(Virginia Beach, Va.) – The Virginia Beach Department of Public Health will host a FREE COVID-19 vaccination clinic Wednesday March 9, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at New Light Baptist Church, 5549 Indian River Road.
COVID-19 vaccines remain our best defense to reduce the spread and diminish serious illness and hospitalization.
All vaccines will be available including boosters. Ages 5-17 will be offered the Pfizer vaccine and will need to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Masks are required to be worn inside the clinic.
Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. Some people may have a preference for the vaccine type that they originally received and others may prefer to get a different booster. Centers for Disease Control Prevention (CDC) recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots however it is recommended you discuss mixing doses with your primary care physician.
Appointments for Wednesday are encouraged; however, walk-ins will be accepted. Visit the links below to schedule your appointment time.
