Hampton Health Department's Immunization
The Hampton Health Department’s Immunization Clinic will be closed beginning this Friday, April 24th through Friday, May 1st. We will be renovating the Clinic to make improvements for a more user-friendly environment for our clients. Thank you for your patience while we make these improvements to the Immunization Clinic.
Routine Immunization Clinic Hours:
Monday 1:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Tuesday-Friday 8:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Clinic is closed the first Wednesday afternoon of every month.
No Tuberculin (TB) screening or testing is done on Thursdays.
It is best to call ahead since clinic hours can vary due to staff trainings, special health events, or high volume clinic days. Please call (757) 727-1172, ext. 21717.
Anyone is eligible to receive shots at the health department. You do not have to be a Hampton resident or be at any certain income level. We encourage you to have a primary care provider that coordinates your care and provides all your health services, including immunizations, but we are here to serve you when needed.
Any childhood vaccine required for school entry in Virginia is provided free of charge. A fee is charged for non-school-required childhood vaccines, and most adult vaccines, TB assessments. Cash, check, Visa, and MasterCard may be used to pay for these. We can bill some private insurance companies but must confirm converage first.
TB skin tests (PPD's) are not given on request. A TB assessment must be done to find out if there is a need for the PPD. One of our nurses will ask you questions about TB symptoms and possible risk for exposure to TB and decide whether you need to have a PPD. TB risk assessments are done every weekday except Thursdays.
As of March 1, 2010, Hampton Health Department no longer provides travel immunization services. Information is available at http://www.cdc.gov/travel/.
Pre-exposure rabies vaccine series is given to people who work in areas at risk for exposure to rabies such as veterinary clinics, nature parks, zoos, etc., or who will be handling animals during foreign travel. This series must be scheduled in advance.
Post-exposure rabies shots must be administered by a physician. This is typically done in the hospital emergency room. If you are bitten, the Environmental Health Department is available for consultation to you or your physician. Please call (757) 727-2570 for further information.
