  • COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective, and free.
  • Getting the vaccine can reduce the risk of severe disease, hospitalizations and long-term complications for COVID-19
  • For children, the vaccine can also curb community transmission and reduce disruptions to in-person learning activities.

DOD COVID-19 Vaccine Service Member Mandate

COVID-19 vaccines are required for all members of the armed forces on active duty or in the Reserve or Guard components, including pregnant service members, according to DOD. Each service decides their own deadline for vaccination.

  • If you’re a service member and have 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 possible.
  • Find a DOD COVID Vaccine Location near you.

If you have questions about the COVID-19 vaccine mandate, contact your unit commander.

Stay Up to Date with COVID-19 Vaccines and Boosters

You are up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines if you have completed a COVID-19 vaccine primary series and received the most recent booster dose recommended for you by CDC.

 Vaccine recommendations are based on your age, the vaccine you first received, and time since last dose. People who are moderately or severely immunocompromised have different recommendations for COVID-19 vaccines.

  • The Pfizer-BioNTech (bivalent) booster is authorized for people -5 years of age and older.
  • The Moderna (bivalent) booster is authorized for people 6 years of age and older.

People who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 — those who have had a primary vaccine series — and people who’ve had a primary series plus one or two additional boosters are eligible to get one of these new updated (bivalent) boosters.
