The Richmond City Health District is working with the Richmond Public Schools to get free vaccinations to students and staff starting next week:

Dr. Yvonne Brandon, the Richmond School Superintendent, says parents need to sign that permission slip, because she says bottom line here is kid’s can’t learn if they’re at home sick. “We’re targeting our elementary population first and that’s approximately 15,000 students that we’re targeting first. Then we’ll move up the ranks through the middle schools and secondary schools.”
