High dose vaccines are recommended for patients 65 and older. The symptoms of COVID-19 and influenza are indistinguishable. All of our influenza vaccines are preservative free and quadrivalent.

Our goal is to keep you as healthy as possible. We strive to keep all of our patients out of the hospital and out of the urgent care center. Always call us first, 24/7, if you have a medical need. When the office is closed, a call to our regular office number (434) 973-9744 will put you in touch with the provider on call.
