DHA Appointing Portal

You can now use the DHA Appointing Portal (DAP), an online scheduling tool, to book and manage your COVID-19 vaccine appointment at many local military hospitals or clinics. Check to see if your location is using DAP on the COVID-19 Vaccine Locations page.

By using the DAP self-service application, you can schedule your COVID-19 vaccine appointment and cancel your appointment, if necessary. 

You don’t have to be enrolled to a military hospital or clinic to use the DAP. You also don’t need an account or Common Access Card (CAC) to make a COVID-19 vaccine appointment. 

What information do I need to book an appointment        DHA Appointing Portal logo

  • To book an appointment, you’ll only need your:   
    • First and last name
    • Department of Defense ID number. (Active duty service members can find it on the back of your military-CAC and on the front of family member and retiree ID cards.)
    • Birthdate
    • Phone number
  • If you’ve received your first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, you will also be asked to provide the date of the vaccine as well as the name of the vaccine manufacturer (Pfizer or Moderna). This will help make sure you get the correct second dose.

How can I confirm my appointment?

  • After booking your COVID-19 vaccine, the DAP website will confirm that your appointment was made successfully.
  • Contact your local military hospital, clinic or vaccination site for their COVID-19 vaccination process.

At the recommendation of the FDA and CDC, the Department of Defense is immediately pausing the use of the Janssen vaccine (also known as the J&J vaccine). The safety of our force and their families is a top priority for the Department. We are communicating this pause to our military health facilities and are reviewing our global vaccine distribution to address this issue and ensure we can continue to provide vaccines to our DoD population at home and abroad.

At this time, we do not know how long the pause will last. We will continue to communicate to the force as we learn more.
