HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) — Anyone 18 and older can schedule an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccine appointment at three upcoming clinics at the Hampton Roads Convention Center.

According to the City of Hampton, the clinics will be Friday, April 9, as well as April 14 and 15.

The clinics are run by Operation Vaccinate the Peninsula, which is a regional effort between hospital systems, the Virginia Health Department and six localities.

“Residents are urged to get vaccinated as more transmissible and more serious strains of the virus are causing Covid-19 surges in the Midwest and Northeast, as well as in many other countries,” the city said.

Originally, the clinic planned to use the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at Thursday’s event, but the Virginia Department of Health is pausing J&J vaccination clinics due to the FDA and CDC recommendation. Click here for more information on that announcement. Instead the  Pfizer vaccine will be giving on Thursday.

Here’s information and registration details for all upcoming clinics:
