COVID-19 Immunization

UPDATE: Monday, April 12, 7:36 a.m.

As we continue to receive shipments of the COVID-19 vaccine, and we are now providing initial and second dose vaccinations to the following beneficiaries according to the DoD Population Schema:


Please come to NMCP for your second dose IF it has been 21 days since you received your first dose AT NMCP.


ALL beneficiaries 75 years and older.

If you are in this group, please call the COVID Call Center at (757) 953-6200 and select option # 2 TWICE, and then option # 1, to schedule an appointment, or you may self-book a vaccination appointment by visiting the Tricare Online Patient Portal at: Appointments are limited.

Operational forces.

U.S. Fleet Forces will continue to coordinate with your command to schedule vaccinations for initial doses. NMCP will continue to communicate with operational commands to coordinate the availability of the vaccine.

If you are Active Duty, please DO NOT CALL or walk in without U.S. Fleet Forces coordination. Frontline Essential Workers. Please coordinate with your command’s POC to schedule vaccinations for initial doses.

Currently, there is no vaccination timeline beyond those listed above. Information about future vaccine availability will be shared when available.

Need your COVID-19 vaccination? Vaccines are available at Military Circle Mall, 880 North Military Highway, Norfolk. There is enough vaccine at this site to vaccinate those 16 years or older (must be accompanied by a parent). Go to to make your appointment online. Please take the steps to get this extremely important health protection vaccination.

Timing of the second dose.

Following CDC guidelines, the second dose should be administered as close to the recommended interval as possible. However, if it is not feasible to adhere to the recommended interval, science behind the vaccination shows that the second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine may be scheduled for administration up to six weeks (42 days) after the first dose. We do not anticipate exceeding the CDC-approved window for vaccination (42 days from first to second dose).

Thank you for your understanding that NMCP does not determine priority, sequence, or timing of receipt and subsequent distribution of the vaccine.
We will continue to update our Facebook page and website with the most current information on vaccinations.

Prior to receiving your your COVID-19 Vaccine you will be required to fill out a COVID-19 Screening Form. Please print the form, fill out items 1 through 6, and bring it with you.
