday that all of its Community Vaccination Centers (CVCs) will remain closed on Tuesday due to winter weather. The Richmond and Henrico Health Districts (RHHD) is also cancelling its COVID-19 testing events.

VDH initially announced the cancellations on Sunday in anticipation of Monday’s snow storm. The closures impacted appointments at CVCs in nine locations statewide.

The following clinics will be closed in our area on Tuesday, Jan. 4.

Richmond and Henrico Health Districts
