Andersen Air Force Base received its first COVID-19 Vaccine doses and began distribution for designated personnel Jan 12.

Vaccine distribution will be in line with the Department of Defense’s prioritized phased approach for administering the vaccine to strengthen the DoD’s ability to protect our people, maintain readiness, and support the national COVID-19 response.

Due to a limited quantity of available vaccine doses in the initial shipment, the vaccine will only be available to Phase 1-A personnel. These personnel include healthcare providers and support staff, emergency services, and public safety personnel.

More shipments are expected to arrive here in the coming weeks and will be available to more DoD personnel, high-risk beneficiaries and dependents.
