Important Information and forms

Immunizations are not just for kids!

Regardless of age, we all need immunizations to keep us healthy. With time, immunity from childhood vaccines can wear off and you may be at risk for new and different diseases. With adulthood comes responsibility, including the need to protect ourselves and our loved ones. Learn more from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Vaccinations for adults are available from your health care provider and at the Health Department's five clinics.

Bring all immunization records to your appointment, including your yellow travel card if you have one.

Everyone six months and older is encouraged to stay up to date with their COVID-19 vaccines. See the COVID-19 vaccine page for more information.

Meningococcal disease

In September 2023, the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) reported an increase in meningococcal disease activity in the eastern region of Virginia. Most case-patients are adults between 30-40 years old. 

Meningococcal disease refers to any illness caused by bacteria called Neisseria meningitidis. These illnesses are often severe, can be deadly, and include infections of the lining of the brain and spinal cord (meningitis) and bloodstream. Keeping up to date with recommended vaccines is the best protection against meningococcal disease. Learn more about Meningococcal Vaccination.
