COVID-19 VACCINE UPDATE a/o April 19, 2021:

The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is now available by appointment to all Wright-Patterson Air Force Base active-duty members, Department of Defense civilians and contractors, and TRICARE beneficiaries ages 16 and older. 

To schedule an appointment to receive the vaccine you can visit https://informatics-stage.health.mil/WPAFBCOVIDApp/ or call 937-257-SHOT.  Choose from one of the available dates and times and visit the Wright-Patterson Club when scheduled.

Our current supply projections allow for vaccine administration to continue on Mondays and Tuesdays as they have been, with the number of slots varying each week as we balance issuing new Dose 1 and completing the cycle with Dose 2. 

The Med Group is also offering a vaccine day on Saturday, May 1 from 9 a.m. to noon for those employees and beneficiaries who are unable to visit during the week.  The follow-up day for Dose 2 will be May 22.

Please see the attached State of Ohio COVID-19 update. All Ohioans age 16 and up are now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. Individuals aged 16-17 will be eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine, the only COVID-19 vaccine authorized for use for those under age 18.

Due to supply constraints, individuals interested in receiving the vaccine should pursue all avenues available. If you decide to receive the vaccine off-base, please inform your unit POC for tracking and awareness. This helps inform installation leadership on future posture. If you are a military member, provide your documentation to the 88 MDG to get your shot records updated.

To schedule a vaccine off-base, visit the State of Ohio vaccine scheduling website at https://gettheshot.coronavirus.ohio.gov. The site will identify nearby providers and help you schedule an appointment. Additional details about the stationary vaccination sites and mobile clinics can be found at https://coronavirus.ohio.gov
