CHESAPEAKE, Va. - The Mount at Chesapeake is partnering with the Virginia Department of Health for a free vaccination clinic.

The first 100 vaccine recipients will receive a $25 gas voucher.

This comes as The Mount is gearing up for their first Sunday service fully in person since the pandemic began.

"We're coming back in person for the first Sunday in April and we wanted to make sure people would be safe as we come back and gather together, but we also wanted to make sure people can get there by providing them with some gas," explained Shannon Etheridge, the chief of staff for The Mount at Chesapeake. "So it's a double blessing."

The clinic will be held from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Signet Family Life Center (884 Bells Mill Road Chesapeake, VA 23322) in Chesapeake.

Flu shots will be available alongside COVID vaccines and boosters.

Buffalow Family and Friends community pantry is also attending today's clinic. The organization is handing out free bags of food and essentials.
