Vaccine Eligibility

Our priority is to protect our Service members, Department of Defense (DOD) civilians and families to safeguard national security capabilities and support the whole-of-government response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. The Defense Health Agency (DHA) developed this digital toolkit to help you communicate with beneficiaries about eligibility for the COVID-19 Vaccine at DOD Vaccination Sites.

Beneficiaries should confirm with their local military hospital, clinic, or DOD vaccination site to see if they have the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine available. TRICARE beneficiaries can visit www.TRICARE.mil/VaccineAppointments to make an appointment.

Eligible beneficiaries can also receive the vaccine from other vaccine sources in the community, including a local pharmacy at no cost or a state or local vaccination site.

Beneficiaries can visit Vaccines.gov to find clinics, pharmacies, and other local locations that offer the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.  Beneficiaries should let their local DOD Primary Care Manager know and provide them a copy of the vaccine card for their health record.

The materials in this toolkit will accomplish the following:

  • To increase beneficiary awareness of the approval of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine for adolescents ages 12 and over.
  • To provide beneficiaries and their children ages 12 and over with information on where and how to sign up for the Pfizer vaccine.

Please use the materials below as appropriate, as they apply to your facility.

Banner for subpage: COVID-19 Vaccine Appointments for Eligible Adults

As of April 19, all Department of Defense (DOD) beneficiaries can make an appointment, as available, to get the COVID-19 vaccine at DOD vaccination sites.

TRICARE beneficiaries are eligible and authorized to get a vaccine at any DOD vaccination site.

Beneficiaries can get a COVID-19 vaccine at any military hospital, clinic, or DOD vaccination site that offers the vaccine, even if it’s not where they normally get care.

  • The number of open appointments will vary by vaccination site. This is because sites are getting different amounts of vaccine doses.
  • Beneficiaries should visit the TRICARE DOD COVID-19 Vaccine Appointments page to see what appointment tools their local military hospital or clinic is using.

Beneficiaries in a priority tier who haven't gotten their vaccine yet should make their appointment now. They can also go to a walk-in site to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

The materials in this toolkit will accomplish the following:

  • Increase beneficiary awareness that COVID-19 vaccine appointments are available and are easy to schedule at their any military hospital, clinic, or DOD vaccination site that offers the vaccine, even if it’s not where they normally get care.

Please use the materials below as appropriate, as they apply to your facility.
