Nellis beneficiaries who are 75 and older, medical, fire responders, security, deployers, childcare workers, teachers and other frontline essential workers are now eligible to schedule an appointment to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at the Mike O'Callaghan Military Medical Center (MOMMC). Appointments will be available 7-11 a.m. and 1-2:30 p.m. March 11-12.

Interested beneficiaries may call the COVID Hotline at 702-653-2273 followed by option 9, option 1, option 1 to confirm eligibility and schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment. Beneficiaries may also fill out postcards that are available throughout MOMMC and return them to the immunization service desk on the first floor. 

The MOMMC teams have been working diligently to strategically request, schedule and administer vaccines to ensure smooth transition into each phase.

“The goal is to administer as many vaccines as quickly and safely as possible in accordance with the Department of Defense distribution plan,” said Col. Brent Johnson, 99th Medical Group Commander. “We’re pleased to announce that we’re ready to move into the next phase where we can provide the vaccine to our 65 and older beneficiaries.”
