Riverside Health System Hosting Free Flu and Covid-19 Vaccination Clinics

Riverside Health System will host several free vaccination clinics for both covid-19 and the flu in coming weeks across Hampton Roads.

The clinics will be either drive-thru or walk-up to enable patients 12 and older to receive both the flu vaccine as well as the Pfizer covid-19 vaccine at the same time. This includes second and third doses of the covid-19 vaccine with proof of prior vaccination. In addition, covid-19 booster shots will be available to those 65 and older as well as at-risk individuals and healthcare workers.

Masks will be required during the clinics and temperature checks and safety screenings will be required for those receiving a flu shot. Anyone who has not yet had the covid-19 vaccine is encouraged to attend one of the following free clinics:
