VIRGINIA BEACH — A free Covid-19 community vaccination clinic is scheduled for Thursday, July 29, at the Senior Resource Center, Inc., in rural Virginia Beach.
The clinic is meant to make it easier for people in the southern city, including rural residents, to get their vaccination against the novel coronavirus, which can cause the disease Covid-19.
People are asked to register in advance, but walk-ins are welcome, according to an announcement by the city. Again, there is no cost to be vaccinated during the clinic.
“I think it’s a great thing,” said City Councilmember Barbara Henley, who represents the Princess Anne District and requested a clinic for rural residents. “I really hope it’s an opportunity for some of the folks to slip in there when it’s easy.”
The clinic is hosted by the Virginia Emergency Medical Services Department in partnership with the Virginia Beach Public Health Department.
Clinic hours are from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., Thursday, July 29, at the Senior Resource Center, Inc., 912 Princess Anne Road. The clinic is open to people who are 12 years old or older, thought minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
