The Department of Defense is approaching the one million milestone for COVID-19 vaccination doses, as Maj. Gen. Jeff Taliaferro, the Joint Staff’s vice director for operations, confirmed to members of the House Armed Services Committee Feb. 17.
As part of those administered doses, 273,939 civilian DoD employees, contractors and beneficiaries have received at least the initial COVID-19 vaccine dose, a Pentagon spokesperson told Federal Times, with 111,431 of those people fully vaccinated against the virus. There was no specific data available on how much of that number is spread between DoD feds, contractors or military beneficiaries.
