Events

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. The FDA advisory panel has approved booster doses of COVID-19 to those that are aged 65 and above as well as those considered at high-risk of severe COVID-19 disease, including those with high occupational risk. These vaccination events will only offer the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. 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. While supplies last. Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines only. No testing will be done on site.

Patients must confirm they have none of the following symptoms: Fever (100.4+), new loss of taste or smell, cough, sore throat, chills, muscle pain, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, fatigue, headache, congestion or runny nose, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea.

If you are sick or show any symptoms of illness, please do not come for vaccination; seek care from your doctor.
