“Adding another method to get an appointment helps us vaccinate more people as quickly as possible. These different options give us flexibility to adapt to changes in vaccine supply and make sure we can use all of the doses and volunteers we have as efficiently as possible.”

Dr. Noelle Bissel, District Director of the New River Health District

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.
