CHRISTIANSBURG — The New River Valley Public Health Task Force is now providing COVID-19 vaccinations to those ages 16 to 64 with certain underlying medical conditions and has announced a new series of clinics across the district.
After operating a vaccine clinic continuously for more than two months at Blue Ridge Church in Christiansburg, this week’s schedule includes clinics at Blacksburg High School on Wednesday and Grace Life Church in Christiansburg on Thursday.
Pre-registration and appointments are required. To pre-register, visit www.NRVRoadtoWellness.com.
The task force is especially seeking to locate anyone age 65 and up who wishes to receive a vaccine but does not yet have an appointment. Anyone meeting those criteria should call the Vaccine Scheduling Center at 540-838-8222.
“The entire New River Valley, particularly the 60,000 that have been vaccinated thus far – and all those they now protect – owes the people of Blue Ridge Church a huge expression of gratitude for their commitment to our community’s collective well-being,” said Noelle Bissell, M.D., director of the New River Health District. “They have been a faithful and generous resource, in service to our efforts to limit the spread of COVID illnesses, hospitalizations and deaths.”
