The Norfolk Department of Public Health is offering back to school immunizations for kindergartners and rising sixth graders.
NORFOLK, VA – The Norfolk Department of Public Health is offering back to school immunizations for kindergartners and rising sixth graders. Last year, hundreds of public school students in Norfolk were unable to start school on time because of not having up to date immunizations, many of these being rising sixth-graders needing Tdap (tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis) boosters.
The Norfolk Department of Public Health is encouraging parents to avoid the last minute rush and standing in long lines to get your child vaccinated. Back to school immunization clinics are offered at two locations on days and times below:
Norfolk Public Health Clinic at Southampton
830 Southampton Ave., Norfolk, VA 23510
Mondays, Tuesdays Wednesdays and Fridays from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Norfolk Department of Public Health Multi-Service Clinic at Little Creek
207 East Little Creek Road, Norfolk VA 23505
Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays from 8:30 AM – 10:30 AM & 1:00 PM – 3:30 PM
Special back to school immunization clinics will be held at the Little Creek Clinic on Wednesdays, August 29th and September 5th
Please bring a valid photo ID, your child’s immunization record and insurance card. The vaccines are free, but if you have insurance, your provider will be billed for the administrative fee.
