Updates to outpatient care at Massey due to COVID-19
At VCU Massey Cancer Center we have implemented changes in our clinics to mitigate the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and keep our patients and medical teams safe.
VCU Massey Cancer Center is now offering the COVID-19 vaccine to cancer patients in its Dalton Oncology and Stony Point Hematology-Oncology Clinics, beginning with patients who are aged 65 and older with in-person oncology appointments, as directed by the Virginia Department of Health.

VCU Medical Center began COVID-19 vaccinations of its first front-line team members Wednesday afternoon. Robert Winn, M.D., director of VCU Massey Cancer Center, was one of seven people who volunteered to be the first to receive the new vaccine.
As of Friday, January 8, VCU Massey Cancer Center is suspending all in-person visits to hospitalized patients for the duration of the third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We want to continue to keep everyone onsite at VCU Massey Cancer Center safe during COVID-19. To do this, we are following the face mask guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and are requiring everyone in our environment to wear a face mask.
