NORFOLK, Va. - More opportunities to receive the COVID-19 vaccination are coming to Military Circle Mall next week.

After a robust response to the first COVID-19 community testing event at the mall, where 119 people were tested, the Virginia Department of Health will be providing testing opportunities each week through the month of September and possibly beyond. This is in addition to the ongoing vaccination efforts being held at the mall on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Dr. Parham Jaberi, Acting Health Director for the Norfolk Department of Public Health, reports that the number of people interested in vaccinations has been on the rise over the last several weeks.

“While the MCM saw anywhere between 69-197 patients in July, this past Tuesday (8/24) there were 353 individuals presenting for vaccinations, and 334 on Thursday [August 26]," he said.

This includes immunocompromised people now looking to get a third dose.
