WASHINGTON – The U.S. Army surpassed one million COVID-19 vaccines administered at medical treatment facilities yesterday. As of May 11, the Army has administered 1,014,095 COVID-19 vaccination doses at medical treatment facilities in roughly 80 locations around the world to servicemembers, families, civilians, contractors, and other eligible beneficiaries.

Of those, 436,533 recipients are fully vaccinated and 577,562 have received the first dose.

Approximately 358,512 Soldiers have received their first vaccine and 278,336 are fully vaccinated. More than half of all Soldiers and more than three-fourths of active duty Soldiers have received at least one dose.

“I’m incredibly proud and thankful for the effort our medical teams have invested to reach this milestone of one million vaccinations administered. It is a testament to their dedication to the health and safety of our force,” said Christopher Lowman, senior official performing the duties of the Under Secretary of the Army. “Over three quarters of our active duty Soldiers have received one or both shots and this is helping us improve our readiness and take care of our communities.”

The Army’s efforts are aligned with the Department of Defense’s mission to aggressively and effectively administer vaccinations and is contributing to the protection and readiness of active-duty, Reserve and National Guard Soldiers, as well as all mission-essential civilian employees and other personnel performing mission-essential functions. Vaccination appointments are currently open to all eligible beneficiaries.
