Release Date Release Number
Release Date:
May 4, 2021

Norfolk, Virginia — FEMA continues to work in partnership with the Commonwealth of Virginia, the Virginia Department of Emergency Management, the Virginia Department of Health, the independent cities within Hampton Roads as well as community organizations to successfully expand the rate of vaccinations in an efficient, effective, and equitable manner.

First dose operations at six temporary clinics throughout Hampton Roads were completed this weekend with three additional clinics held in Norfolk, and one each in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, and Newport News. These community vaccination centers were used to advance outreach efforts to vaccinate Virginia while ensuring access and equity to all members of the community.

Although residents are able to sign up for appointments in advance, all clinics accept walk-ins. Additionally, FEMA outreach teams canvass local neighborhoods surrounding the clinics to provide information to residents and assist with registration.

To date, 1,191 residents were vaccinated with their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine. As such, four temporary clinics will re-open to administer second doses:
