COVID-19 vaccinations underway for region’s public safety, public schools employees

Richmond Raceway, Westwood Pharmacy supporting effort

A mass effort to provide COVID-19 vaccinations to public safety and public schools employees in the region is underway at Richmond Raceway in Henrico County with help from a local pharmacy.

The event kicked off Tuesday and is expected to provide vaccinations to more than 4,000 employees of the city of Richmond and the counties of Goochland, Hanover and Henrico through Friday. Local health districts are coordinating the effort with the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) and expect to deliver thousands of more shots over the coming weeks depending on vaccine supplies.

“This event at Richmond Raceway represents a major milestone in our region’s ongoing fight against the COVID-19 pandemic,” Henrico County Manager John A. Vithoulkas said. “By beginning to vaccinate our police officers, firefighters and other safety personnel as well as our teachers and other public school employees, we are taking a step toward protecting our most vulnerable frontline workers and those they serve as well as helping to restore our public schools for safe in-person learning.”
