VTS Immanuel Chapel Opens Doors to Vaccine Clinic for Underserved Community

Feb 11, 2021 | Stories from the Diocese

The Virginia Theological Seminary is lending its Immanuel Chapel to house a vaccination clinic for the underserved in the community.

“Where normally the focus of a Chapel is on our spiritual health,” said Dean Ian Markham, “from time to time we need our Chapel to function as a place for physical health. This is one of those seasons.” The chapel is currently not being used for worship services due to the pandemic.

The chapel clinic, which will serve approximately 200 people each Tuesday and Friday, is run by Neighborhood Health to provide vaccinations for their patients, many of whom lack health insurance.

The clinic will run through March 19, but VTS is open to extending their time on campus if there is greater need.
