Norfolk, Virginia — Receiving a COVID-19 vaccine at the FEMA supported Community Vaccination Center located at the Military Circle Mall is hassle free, quick and easy. Pre-registered residents and those who register onsite can expect a streamlined process that ensures equity and accessibility for all.
On the day of their appointment, residents need to bring documentation that provides proof of their name, which will be used to confirm their appointment.
Next, people move on to one of many vaccination pods where dedicated medical staff from the Department of Defense administer the lifesaving vaccine. After a brief waiting period, residents are free to go. They will be given a date for their second dose and will receive additional instructions from the Virginia Department of Health via email or phone call to confirm their second appointment.
“The line moved quickly and the whole process was seamless. I work in customer service and I recognize excellent client care when I see it. I was very pleasantly surprised,” said Janice Cirillo of Hampton.

“We are committed to supporting the Commonwealth with its goal of vaccinating Virginians from all nearby communities. The center is conveniently located, and our teams are ready to assist as we continue this historic effort,” said FEMA Region 3 Regional Administrator (A) Janice Barlow.
