Public Advocate has learned: The Covid-19 vaccination is not mandatory in the US military at the present time as the vaccines are only authorized for emergency use ("EUA"). An official Army article published on January 7, 2021 confirms that the Covid-19 vaccination is not mandatory from a draft advisory memo:
"The vaccines are currently only approved for emergency use and are not mandatory for Department of Defense personnel and beneficiaries at this time. However, military health officials are urging prioritized DoD personnel and beneficiaries to get vaccinated to protect their health, their Families, and their community, and lower the public health risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic."
