West Virginia’s health agency has bought 16 vans to provide free COVID-19 testing and vaccines at school and community events, officials said.
A grant from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention paid for the vans, the state Department of Health and Human Resources said in a news release Monday. Some of the vans have already been deployed to health departments. Others will be delivered in the coming months.
Schools that are interested in having a van come to an event should contact their local health department, the statement said.
