April 27, 2021 – The large vaccination clinic in Hampton moves to the Hampton Coliseum this week, as the state takes the lead in operating the clinic. It opens Thursday, April 29. 

Previously, the clinic was at the Hampton Roads Convention Center, as part of Operation Vaccinate the Peninsula, a consortium that includes six local governments, three hospital/medical systems, and the local offices of the Virginia Department of Health. 

“I am so proud that hundreds of our city staff have helped to run the clinic for the past 12 weeks. It truly was a Herculean effort that delivered almost 40,000 shots,” said City Manager Mary Bunting. 

“I also thank the Virginia Department of Emergency Management for continuing and expanding clinic operations, so that our staff can get back to their regular jobs and open more of our city facilities.  The sooner everyone receives a vaccine, the sooner we can return to doing all the things that make Hampton a special place.”

The Hampton clinic will operate Monday through Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Register for any day here. Some days will be for second shots of Moderna for those who received their first shots at the convention center, including April 30 and May 7. Those people are being contacted to schedule appointments.

People who have transportation needs can register for a bus pass can do so here or by calling Hampton's 3-1-1 Citizen Contact Center at 727-8311. 

Individuals 18 years of age and older will be able to schedule their own appointments; check hampton.gov/covid for scheduling at any Peninsula clinic; call 1-877-829-4682, or visit vaccinate.virginia.gov. Additional languages are available.

Below are some helpful hints for the public who are scheduled to visit one of these sites:

  • Please plan to arrive no earlier than 20 minutes prior to your appointment time. 
  • Please plan to bring a copy of your invitation (email, text, barcode) or proof of your name when you arrive at the site. 
  • People who are 16 and 17 are able to receive the Pfizer vaccine only. They must have a parent or guardian with them and show proof of age. Clinic signups indicate what vaccine is being used that day.

This community vaccination center will not replace other local, small-scale efforts to deliver COVID-19. This site is state-managed and made possible thanks to FEMA funding granted to Virginia for the state’s continued response to COVID-19.
