Today I spotted a C130 on adsbexchange flying near KADW with the callsign VVAX998. Though it's probably a coincidence, I thought it was weird the callsign makes one think of "vaccine" and I was unable to find any info regarding the VVAX callsign. I also saw VVAX598 a few days ago. Anyone know anything about this callsign?

VV is for Navy or Marine aircraft, AX would be the tail code, and 998 may be the last 3 digits of the plane number, or it's nose number of the aircraft. My records show the call sign would be for VR-53, Fleet Logistics Support Squadron 53 (USNR) at NAF Washington, DC.
