ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - The former JCPenney store at the Danville Mall is being used to administer up to 3,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccines per day, starting Monday, March 15.

The center will be open six days per week from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. for those with appointments. No walk-in visitors looking for a vaccine will be accepted.

Governor Ralph Northam announced Danville would join Portsmouth and Petersburg as cities with regional community vaccination centers. Funding from FEMA grants are supporting the continued response to COVID-19. The areas chosen were selected based on an equity analysis to determine which sites had the best access to vulnerable populations.

Efforts at other local or smaller-scale sites are still being utilized.
