Fight the Flu & COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic

October 23, 2021

As part of its commitment to building a healthier community, Riverside Health system is proud to be hosting several free vaccination events throughout the region in order to further promote both flu and COVID-19 vaccination.

At these clinics, residents will be able to receive the flu and COVID-19 vaccines at the same time, with one in each arm. The clinics will feature free drive-thru and walk-up vaccinations for those ages 12 and over. To receive second or third Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines, you must show proof of prior vaccination. Additionally, under the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA), COVID-19 booster shots are currently available to those 65 and older and those at risk of severe illness, including healthcare workers. Those who are eligible may be administered a single Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine booster dose at least six months after the first two doses to provide additional immunity with proof of prior vaccination. These vaccination events will only offer the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. While supplies last.

As soon as Riverside has more information regarding approval of COVID-19 booster shots for other individuals, we will provide an update.

A drive-thru clinic will be held at the Riverside Cancer Care Center on Campus of Riverside Regional Medical Center on Saturday, October 23, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Riverside Cancer Care Center
12100 Warwick Blvd., Newport News

In light of COVID-19, masking will be required at all times at the clinic. Temperature checks and screenings will be performed. No testing will be done on site.
