RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Virginia’s health districts continue adding more mobile vaccination clinic locations. This allows health districts to continue to reach people in rural or underserved communities.
As of May 21, 52.4 % of Virginia adults have been vaccinated. Across the state, nearly 7.8 million vaccines have been administered.
The Southside Health District has teamed up with the Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM) and other supporting partners, for two additional dates for its mobile vaccination clinics.
The added clinics are:
Sunday, May 23
1 to 4 p.m. Brunswick County Conference Center
100 Athletic Field Road
Lawrenceville, VA 23868
Tuesday, June 1
3:30 to 7:30 p.m. Estes Center
316 N Main St. Chase City, VA 23924
The mobile clinics help districts reach unvaccinated Virginians where it is convenient for them. This weekend, Chickahominy Health District will be at the Ashland Farmer’s Market on Saturday, May 22 for a pop-up vaccine clinic.
Vaccines are free and identification is not required. The Pfizer vaccine will be administered which means anyone 12 and up can get the shot. Children under 18 will need a parent or guardian present.
The Piedmont Health District has also announced more dates for their second week of mobile vaccination clinics. No appointments are needed.
This health district plans to give out the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, eliminating the need for a person to return for a second-dose shot.
