PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — Virginia vaccination coordinator Dr. Danny Avula will join Hampton Roads clergy members via Zoom on Tuesday to encourage people to get their COVID-19 vaccine.

The meeting will start at 10 a.m.. and advanced registration is required here. Guests are asked to sign in at 9:45 a.m.

It comes a day after the FDA authorized emergency use of the Pfizer vaccine for children as young as 12. The vaccine was previously authorized for those as young as 16.

More than 3 million Virginians are now fully vaccinated, more than a third of the population, but demand for the vaccine has fallen some.
