Childhood Immunization

vaccine and children

Vaccination Sensation!

The State of Virginia requires that children must be up-to-date on physicals and immunizations for school and for learning virtually. The Richmond and Henrico Health Districts and their partners have developed materials to assist parents in making informed choices about vaccination. You can protect your child from preventable diseases by making sure they get their immunizations on time.

Please scan and email your child's immunization record to our encrypted inbox prior to your appointment:      

Bring your child’s immunization records to the appointment.

Please note that while the Richmond and Henrico Health Districts do not charge for immunizations, some of our partners may. Additionally, most pediatricians will perform an exam which could add an additional cost.


Schedule your child's vaccinations with one of our Vaccination Sensation! partners:
