COVID Vaccination Update

The Chesapeake Health Department will offer free COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters onsite at 748 Battlefield Blvd N, Chesapeake each Tuesday in July from 10:00am to 2:00pm for ages 5 years and older AND from 2:00pm to 5:30pm for ages 6 months to 4 years old. Appointments are not required.  The Chesapeake Health Departments offer the following COVID19 vaccine formulations:

  • Pfizer 6 months old to 4 years old

  • Pfizer 12 years old and older
  • Moderna 6 months to 5 years old
  • Moderna 6 years old to 11 years old
  • Moderna 12 years and older

CDC recommends COVID-19 primary series vaccines for everyone ages 6 months and older, and COVID-19 boosters for everyone ages 5 years and older, if eligible. The FDA authorized and CDC updated recommendations to allow for immunocompromised and certain adults the choice to receive a 2nd booster dose of an mRNA vaccine.  A second booster is now recommended for certain immunocompromised individuals and people over the age of 50 who received an initial booster dose of Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccine at least 4 months ago. Those who received a primary vaccine and booster dose of Johnson Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine at least 4 months ago may now receive a second booster dose using an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine.

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 “Vaccines for COVID-19” page at
