The 72nd Medical Group has partnered with the Oklahoma County Public Health Department to do a mass COVID vaccination clinic on March 27 for FIRST DOSE of Moderna. The clinic will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Bldg. 1094 (the base medical treatment facility).

Anyone 18 and older with base access is eligible to be vaccinated. Active duty military and dependents will have designated priority times. Due to the partnering with the local county, the DOD vaccination schema is not being followed.

A valid base ID is required. The medical group wanted to stress there is a large volume of vaccines available to reach military, military dependents, civilians, contractors, retirees and anyone else with base access and ID.

Personnel are encouraged to enter the base through the gate nearest their home and make their way to the Medical Treatment Facility.

The vaccination is by appointment only. To sign up, visit https://covidvaccinesignup.timetap.com/#/ You may need to use a non-DOD computer and follow instructions on site to sign up. Please do not arrive more than 10 minutes before your appointment time.

If military or military dependent, there are times set aside from 10 to 11 a.m. and 1:30 to 3 p.m. However, access to all times remains available.

Scheduling of second dose vaccination information will be given to patients when they receive their first dose.

Be aware the Tinker Gate is closed and the Visitor Control Center will temporarily move to Gott Gate with limited capability over the weekend. There will not be visitor passes issued for appointments.
