COVID-19 Immunization

Book your appointment today by using the Defense Health Agency Appointing Portal (DAP) website at
https://informatics-stage.health.mil/COVAX, choose Virginia, and follow the prompts to pick a location, day and time. (Appointments made on the DAP website NOW are for immunizations at NMCP AND Branch Health Clinics at JEB Little Creek, NAS Oceana, and Naval Station Norfolk .)

COVID-19 Vaccine availability at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth (NMCP) is now available to:

ALL ACTIVE DUTY SERVICE MEMBERS AND BENEFICIARIES, 16 years old and older (16 and 17 year old beneficiaries must be accompanied by a parent). When scheduling your initial dose appointment, please also make an appointment for your second dose for at least 21 days later.

When you book your appointment, you’ll be asked to provide:
First and last name; Department of Defense ID number (found on the back of your military-issued identification card); phone number; and which dose you’ll be receiving (first or second). All doses given at NMCP are Pfizer, and we are currently only offering the second dose to those who received their first dose at NMCP.

An alternative is to make an appointment at the FEMA Community Vaccination Center located at the Military Circle Mall in Norfolk (www.norfolk.gov/covid19vaccine), open 7 days a week, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Also, vaccines are being offered in the community at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Hampton, all of the Tidewater-area civilian health care departments are offering appointments for the vaccine.

Please keep in mind that currently Active Duty initial and second doses of the COVID-19 Vaccine will require appointments using the Defense Health Agency Appointing Portal (DAP).

Active Duty members who received their initial dose before April 23 (which would have been scheduled via their Command Reps) should continue to work with their Command Reps to schedule their second doses. Non-Active Duty personnel (GS, contractors, retirees, etc.) who received an initial dose before April 23, please walk in for your second dose at the SAME LOCATION where you received the initial dose.

Thank you for your patience as we worked together to keep everyone safe through this process, and, ultimately, fully vaccinate all against COVID-19.
