Free COVID-19 Vaccinations July 27 and July 29 at Military Circle Mall
(Norfolk-Va.) – With the continued rise in COVID-19 cases across the Commonwealth, public health officials urge residents to become vaccinated as soon as possible to prevent further spread of illness. It’s not too late to get vaccinated.
“All members of the community, 12 years of age and above, should become fully vaccinated as soon as possible. Those delaying vaccinations are putting themselves, and potentially those around them at risk,” said Dr. Parham Jaberi, Acting Health Director for the Norfolk and Virginia Beach Health Departments.
To facilitate access to vaccinations, VDH continues its regional vaccination collaborative at the Military Circle Mall (located at 880 N Military Highway). This successful effort will continue into August. The clinics next week will be held on Tuesday, July 27, 2021, from 1:30 to 7:30 p.m. and Thursday, July 29, 2021 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Walk-ins will be accepted, but advanced registration is encouraged. Those who would like to register for a specific time should visit the links below:
Vaccines are available for individuals ages 12 and up. Children 12-17 are authorized for the Pfizer vaccine only. Anyone under the age of 18 will need to have a parent or guardian accompanying them in order to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Pfizer (two dose), Moderna (two dose) and J&J (one dose) vaccines will be available.
Masks are required while attending the vaccination clinic at the Military Circle Mall. Please also bring identification (ID) with you; accommodations may be made for those without an ID. There is no cost to receive the vaccine.
For those who are seeking a second vaccine dose, please be sure to bring your COVID-19 vaccination record card. If you have misplaced or lost your card, you may visit: www.vdh.virginia.gov/immunization/immunization-record-request-form/ to request a new record.
Getting a Covid-19 vaccine is the most important thing that can be done to stop the spread of the virus.
