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? To find a list of testing sites in the Richmond/Henrico area, visit the Richmond and Henrico Area COVID-19 Testing Sites page.

May 6, 2021- Richmond and Henrico Health Districts (RHHD) have partnered with Virginia Union University (VUU) to offer walk-up Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination opportunities on Fridays over the next few weeks. Pre-registration or scheduling an appointment in advance is not required.

Adults and children 16 years and older who are accompanied by a guardian can attend one of the following vaccination events. All events will be held from 11:00 am-3:00 pm.

  • 1st dose on May 7th, 2nd dose on May 28th

Richmond and Henrico Health Districts resume Johnson and Johnson vaccine use. 

April 30, 2021- Following the new FDA and CDC guidelines, Richmond and Henrico Health Districts (RHHD) are resuming use of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine at their clinics —starting with the homebound vaccination program—on Friday, April 30th. 

Although the Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine’s possible side effect of thrombosis (blood clot) is serious, it impacts a very small portion of individuals—about 2 in a million vaccine doses. A review of all available data at this time shows that the J&J vaccine’s known and potential benefits outweigh its known and potential risks.

Women younger than 50 years old should be aware of the rare but increased risk of this adverse event and that there are other COVID-19 vaccine options available (Pfizer and Moderna) for which this risk has not been seen. RHHD will continue to offer a choice of vaccine to our residents and ensure those choosing to receive J & J will get the updated information regarding the blood clot side effect. 

RHHD highly recommends all three vaccines as safe and effective.


How to schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment in Phase 2

April 26, 2021- COVID-19 vaccines are offered in more places now that supply is increasing and eligibility now includes everyone ages 16 and up. You no longer have to wait to be called off a pre-registration list and can now schedule an appointment online or over the phone.

These tips can help you schedule an appointment for a vaccine, but you may also be contacted by us if you previously pre-registered or by your healthcare provider, local pharmacy, a faith community, or community organization with a vaccine opportunity. We recommend seeking a vaccine using whichever method is best for you and taking the first opportunity you have to get vaccinated! … Continue reading


Which Vaccine Is Right For Me?

MARCH 1, 2021- The right vaccine is whichever vaccine you have access to first!

The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are mRNA vaccines. Both use the same process and although some minor ingredients are slightly different between the two, they do the same thing in your body. They are both safe and effective. Both are approximately 95% effective at preventing symptomatic illness and about 100% effective at preventing severe disease that would lead to hospitalization.
