** Important Notices about COVID 19 & Flu Vaccine **

COVID Update: September 2022

U.S. Army Health Clinic – Vilseck is offering COVID-19 BiValent vaccines for those age 12 and over! The BiValent is shown to provide protection against BA4 and BA5 present in the current Omicron variant. For appointments, please call 06371-9464-2300 or 590-2300.
 
Pfizer is available for those 12 and older. Moderna is available for those age 18 and older. A valid ID is required for each person receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. Each person receiving a vaccine, must have a scheduled appointment slot. Please bring your COVID-19 vaccine card to your appointment. . Please fill out the vaccine screening form DHA 207 prior to arrival for scheduled appointments.
 

Update on Janssen Booster: 

We are aware of the discrepancy between the position of U.S. Health Authorities and Germany on booster vaccinations for persons who initially received the Janssen vaccination. U.S. Health Authorities (The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration) consider receipt of one dose of an mRNA vaccine (i.e., Pfizer or Moderna) or a second dose of the Janssen vaccine two months after the first vaccination as rendering full booster protection.

Presently, Germany requires Janssen vaccinated individuals to receive two booster shots to be considered fully boosted and exempted from the 2G-plus testing requirements. Army MTFs are required to follow U.S. Health Authority standards for administering vaccinations. As a result, our MTFs cannot offer a 2nd mRNA booster vaccination to Janssen recipients and do not recommend receipt of such a booster vaccination at this time. We are working with our higher headquarters and the host nation to determine an appropriate way forward. In the meantime, those who were vaccinated with Janssen may have to undergo COVID testing to enter some host nation establishments.

 

Janssen Vaccine Availability: 

On December 16, 2021, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention voted unanimously to preferentially recommended mRNA vaccines (Pfizer or Moderna) over Janssen. The decision was made due to the higher vaccine effectiveness of mRNA vaccines and their superior safety profile over the Janssen vaccine. Those who are unable or unwilling to receive an mRNA vaccine may request an exception to receive Janssen through a face-to-face or virtual encounter with their healthcare provider.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have expanded COVID-19 booster shot eligibility to all fully vaccinated Americans who are age 12 and older. Those who received the Pfizer or Moderna immunization series are now eligible for a booster five months after their second shot. Those who received the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine are eligible for a booster two months after the first shot.  
Mix and Match: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) also amended the emergency use authorization (EUA) for COVID-19 vaccines to allow “mixing and matching” of any of the available COVID-19 vaccines when used as a booster regardless of original vaccine administered.
