COVID-19 Vaccine Update
Published March 18, 2021
The new COVID-19 vaccine registration process received an influx of appointments last week, leading to technical issues that prevented some shipbuilders from making an appointment.
IT is working through the issues and we are reopening the registration process today for shipbuilders to make appointments for next week. Going forward, please keep the following in mind:
- The amount of vaccines we receive dictates the number of available appointments. NNS will add new appointments and make the registration process available each week based on vaccine shipments, which are unpredictable and will likely vary.
- Vaccination hours on Monday, March 22, and Tuesday, March 23, will begin at 3 a.m. to accommodate second and third shifts. A time charge will be provided to hourly employees for time taken during regular working hours to receive the vaccine.
- Supervisors are responsible for registering shipbuilders without company email access. A registration link is available on MyNNS, and shipbuilders can also call the COVID-19 Hotline at 1-844-243-8749, option 6, to register.
- If you sign up for a time and do not receive confirmation, please do not sign up again. Report at the time you scheduled. If confirmation is needed, email [email protected]. Employees are required to have their NNS badge and either a confirmation email (printed or on your phone) or their name on the vaccine center’s list to be admitted.
- It is absolutely imperative that you show up for your scheduled appointment. If you know you can’t make your scheduled appointment time, please email [email protected] to reschedule. Do not arrive more than five minutes before your appointment time. This will help prevent unnecessary lines and long wait times.
- If shipbuilders have a disability that makes standing in line for the vaccine difficult, please call (757) 380-7776 to make alternative arrangements.
Please know we are working diligently to address any issues that arise with the new registration system, and we ask for your continued patience. Your efforts to help stop the spread of COVID-19 are appreciated.
