RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The Richmond and Henrico Health District is partnering with Richmond Public Schools and Henrico County Public Schools to offer weekend COVID-19 vaccination events for 5 to 11-year-olds.

RHHD said these clinics offer parents an option to get their children vaccinated that is already familiar to their families.

“RPS and HCPS have been incredible partners throughout the pandemic,” said Lawanda
Dunn, Nurse Supervisor at RHHD. “Parents trust their school system… they are critical
messengers in getting parents the info they need.”

Here are the upcoming clinics:

  • First dose clinics
    • Nov. 13: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Fairfield Middle School and MLK Middle School
    • Nov. 20: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Elko Middle School and George Wythe High School
  • Second dose clinics
    • Dec. 4: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Fairfield Middle School and MLK Middle School
    • Dec. 11: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Elko Middle School and George Wythe High School

While walk-ups will be accepted as long as there is enough supplies, parents are encouraged to make an appointment. You can schedule one online here or by calling 804-205-3501.
