NORFOLK, Va. - Military Circle Mall's Community Vaccination Center (CVC) has announced a new holiday schedule and new hours after New Year's.

The CVC is located at the former Macy's at Military Circle, located at 880 N. Military Highway.

The center will be closed for the holidays starting Thursday, December 23, through December 27 and from December 31 to January 2.

On December 28 and 29, the center will be open during the regular hours of 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. On December 30, the center will only be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Starting on Jan. 4, the CVC will begin operating with new hours, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.

Testing at the vaccination center will continue to be on Mondays from 2 to 6 p.m.

“This was first started at the Norfolk CVC and has been a success at the other CVC’s across the state,” said Virginia Department of Health Public Information Officer Larry Hill.

All COVID-19 vaccinations, pediatric and adult, will continue to be offered at the mall. The vaccine remains free and open to those working or living in other jurisdictions including those traveling from other states.
