COVID-19 Vaccine Update
35th Medical Group Beneficiaries,
The Moderna COVID vaccine is currently being administered here at Misawa Air Base. At this time, it is only available to specific populations. We are administering the vaccine in a specific targeted approach to maximize protection based off of our supply.
Active Duty personnel and civilian work force employees will be contacted through their chain of command for vaccination opportunities. We will notify other beneficiaries when it becomes available to them.
