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

Sign up here for our free newsletter that tells you about the newest stories, three mornings each week.

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:

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
