Riverside is here for you during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Riverside Medical Group’s free flu and COVID-19 vaccine clinics for the year are over. If you were not able to attend and need a vaccine, please contact your Riverside primary care provider, schedule through your MyChart account or call 757-534-5050.

Riverside Health System is proud to announce it will host several free clinics throughout the region to further promote both the High Dose (HD) and standard flu vaccination and the COVID-19 vaccination. These drive-thru and walk-up clinics will allow patients 9 and older to receive the flu vaccine and those 6 months and older to receive their primary Pfizer, COVID-19 vaccine and those 12 and up to receive their booster.

COVID-19 vaccines will be offered for all primary doses as well as booster doses based on the current approved vaccination schedule. To receive a second, third or booster vaccination, you must show proof of prior vaccination.

Patients who are sick with any of the following symptoms shouldn't attend a clinic:

  • Fever (greater than 100.4)
  • New onset cough
  • Sore throat
  • Chills
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Congestion or runny nose not related to allergies

There will be no COVID-19 testing at these clinics, so prior confirmation is recommended before receiving either vaccination.

Riverside is committed to caring for the community and encourages any resident not yet vaccinated to stop by one of these clinics in order to help improve health outcomes throughout the region. Getting vaccinated before flu activity begins helps protect once flu season starts. Both Covid and Flu Vaccine will take roughly two weeks to provide full protection to your immune system.

Guidelines

In light of COVID-19, masking will be required at all times at the clinic.

Patients must confirm they have none of the following symptoms: Fever (100.4+), new loss of taste or smell, new unset cough, sore throat, 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.

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.
