Vaccine Drop-In Child Care

Drop-In Child Care While You Get Vaccinated

In support of removing barriers to receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, the YMCA of South Hampton Roads is offering free, drop-in child care during vaccination appointments for parents and caregivers who need it.

Drop-in care is available for children ages 6 weeks to 12 years of age. Membership is not required to use this service, however, you must reserve your space at least 24 hours in advance, as space is limited. Each child receiving care must have their own reservation.


  • A YMCA account is required and each child who will be in care must be added to that account. Membership is not required to create a YMCA account.
  • Masks are required in child care & youth programs
  • Please view our Drop-In Care guidelines
  • Caregivers must check their child in AND out of the Y
  • During check-in, please confirm your Emergency Contact information and let staff know if there are any extraordinary notes/concerns to be aware of (like allergies)
