New 2022 COVID-19 vaccination clinics
A new series of free COVID-19 vaccination clinics in February and March will provide convenient opportunities for those age 5 or older to get immunized against coronavirus. The clinics will provide doses of the two-part vaccine series, as well as boosters to those who completed their initial series at least five months ago. Those under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to receive vaccines. The clinics are being organized by the Richmond and Henrico Health Districts in conjunction with Henrico County Public Schools and its partners that provide after-school programs: the YMCA, the Henrico Education Foundation and the Henrico Police Athletic League, or PAL. The clinics will be held at sites that host after-school programs, but all are open to the public.

Who can get vaccinated?
The clinics are open to members of the public who are 5 or older. Those under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to receive vaccines. The 4-7 p.m. clinic times are designed to make it convenient for parents and guardians to be present for vaccines while picking up their children from after-school programs.
Do I need to register or provide consent?
Register and complete a consent form at the clinic. A state-issued I.D. is not required but will allow for faster registration.
What vaccines will be available?
Children ages 5-11 will receive the two-part Pfizer vaccine, authorized for that age group by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in November. The Moderna vaccine and Johnson & Johnson vaccine will also be available at the clinics. Clinics will also administer Pfizer and Moderna boosters to those who completed their initial series at least five months ago.
Where can I find more information?
COVID-19 vaccines and booster shots are also available at area pharmacies and at various walk-up events. Go to www.henrico.us/health/covid-19/ for more information.

Only students enrolled at the school may participate in these vaccination clinics, and written consent will be required from parents or guardians. Vaccinations will occur during the school day without the parent required to be present. The VDH, or one of their partner pharmacies, will administer the vaccines.
Principals will be sharing information with their school communities, and will work with their family advocates, school nurses and social workers to reach families who might benefit from this opportunity for their child to be vaccinated at school. If need be, someone will go to the home to assist families with completing the consent form, and the consent forms will again be available in multiple languages.
Booster clinics for students 12 and older
In addition to the vaccinations, HCPS is moving to offer boosters for our students ages 12 and older who completed their primary vaccine series six or more months ago. Given the success in the fall of vaccination clinics at Fairfield and Elko middle schools, more Saturday clinics being planned at multiple school sites for students ages 12 and older.
All HCPS families and staff continue to have access to community vaccination clinics through the Richmond and Henrico Health Districts. HCPS is hosting Saturday walk-in vaccine clinics (10 a.m.-2 p.m.) at the following locations:
Elko Middle School – March 5 and March 26
Fairfield Middle School – Feb. 26 and March 19
