Henrico, Va. Aug. 22, 2019 – The Henrico County Health Department will offer school physical exams and immunizations Aug. 28 at the Health Department’s West Clinic at 8600 Dixon Powers Drive. Students in preschool through 12th grade, who are uninsured or underinsured, can have school-required physicals performed at no cost. Immunizations will also be offered. Services will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

In addition to school-required immunizations, students can receive the Tdap vaccine, which can protect against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis. The Tdap vaccine booster is required for students entering seventh grade.

Students younger than 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian, with a photo ID. Parents and guardians should bring their child’s immunization records, if available.

Students with health insurance that covers immunizations and physicals should be seen by a primary-care doctor or a walk-in urgent-care center that accepts their insurance.

There will be no out-of-pocket costs to participating families for school-required immunizations and physicals.

For details, call the Henrico County Health Department at 804-501-4651.
