Mandatory Vaccination Policy for DoD Personnel
The DOD has mandated that all service members (Active Duty, Guard or Reserve) be immunized against COVID-19. See DoD memo.
Service members are fully vaccinated two weeks after completing the second dose of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine or two weeks after receiving a single dose of a one-dose vaccine. Those with previous COVID-19 infection are still required to be vaccinated.
Below shows the compliance timelines by which service members must be fully vaccinated:
Air Force Active Duty personnel: Nov. 2, 2021. | Air Force Reserve & Air National Guard personnel: Dec. 2, 2021. (Air Force release)
Army Active Duty personnel: Dec. 15, 2021. | Army Reserve & Army National Guard personnel: June 30, 2022. (Army release)

Coast Guard Active Duty personnel: Nov. 24, 2021 | Coast Guard Active Duty & Reserve personnel: Dec. 24, 2021. (USCG Vaccine Guidance)
On October 1, 2021, the Deputy Secretary of Defense signed the Mandatory Coronavirus Disease 2019 Vaccination of DoD Civilian Employees memorandum requiring mandatory vaccination of the Federal civilian workforce in support of Executive Order 14043. Suspense for achieving fully vaccinated status is Nov. 22, 2021, subject to exemptions as required by law. One is “Fully vaccinated” two weeks after the second shot in a two-dose series, or two weeks after a single-shot series.”
If you are seeking an exemption from the vaccination requirement for reasons of religious accommodation or medical reasons, contact your Service Element Commander.
