Richmond School Vaccination Event

The Richmond City Health District's annual Back to School Event for Richmond residents is Friday, August 22nd, 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Health District Clinic, located at 400 East Cary Street. For easy access directly into the clinic, use the front entrance on Main Street (near corner of 4th and Main Streets).  Walk-in; no appointment needed.

All immunizations needed for school-entry and daycare will be available.  Also, Tdap booster shots required for students entering the 6th grade will be available. Parents are reminded that 6th graders will not be allowed to attend class without documentation/proof showing that they have received a Tdap vaccination.

Also, free physicals for school-entry and Head-Start will be provided in cooperation with the VCU School of Nursing. For school physicals, use the Cary Street entrance.

Parents will need to bring their child's shot record and insurance card, if they have insurance. Eligibility screening is offered for persons without insurance.
