WEST POINT – West Point Public Health/Keller Army Community Hospital will be providing the FIRST DOSE of the COVID-19 vaccination to the Tier 2 population – which includes ALL eligible Department of Defense beneficiaries ages 16 and older – on May 4th, 6th, and May 20th at the Holleder Center (located on Howze Place, West Point, N.Y.).

DoD beneficiaries include ANY military active, veteran, retiree, and their dependents; ANY DoD employee; ANY person that has a DoD-issued ID.

Tier 2 population can schedule appointments, to receive the FIRST DOSE on either May 4th, 6th, or May 20th, using the COVID Vaccine Online Appointment Tool (COVAX) at https://informatics-stage.health.mil/COVAX/.

Instructions on how to schedule an appointment using COVAX can be found at https://keller.tricare.mil/Health-Services/West-Point-Dept-of-Public-Health/COVID-19-Vaccine-INFO.

If you are DoD-eligible and missed your opportunity to get the COVID-19 vaccinate during the previous Tier or you ‘opted-out’ of receiving the vaccination but changed your mind, you are eligible to receive the vaccination during the Tier 2 sessions.

For those waiting for the SECOND DOSE, Keller will make public notification when we are accepting appointments for the second dose.

As a reminder:

  • Face coverings must be worn at all times on West Point.
  • Vaccine recipients must present a Uniformed Services ID card or their DoD Beneficiary ID card at their vaccine appointment.
  • Vaccine recipients should enter the Stoney Lonesome Road Access Control Point/Gate and follow the traffic signs.
  • Parking is available at LOT A at the corner of Stoney Lonesome Road and Howze Place. Direction to the vaccine site will be provided from the parking lot.

Operation Immune Knight is the West Point COVID-19 Vaccine Task Force’s plan to vaccinate the Greater West Point community. The task force includes members of the U.S. Military Academy, Garrison West Point, Keller Army Community Hospital, West Point Public Health, and several Red Cross and Mount St. Mary’s College volunteers.
