The COVID-19 high-through put vaccination sites at Naval Station Norfolk and Naval Air Station Oceana are open for walk-in vaccinations starting April 22 and 23.
At both locations, vaccines will be administered to the first 500 active duty military, DoD civilians, and government contractors with no appointment necessary on a first-come, first-serve basis.
“It only takes about 5 minutes for the vaccine process and a 15-minute wait period,” said Cmdr. Suzanne Fierros, force nurse for Commander, Naval Air Force Atlantic (COMNAVAIRLANT). “For an average person, it’s about 20 minutes. If you’ve been flagged receiving a vaccine in the past it will be about 35 minutes.”
The vaccination clinics are provided as a way to increase the opportunity for individuals to receive the vaccine.
