VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — The Virginia Beach Department of Public Health is working with Virginia Beach City Public Schools to offer COVID-19 and flu vaccines to students, faculty, staff and the general public.
The clinics will be held on Jan. 6 and 8 at two schools.
Children ages 5-17 must bring a parent or legal guardian with them to receive the Pfizer vaccine. Adults will be able to get the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson vaccines.
People can also get boosters if they’re more than six months past their initial two-dose series of Pfizer or Moderna vaccines. Those who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine more than two months ago and get a booster shot as well. Those getting boosters can choose which type they receive, which is now allowed under Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations.
Appointments are encouraged, but walk-ins will be accepted.
