Richmond

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The mass vaccination site at Arthur Ashe Center in Richmond is closing at the end of the month.

Richmond and Henrico Health District Public Information Officer Cat Long said the closure is happening to increase COVID-19 vaccine accessibility and not due to lack of supply.

Long said the health district is setting up four community hubs around the city and county. Having smaller sites will make vaccines more accessible, she added.
