Students will be eligible to receive their school physical, as well as all required or recommended vaccinations. Health officials say that only one parent can attend the clinic with their child and they must bring the child’s vaccination records.

The Pfizer vaccine will be available for children 12 years and older. They will need to wait the required 21-days between the first and second shot, so health officials urge parents to schedule appointments as soon as possible.

The clinics will take place at the Health Department’s office at 4452 Corporation Lane from 8:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. on:

  • August 6
  • August 13
  • August 20
  • August 27
  • September 10

Registration for the clinics is required. Officials say to call 757-518-2700 and select Option 1 to make an appointment.
