March 23, 2022- Starting today, March 23, 2022, any Richmond or Henrico resident who is interested in a free COVID-19 vaccine can now call the Richmond and Henrico Health District (RHHD) hotline to schedule a time for nurses to come to your home to give you a COVID-19 vaccine. The program, called Doses on Demand, is available for adult and child primary series and booster doses and will offer all vaccine types.

“We previously offered this program for folks who were very ill, elderly, or who had extreme difficulty leaving their house,” explains Joanna Cirillo, Public Health Nurse Supervisor. “But now, with lower demand, we’re able to offer more individualized services to everyone and make it as easy as possible for folks to get a vaccine… we hope this helps folks get vaccinated and boosted who might have challenges like transportation, child care, etc.”

Individuals who are interested in receiving a COVID-19 vaccine from Doses on Demand can call 804-205-3501 to schedule an appointment with an RHHD representative. The program is available to everyone who lives in Richmond and Henrico, is free, and does not require health insurance.

Doses on Demand appointments are typically offered about two weeks out from when an individual calls, but there are many same-day walk-in COVID-19 vaccine clinics available in our community. To find a walk-in clinic or make an appointment, visit vax.rchd.com or call 804-205-3501.
