Looking for Vaccine Info?

When it comes to health, everyone wants reliable, up-to-date information. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has information that can help answer questions you might have about vaccines.

Go to CDC.gov

Richmond Sunlight prohibits comments that spread propaganda about COVID-19 or COVID vaccines. We will promptly delete any claims that COVID isn’t serious, or claims that vaccines are unsafe or ineffective.
