Immunization Program

Because RCHD is closely monitoring and responding to COVID-19, some of our clinical programs will be closed.

Clinical programs OPEN:  Southwood, Gilpin, Mosby, and Fairfield Resource Centers, immunization clinics for ages 5 and under, and some clinics will be open on a limited basis (based on criteria). However, we are only seeing patients with urgent needs who have an appointment at this time.  To schedule an appointment, please call 804-482-5500.

Clinical programs CLOSED: The Tuesday evening clinics are closed. Creighton, Whitcomb, Broad Rock and Hillside Resource Centers will also be closed.

Through this program, the Health District seeks to insure that every child in Richmond is fully immunized against infectious diseases by the age of two. Immunizations that include required school shots, flu shots, tuberculosis and vaccination for other infectious diseases are provided for children, adolescents, and adults. In addition, the immunization program engages in educational outreach efforts such as classes and health fairs in order to communicate the importance of immunizations. Call (804) 482-5500 for the immunization clinic schedule or 482-5487 for information about the Immunization Action Program.
