President Biden Visits Neighborhood Health COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic
On April 6, 2021, Neighborhood Health had the honor of hosting a visit from President Joe Biden to our COVID-19 vaccine clinic at Virginia Theological Seminary’s Immanuel Chapel in Alexandria. President Biden toured the clinic and spoke with staff, patients, and members of the faith community who have partnered with us to increase equity in the vaccine rollout. Neighborhood Health was selected for the visit because of our robust COVID-19 vaccine program targeting vulnerable communities.
