The White House announced Friday it is partnering with Virginia to build a new major Community Vaccination Center (CVC) at the old Macy’s at Military Circle Mall.
“The goal of establishing joint federal pilot centers is to continue to expand the rate of vaccinations in an efficient, effective and equitable manner, with an explicit focus on making sure that communities with a high risk of COVID-19 exposure and infection are not left behind.”
The site will administer approximately 3,000 shots a day (21,000 doses per week), and the center will operate seven days a week, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
VOLUNTEER Hampton Roads is asking for volunteers to help with non-clinical duties including greeting people, registration, and observation. Anyone who would like to volunteer can register on VOLUNTEER Hampton Roads’ website.
