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 Read Reserve, including the National Guard, who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Each service will decide their own deadline for vaccinations.
  • 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.

Recommended Third Dose

 If you have an immune system that is moderately to severely compromised, the CDC recommends you may receive an additional dose of mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna). This would be at least 4 weeks after your second dose. >>Learn More
