FEMA to end its role at the Military Circle Mall Community Vaccination Center in Norfolk, VA on May 22, 2021.
Norfolk, Virginia — FEMA will be departing from the Military Circle Mall Community Vaccination Center site on May 22, 2021 and handing operations over to the Virginia Department of Health. Since the center has opened the vaccination team has administered more than 80,000 doses of vaccine. One of the most important goals of the Military Circle Mall Community Vaccination Center was to help vaccinate the underserved and the most vulnerable communities of Hampton Roads. These communities have received more than 50% of the doses that have been administered by the Military Circle Mall Community Vaccination Center.
In addition to FEMA’s efforts at the Military Circle Mall location, FEMA also supported more than thirty community-based vaccination clinics across the Hampton Roads area by providing doses of the COVID-19 vaccine and medical staff. A video overview of these efforts across the Hampton Roads area is available on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HAHnNtYgE8
“This could not have been accomplished without the help and assistance from all of our partners, the Virginia Department of Health (VDH), the Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM), the City of Norfolk, the U.S. Navy, the Virginia National Guard, and our volunteer partners at Volunteer Hampton Roads and Team Rubicon,” said Janice Barlow, Acting Regional Administrator, FEMA Region 3. “We would like to thank everyone who had a hand in making this happen. It is only through this type of collaboration that we can continue to provide an effective response to the nation’s emergencies.”
The Virginia Department of Health, along with the Virginia Department of Emergency Management and the City of Norfolk will continue to administer second doses of the Pfizer vaccine at various clinics in the Hampton Roads area, including the Norfolk Health Department located at 830 Southampton Ave. in Norfolk, VA. Any resident that would like to get vaccinated at a local health department can find details on locations and availability at https://vaccinate.virginia.gov/, or residents can go to the Vaccine Finder at https://www.vaccines.gov/.
Residents who received their first dose of vaccination at a Virginia Department of Health site, such as Military Circle Mall, can visit any location for their second dose that is providing the type of vaccine they received. A Covid-19 Vaccination Record Card showing proof of first vaccination must be provided.
If you have misplaced your vaccination card, the Virginia Department of Health can send you a copy of your record. To request a copy visit https://www.vdh.virginia.gov/immunization/immunization- record-request-form/ or call 804-864-8055.
