ROCKBRIDGE COUNTY, Va. – Now that Virginia has approved the Pfizer vaccine for anyone 12 and older, health leaders are working hard to get shots into those arms.

On Friday, the Central Shenandoah Health District announced three upcoming COVID-19 vaccination events in the next three weeks.

For the next three Tuesdays, from 9:30 a.m to 12:30 p.m. people can book appointments to be vaccinated at the old Peebles store at 770 North Lee Highway, Lexington.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer the Pfizer vaccine to our adolescents aged 12-15,” said CSHD Health District Director Dr. Laura Kornegay. “Getting your adolescent vaccinated will not only protect the health of your child and family but it can also bring them one step closer to enjoying the activities they have missed during the pandemic.”

While appointments are encouraged, walk-ins are welcome as supply allows.
