(Norfolk-Va.) – With the continued rise in COVID-19 cases and the spread of the Delta Virus across the Commonwealth, public health officials urge residents to get vaccinated as soon as possible to prevent further spread of illness. The virus is taking advantage of those unvaccinated. All three vaccines are available.
"Getting vaccinated remains the most important step in protecting yourself and others. In Virginia, vaccine breakthrough infections still represent a very small percentage of cases. At this time, the large majority of hospitalizations and deaths due to COVID-19 have occurred in unvaccinated individuals” 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). First and second doses are welcome. The clinics next week will be held on Tuesday, August 10, 2021, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Thursday, August 12, 2021 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Walk-ins will be accepted, but advanced registration is encouraged.
