As part of our commitment to your health and safety, Riverside is offering FREE flu shots for those ages 5 and up on a first-come basis (no appointment needed) while vaccine supplies last.
Riverside will have both the regular vaccine and HD vaccine (recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for adults age 65 and older) at all clinics while supplies last.
This year we have drive-thru and outdoor flu shot clinics to limit your risks for COVID-19. Please review our guidelines below before you attend. If you have any questions, please call Riverside Nurse 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 757-595-6363 or toll free 1-800-675-6368.
At this time there are no scheduled flu clinics. Please contact your primary care physician to schedule an appointment for your flu shot.
In light of COVID-19, masking will be required at all times at the clinic.
Temperature checks and additional safety screenings will be required prior to any patient receiving a flu shot.
Patients must confirm they have none of the following symptoms: fever, cough, sore throat, chills, muscle pain, loss of taste or smell, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, fatigue, headache, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea.
Patients who are sick or show any of the symptoms noted above should contact their physician before getting the flu vaccination.
In addition, patients who are under evaluation for COVID-19, waiting on viral test result, diagnosed with COVID-19 and not yet cleared to discontinue isolation, or have had prolonged contact with anyone with confirmed COVID-19 should also contact their physician before getting the flu vaccination.
