Immunization Program

Through this program, the Health District seeks to insure that every child in Richmond is fully immunized against infectious diseases by the age of two. Immunizations that include required school shots, flu shots, tuberculosis and vaccination for other infectious diseases are provided for children, adolescents, and adults. In addition, the immunization program engages in educational outreach efforts such as classes and health fairs in order to communicate the importance of immunizations. Call (804) 482-5500 for the immunization clinic schedule or 482-5487 for information about the Immunization Action Program.
