COVID-19 IR Update
The COVID-19 vaccine is now mandatory vaccine for all military members. Click HERE for the full guidance update including links to the DoD and DAF guidance and memos.
The SECAF has ordered all Airmen to be in one of the three categories below by 2 Nov (2 Dec for Reservists. As an IMA, your active component commander can hold you to an earlier date).
- Fully vaccinated
- Have an approved religious or medical exemption or have a viable exemption in progress
- Decline the vaccination
While in status, IMAs and PIRR can get the vaccine at their supporting Military Treatment Facility (MTF) if available and prioritized. Members who choose to get the vaccine through a civilian medical provider should submit their paperwork showing civilian vaccine administration via myPers to the HQ RIO Medical Team so that it can be added to the member's medical records. For more information about the vaccine, to go https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/index.html. For information on finding the vaccine in your local community, go to www.vaccines.gov. COVID-19 vaccines are free, regardless of insurance coverage. For more information about the availability of the vaccine at the MTF, contact them directly.
