Signs have been posted at waterway entry points of concern. Please follow our Facebook page for the most up to date information.

COVID Vaccination Update

The Chesapeake Health Department will offer FREE COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters every 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month from 10:00am to 5:30pm for ages 6 months and up. No appointment needed. Just walk in! For more information call 757.382.8631.

Everyone ages 6 months and older in the United States is recommended to receive a COVID-19 primary series vaccination for the prevention of COVID-19; monovalent mRNA COVID-19 vaccines (i.e., Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech) and Novavax COVID-19 Vaccine are recommended.

CDC recommends that people ages 5 years and older receive one updated (bivalent) booster if it has been at least 2 months since their last COVID-19 vaccine dose, whether that was:

  • Their final primary series dose, or
  • An original (monovalent) booster

People who have gotten more than one original (monovalent) booster are also recommended to get an updated (bivalent) booster.

The Chesapeake Health Department offers the following COVID19 vaccines, as applicable:

  • Pfizer 6 months old to 4 years old (primary series)
  • Pfizer 6 months old to 4 years old (bivalent booster)
  • Pfizer 5 years old to 11 years old (primary series)
  • Pfizer 5 years old to 11 years old (bivalent booster)
  • Pfizer 12 years old and older (primary series)
  • Pfizer 12 years old and older (bivalent booster)
  • Moderna 6 months to 5 years old (primary series)
  • Moderna 6 months to 5 years old (bivalent booster)
  • Moderna 6 years old to 11 years old (primary series)
  • Moderna 6 years old to 11 years old (bivalent booster)
  • Moderna 12 years and older (primary series)
  • Moderna 12 years and older (bivalent booster)

COVID-19 vaccines currently approved or authorized by FDA are effective in preventing serious outcomes of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), including severe disease, hospitalization, and death.

Efforts to increase the number of people in the United States who are up to date with their COVID-19 vaccines remain critical to preventing severe illness, hospitalizations, and deaths from COVID-19.

These recommendations allow persons who may be at increased risk to severe outcomes due to COVID-19 to receive additional protection. People should assess their own personal risk and are encouraged to consult with a healthcare provider on what would be best for their situation.  For more information on COVID-19 vaccines, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention “CDC Vaccines for COVID-19 website”.
