Virginia Beach City Public Schools and the Virginia Beach Department of Public Health have partnered to offer free COVID-19 vaccinations to students, faculty, staff and the general public the week of Oct. 11, 2021 at several schools. Appointments are encouraged and can be made using the links below. However, walk-ins will also be accepted.

Those under 18 will be offered the Pfizer vaccine and will need to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Adults will have the option of either the two dose Pfizer (Comirnaty), two dose Moderna, or one dose Johnson & Johnson vaccines.

Boosters will also be available for the Pfizer vaccine in accordance with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Food and Drug Administration. The booster vaccine can be obtained any time after 6 months from the date of second Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. For information on booster eligibility, visit the CDC website.

Third doses of Moderna are also available, as directed by the CDC, for those individuals who are immunocompromised. This includes people who have received an organ transplant, who are actively being treated for cancer, who have HIV, or are receiving any other treatment that affects their immune system. It is recommended that individuals who believe they may be eligible for the third dose should consult their physician, or refer to CDC guidelines.

All clinics will be open from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
