Immunization and Vaccinations
Disease prevention is the key to public health. People who are
immunized protect themselves, their families, and the community!
Vaccinations are available through your health care provider and the Fairfax County Health Department clinics. Please bring your (or your child's) vaccination record to the clinic.
Please Note: The Fairfax County Health Department is now offering free Tdap vaccine for adults 19 years and older. Tdap protects against pertussis (whooping cough).
Immunizations for foreign travel are available at the health
department's Joseph Willard Health
Center and Mt. Vernon District
Immunization and consultation for foreign travel are provided by appointment on a fee-for-service basis.
