Local Health Districts Continue Additional Mobile Vaccination Clinics June 28 thru June 30
(Norfolk, Va.) — The Virginia Department of Health’s local health districts, in coordination with the Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM) and other supporting partners, has announced the dates and locations of upcoming mobile vaccination clinics.
These mobile clinics will offer free COVID-19 vaccines for those 12 and older in a series of smaller and more local clinics, primarily in rural and underserved areas where vaccine access can be challenging. They are designed to reach unvaccinated Virginians at times and places that are closer and more convenient.
