“Adding another method to get an appointment helps us vaccinate more people as quickly as possible.

The New River Health District (NRHD) includes the counties of Montgomery, Giles, Floyd, and Pulaski, as well as the City of Radford.
Each clinic will be hosted by Blacksburg and Christiansburg Pharmacies and will offer the Moderna vaccine.
