Flu Vaccines are Here!
Flu vaccines are recommended for everyone 6 months of age and older. Pregnant people, young children, older people, and people with certain chronic medical conditions like asthma, diabetes and heart disease are at increased risk of serious flu-related complications, so getting a yearly flu vaccine is especially important for them.
Getting a flu vaccine this fall can reduce your risk of getting flu and help save scarce medical resources. It’s important for everyone to do their part to stay healthy this flu season. Prevent the spread of flu and other respiratory illnesses:
- Mask Up: Cover your nose and mouth with a mask when out in public.
- Lather Up: Wash your hands frequently with soap and water.
- Sleeve Up: Roll up your sleeve to get a flu shot.
The more people vaccinated against flu, the more people are protected from flu.
Call or text (540) 464-8700 to schedule a flu shot appointment.

What’s New with RAHC
RAHC has given me access to health care which has helped since losing my job. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be able to see a doctor.
We had a great experience getting our COVID-19 vaccines at RAHC and thanks to those lovely nurses that took time to talk to us about our shots.
I had been avoiding going to the doctor and dentist for five years because I couldn’t afford health insurance. I am so grateful for RAHC’s affordable health care.
The pediatrician is always so patient with my granddaughter and talks to her, so she feels included in her appointment.
Health Center Quality Leader
The Rockbridge Area Health Center was among the top 20% of all Health Services Resources Administration (HRSA) supported health centers that achieved the best overall clinical outcomes, demonstrating high-quality across our clinical operations in 2022 and 2021, and top 30% of all HRSA supported health centers in 2020, 2019, and 2018. Benchmarks were determined by mathematically adjusting for certain health center characteristics facilitating comparisons across health centers, and sorting health centers into quartiles for each clinical quality measure. Health centers are assigned a quartile ranking for each of several critical clinical quality measures, based on their performance. These rankings are then averaged together to create an Average Quartile Ranking (AQR). Health centers that ranked in the top decile (top 30% of average quartile rankings) are awarded Health Center Quality Leader recognition.
Patient-Centered Medical Home
After a rigorous review process, RAHC has been recognized as Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH), Level 3, the highest level of recognition. This means that as the patient, you are at the center of a team of health care professionals partnering with you to make informed decisions. By receiving this recognition, RAHC has made a commitment to providing a quality improvement within the practice and a patient-centered approach to care that results in patients that are happier and healthier. This also leads to lower health care costs, higher-quality care, and a more meaningful experience.
The Access Enhancer badge recognizes health centers that have increased the total number of patients and the number of patients who receive at least one comprehensive service (mental health, substance abuse, vision, dental, and/or enabling) by at least 5% during consecutive UDS reporting periods (2020 and 2021 UDS).
Health Disparities Reducer
The Health Disparities Reducer badge recognizes health centers that qualify for the Access Enhancer badge and demonstrate improvements in low birth weight, hypertension control, and/or uncontrolled diabetes for specific patient populations while maintaining or improving the health center’s overall clinical quality measure performance from the previous reporting year.
Advancing Health Information Technology for Quality
Recognizes health centers that meet specific criteria determined by HRSA to optimize HIT services under the following five criteria:
- Adopted an electronic health record (EHR) system
- Offers telehealth services
- Exchanges clinical information electronically with key providers health care settings
