COVID-19 Vaccine Availability
COVID-19 vaccines currently available to all U.S. citizens and residents are Johnson & Johnson/Janssen, Pfizer-BioNTech-COMIRNATY®, and Moderna. These vaccines are safe and effective against COVID-19 and its variants. The CDC recommends COVID-19 vaccination for all people 5 years and older.
DOD COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate
The DOD now requires COVID-19 vaccines for all members of the Armed Forces under DOD authority on active duty or in the Reserve Component who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This includes pregnant service members. Each service will decide their own deadline for vaccination.
- If you’re a service member and you’ve received a COVID-19 vaccine from a non-DOD provider, make sure to update your medical records.
- If you haven’t received your COVID vaccine yet, schedule your vaccine as soon as you can.
The DOD already requires all ADSMs to get other types of vaccines before they join the military. There are very narrow religious and medical exemptions available on a case-by-case basis. If you have questions, contact your unit commander.
COVID-19 Vaccine for Children
Getting your children vaccinated can help protect them against COVID-19, as well as reduce disruptions to in-person learning and activities by helping curb community transmission. According to the CDC, vaccination also reduces risk of:
- Severe disease
- Long-term COVID-19 complications
The CDC recommends that children ages 12 to 15 receive a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine and children ages 5 to 11 receive a pediatric Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. The Pfizer-BioNTech pediatric COVID-19 vaccine is administered as a 2-dose series, 21-days apart. Each dose contains 10mcg of the vaccine, which is one third the adult dose.
If you are unsure whether the vaccine is right for your children, we recommend you discuss your child’s medical conditions, including prior reaction to vaccines, with a medical provider.
People age 18 years and older who received Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines may get a booster.
