RHHD encourages families to complete school-required immunizations and physicals

June 28, 2023 — The Richmond and Henrico Health Districts (RHHD) encourage families to take advantage of the summer months and sign up their middle and high school aged children for school-required immunizations and physicals. Children can receive immunizations and physicals from their pediatrician, a local pharmacy, or from RHHD.  

“Summer is a great time to get your child up-to-date on school-required immunizations and physicals,” said Dr. Becca Bruhl, RHHD Advisor on Community & Children’s Health. “These safe and effective immunizations help keep our children and community healthy. I encourage parents to take advantage of one of these upcoming opportunities, and help ensure your child is ready for school on day one.” 

RHHD has opened registration for school-required immunizations and physicals at Henrico East, Henrico West, and Cary Street clinics, Resource Centers, and via its mobile van clinic. Spanish bilingual staff will be available at each location. Families can schedule appointments at an RHHD site by calling (804) 205-3501 and can find more information at RHHD.gov/childhoodvax.
