Richmond, VA – Virginia Union University and the Virginia Department of Health will be collaborating to launch a Community-Based Vaccination Site on the VUU campus to provide Covid-19 vaccinations. Beginning Friday May 7th, the facility on the Virginia Union campus will offer free vaccinations to all persons 16 years and older.

“This is what we envisioned when we said we were unveiling a new Virginia Union University”, said Dr. Hakim Lucas President and CEO of Virginia Union University. “We are a university dedicated to serving the community. We dropped prices to ensure education was more affordable. We have a Capital Area Health Network (CAHN) on campus that is open to the community for their health care needs, and now we are going to get vaccines to residents that surround our university.”
