PACEM, a group that provides shelter to Charlottesville's homeless, is teaming up with UVa Medical Center to provide medical exams.

The group will provide medical checks, flu shots and other vaccines to area homeless twice a year.

The clinics rotate through local churches, setting up cots for a week or longer.

During the winter months, between 30 and 50 of Charlottesville's homeless take shelter with the clinic each night.

All health services provided through UVa Medical Center are administered by volunteer doctors, nurses and healthcare students.
