Getting Care

COVID-19 Vaccine Availability

COVID-19 vaccines currently available to all U.S. citizens and residents are 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 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.
 

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. Vaccination also reduces risk of:

  • Severe disease
  • Hospitalizations
  • 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. Pfizer Pediatric doses are available beginning 11/9 through the Immunization Clinic (2nd Floor NH Beaufort). 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.
 

Additional Dose for Immunocompromised

People who are moderately to severely immunocompromised are recommended to get an additional dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (i.e., Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna).

Booster Dose

Certain groups of people are recommended to get a booster shot.
To learn more about the COVID-19 vaccine, visit www.tricare.mil/COVIDVaccine.

People should talk to their healthcare provider about their medical condition, and whether getting an additional dose is appropriate for them.
 

Are You a DOD Civilian Employee?

All DOD civilian employees must be fully vaccinated by Nov. 22, 2021, subject to exemptions as required by law. >> See SecDef Memo

  • Employees are considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after completing the second dose of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine or 2 weeks after receiving a single dose of a one-dose COVID-19 vaccine.
  • New DoD civilian employees must be fully vaccinated by their entry on duty (start) date or Nov. 22, 2021, whichever is later.


Thank you for your understanding that NHB does not determine vaccine supply priority, sequence, or timing of receipt and subsequent distribution of the vaccine. We continue to follow the DoD Phase Schema, and we will continue to update our Facebook page and website with the most current information on who is eligible to receive a vaccination.
