NORFOLK, Va. - More opportunities to get the COVID-19 vaccine are coming to Military Circle Mall in Norfolk next week.

After a second week of robust response to the first COVID-19 community testing event at the mall, where 194 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.

The demand for testing has increased across Hampton Roads as COVID-19 cases continue to rise.

Dr. Parham Jaberi, acting health director for the Norfolk Department of Public Health, reports that the number of individuals 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 [August 31] there were 340 individuals presenting for vaccinations, and 215 on Thursday [September 29]," Dr. Jaberi said.

This includes immunocompromised people who are now seeking a third dose.
