Be Well Virginia: COVID-19 Vaccine Part 1
NVFP is offering a special event “BE WELL Virginia” Virtual Town Hall on Thursday, January 7th, 2021. Much hope rests on this vaccine being one of the keys to ending the pandemic, and the providers at NVFP plan to field your inquiries about its development, its distribution, its safety, and the science behind its effectiveness.
