Chesterfield Health District Offering COVID-19 Vaccines to Walk-Ins

(CHESTERFIELD, Va.)  — The Virginia Department of Health’s Chesterfield Health District (CHD) is offering the COVID-19 vaccine to anyone 16 and older at the Community Vaccination Clinic at Virginia State University (VSU). Walk-ins are not only welcome, but encouraged and can register on-site.

“Now is the time to stop in and get a vaccine with little or no wait,” said Dr. Alexander Samuel, director of CHD.  “You can hit the clinic on the way to or from work.  Currently, we can provide both first and second doses of the Pfizer vaccine to anyone aged 16 and older.”

The VSU clinic is open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.  The clinic is located in VSU’s Multi-Purpose Center at 20809 2nd Avenue in Petersburg.

If you are coming for your second dose, please bring your vaccine card to confirm the date and type of vaccine you received in your first dose.

A parent or guardian must accompany anyone under 18.

The VSU will continue to offer vaccines through May 29.  In order to get both doses at the VSU clinic in this timeframe, you must get your first dose by Saturday, May 8.
