RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Get a vaccine and a sweet treat at two upcoming vaccination events in the Richmond area.
The Richmond and Henrico Health Districts are partnering up with Charm School Study Hall and Dalia’s Dulceria y Palateria Michoacana to offer COVID-19 vaccines. Those who get vaccinated will receive a free ice cream cone.
The vaccination events will be held this Friday, June 11 from 5 to 7 p.m.
- Charm School Study Hall, 4930 Forest Hill Avenue Suite D
- Dalia’s Dulceria Palateria Michoacana, 7310 Staples Mill Road
“These events are a great way to cross off getting vaccinated from your to-do list while enjoying
a summer Friday evening,” explains Joanna Cirillo, Public Health Nurse Supervisor. “Everyone
knows getting a shot hurts less when it’s followed up by an ice cream!”
People who aren’t ready to get vaccinated are welcome to attend the event to get their questions answered by a medical professional.
Both Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines will be offered.
