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.

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.
