September 30, 2022

The Virginia Beach Department of Public Health will host a FREE COVID-19 & flu vaccination clinic on Wednesday, Oct. 5, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at New Light Full Gospel Baptist Church, 5549 Indian River Road.

Staying healthy helps families enjoy things like events or travel. Being fully vaccinated and boosted remains our best defense to reduce the spread and diminish serious illness and hospitalization. Visit vaccines.gov to make an appointment today.

All vaccines will be available at the clinic including boosters. On Aug. 31, 2022, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted Emergency Use Authorization for the updated Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 bivalent vaccines to be used as booster doses for the prevention of severe SARS-CoV-2 infection in people aged 12 years and older at least two months following a completed primary series or booster vaccination. The bivalent vaccines, also known as "updated boosters," contain RNA (mRNA) components of the original strain of SARS-CoV-2 and the BA.4 and BA.5 lineages of the Omicron variants of SARS-CoV-2.

  • The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, Bivalent, is authorized for use as a single booster dose in individuals aged 12 years and older.
  • The Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, Bivalent, is authorized for use as a single booster dose in individuals aged 18 years and older.
  • Monovalent mRNA COVID-19 vaccines are no longer authorized as booster doses for individuals aged 12 years and older. Only individuals aged 5-11 years can receive a monovalent booster dose at this time.

Those who received a primary vaccine and booster dose of Johnson & Johnson's Janssen COVID-19 vaccine at least two months ago may now receive a second booster dose using an mRNA COVID-19 Bivalent vaccine.
A consultation with your healthcare provider is recommended to decide whether to receive a second booster.


People ages 5-17 will need to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

Appointments for Wednesday are encouraged; however, walk-ins will be accepted. Flu vaccinations will be given as walk-ins only. Visit the links below to schedule your appointment time.

    The Virginia Beach Department of Public Health welcomes Caitlin Pedati, M.D., M.P.H. to the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) to serve as the Virginia Beach Health District Director, effective Dec. 10, 2021.

    Dr. Parham Jaberi, Chief Deputy Commissioner, Community Health Services, Virginia Department of Health says, "We are truly fortunate to have Dr. Pedati join our team at VDH. With her background in infectious disease control and epidemiology at the state and national level, Dr. Pedati is joining our health department at an opportune time as we continue our COVID-19 pandemic response and efforts."

    Dr. Pedati, a board-certified pediatrician, comes to VDH from the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH), where she has served as the Medical Director and State Epidemiologist. Her career, however, began in public health with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, where she was one of the agency's disease detectives in the Epidemic Intelligence Service. She subsequently served as a field officer with the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services prior to joining IDPH.

    Dr. Pedati graduated cum laude from Georgetown University with a Bachelor of Science in Human Sciences and a Certificate in Population Health. She earned her Medical Doctorate and Master of Public Health with a focus on epidemiology from The George Washington University. There she received recognition in both public health and clinical medicine as a member of the Delta Omega Honorary Society in Public Health as well as the Gold Humanism Honor Society. She then completed a pediatric residency with a Certificate in Global Child Health at Children's National Hospital in Washington, D.C.

    As both a public health and clinical professional, Dr. Pedati has engaged with several national organizations including the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists as the former Co-chair of the Healthcare Associated Infections Committee, as well as the American Academy of Pediatrics as a member of the executive committee for the Section on Epidemiology, Public Health and Evidence.

    Dr. Pedati is excited to return to her home state and notes, "I look forward to joining the wonderful team in Virginia Beach in supporting a healthy community during a time of great growth and opportunity for public health."

    Vaccinate Virginia Town Hall - Dec. 16, 2020


    COVID-19 vaccines are effective at protecting you from getting sick. Based on what is known about COVID-19 vaccines, people who have been fully vaccinated can start to do some things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic.

    Visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website for recommendations to help you make decisions about daily activities after you are fully vaccinated to help protect yourself and others.

    Use the Virginia Department of Health COVID-19 Vaccination Record Request Portal to access your vaccination record.

    Once you have accessed your record, it can be saved, printed, or downloaded as a PDF.
    Your vaccination record will only show COVID-19 immunizations.

    If you received vaccines out of state or if a federal agency administered your vaccines, they will not show up in this self-serve portal.

    This portal is not a “vaccine passport” but serves as a way to prove you were vaccinated for COVID-19.
