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 Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has fully authorized the Pfizer COMIRNATY® vaccine for individuals age 16 and older.
  • The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is offered through an FDA Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for children ages 12 -15.
  • The Johnson & Johnson and Moderna vaccines are offered through an FDA EUA for individuals age 18 and older.
The CDC recommends COVID-19 vaccination for all people 12 years and older, including people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to get pregnant now, or might become pregnant in the future.

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 Ready Reserve, including the National Guard, who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This include 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. 
  • Find a DOD COVID Vaccine Location near you.
 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.

Additional Dose for Immunocompromised

If you have certain immunocompromising conditions, such as undergoing cancer treatment or taking medications which suppress your immune system, CDC recommends you get an additional dose of an mRNA vaccine at least 28 days after your second dose of an mRNA vaccine. >>Learn More

Booster Dose (Pfizer Only)

A COVID-19 Pfizer booster shot is available for people who completed their primary Pfizer vaccine series at least 6 months ago AND meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • 65 years of age and older and residents in long term care facilities should receive a booster dose
  • 50-64 years of age with underlying medical conditions should receive a booster dose
  • 18-49 years of age with underlying medical conditions
  • 18-64 years of age who live or work in a high-risk setting

Get the COVID-19 vaccine to protect yourself, your family, your community, and our nation.
