NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — The Norfolk Department of Public Health will be giving free immunizations and Tdap vaccines for rising sixth graders in the city.

  • Norfolk Department of Public Health, 830 Southampton Avenue, Monday – Friday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Little Creek Multi-Service Center, 207 E. Little Creek Road in Norfolk, Monday – Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., and Monday -Thursday from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Another Tdap only clinic will be held from August 11 through August 22 at the Park Place Multi-Service Center, 606 W. 29th Street in Norfolk. The hours at that location are Monday – Friday from 8:30 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
