(UPDATE) New River Health District Announces UPDATED Mobile Vaccination Clinic Schedules and Locations

(CHRISTIANSBURG, Va.)  — The Virginia Department of Health’s New River Health District, in coordination with the Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM) and other supporting partners, has announced updated dates and locations for an ongoing series of mobile vaccination clinics.

These mobile clinics will offer free COVID-19 vaccines to those age 18 and up 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.

The dates, times and locations of these mobile clinics are attached.

These vendor-operated, mobile vaccination clinics will move from place to place to support local health department efforts in the New River Health District and across the state.

These mobile clinics will offer the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, thus eliminating the need for a mobile clinic to have to return to a particular area for second-dose shots. For more information about the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, please talk to your healthcare provider or visit www.vdh.virginia.gov/content/uploads/sites/191/2021/05/JJInformation.pdf.

To find a vaccination site near you, please visit vaccinate.virginia.gov or vaccinefinder.org. You can learn more about the vaccine, its safety and answers to frequently asked questions at VDH’s website and CDC’s website.
