Upcoming Free COVID-19 Testing Events

We are conducting free Covid-19 Community Testing Events in Richmond City and Henrico County. Call the hotline at (804) 205-3501 to register and find a date and location that is convenient. Tests are available while supplies last, this is the reason we encourage pre-registration. 

To reduce the load on our call center staff, consider using the COVID-19 Community Testing Event Registration form to make a testing appointment, rather than calling the hotline.

Community Testing Events are subject to change or cancellation. Testing locations are accessible for wheelchairs and other mobility support devices. Car-side testing is also available for patients on-site as needed. Can’t make one of our free testing events?

LATEST NEWS

COVID-19 BOOSTER APPOINTMENTS AND WALK-INS AVAILABLE IN RICHMOND AND HENRICO

November 22, 2021- There are currently many COVID-19 booster vaccination appointments and walk-in opportunities in the Richmond and Henrico area following Friday’s CDC and FDA announcement of updated guidelines.

Current guidelines state adults ages 18 years or older qualify for a COVID-19 booster shot to help maintain high levels of immunity. Individuals who received Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines qualify beginning six months after their second dose and individuals who received a Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine qualify two months after their first dose.

“The new guidance not only qualifies more people to receive the vaccine, but also makes it easier to understand whether or not you qualify,” explains Dr. Melissa Viray, Deputy Director for Richmond and Henrico Health Districts. “There are many places that offer vaccines for 5-11 year olds and adults in the same place… you can get the whole family vaccinated at the same time!”

Booster opportunities are available through the Arthur Ashe CVC, local health district events, pharmacies, and private providers. Many of these opportunities can be found at vax.rchd.com or by calling 804-205-3501.

Most clinics have all types of COVID-19 vaccines available, but individuals should look for a clinic that offers the type of vaccine they are seeking.

 

RHHD COVID-19 VACCINE CLINICS NOW OFFER 5-11-YEAR-OLD AND BOOSTER WALK-UPS WITHOUT AN APPOINTMENT

Starting November 16th, any eligible person of any age who is seeking their first series or booster dose can walk in to RHHD clinics. This includes the Arthur Ashe CVC, which is operated by VDH contractor AshBritt. Appointments can still be made at vax.rchd.com or by calling 804-205-3501, but they will no longer be required.

RHHD PARTNERS WITH SCHOOL SYSTEMS TO OFFER SATURDAY COVID-19 VACCINE CLINICS

Nov 5, 2021- The Richmond and Henrico Health Districts (RHHD) are offering special COVID-19 vaccination events for 5-11-year-olds. These events, in partnership with Richmond Public Schools (RPS) and Henrico County Public Schools (HCPS), offer a weekend option for parents in a space that may already be familiar to families.

“Many of our parents are eager to have their 5-11-year-olds vaccinated and we are excited to assist in the process,” explains Dr. Beth Teigen of HCPS. “Vaccinated children are less likely to experience illness and a disruption in their education… it can bring peace of mind to families.” “RPS and HCPS have been incredible partners throughout the pandemic,” explains Lawanda Dunn, Nurse Supervisor at RHHD. “Parents trust their school system… they are critical messengers in getting parents the info they need.”

All events are held on Saturdays from 10:00 am-3:00 pm. Locations are listed below. The clinics will require children to have an appointment. Walk-ups will be served if there is enough supply on hand; otherwise, staff will schedule an appointment for them for another clinic.

  • November 13th (first doses): Fairfield Middle School, MLK Middle School
  • November 20th (first doses): Elko Middle School, George Wythe High School
  • December 4th (second doses): Fairfield Middle School, MLK Middle School
  • December 11th (second doses): Elko Middle School, George Wythe High School

Parents can schedule an appointment for these and other COVID-19 vaccination events by visiting vax.rchd.com or by calling 804-205-3501. Parents are also encouraged to check with their pediatrician or pharmacy for more vaccination opportunities in their area.
